What kind of cookies would you like for me to make for you?

Asked by Kardamom (28690points) May 6th, 2015

Do you have a favorite cookie? Was it something your mom or your grandma made for you when you are a kid? Maybe you go in for Girlscout cookies or Lorna Doones.

Do you have any new cookie recipes that you’ve come across lately?

Me, I’m kind of a peanut butter cookie kind of gal, but I’ve kind of got a hankering for some oatmeal cookies with dried cranberries instead of raisins.

What’s your pleasure, cookie-wise?

Oatmeal cookies with cranberries? Pure genius!

ragingloli's avatar

unbaked ones.

Kardamom's avatar

@Dutchess_III How about These? They have the addition of dried cherries.

@Blondesjon I tried to find some that had bourbon or rum in them. No such luck. But I did find these Bacon, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies

@gorillapaws These Oatmeal Cookies have cranberries, white chocolate chunks, and macadamia nuts : )

@ragingloli Here’s some No Bake Peanut Butter Balls for you.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Mmm! That could be delish! But no nuts, please.

Kardamom's avatar

@Dutchess_III OK, no nuts for you, my friend. Try These

ragingloli's avatar

Kardamom's avatar

Peanut butter chocolate chip! I wish @jonsblond would send me some.

Kardamom's avatar

@jonsblond Toe Jam Cookies just for you : )

@chyna I’m guessing that @jonsblond has posted them here before, but maybe if we ask her again, she’ll post them again. Unless it’s a secret recipe.

I hate peanut butter cookies!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Toe jam? That is so EW!

It’s an ancient blonde secret. No one is getting my recipe @Kardamom.

I like chocolate chip cookies baked like brownies (in a square pan cut in squares). Never wat then anymore.

Lately, I’ve enjoyed these.

cookieman's avatar

Really?, REALLY?!
You have to ask me this?

I am SO disappointed.
I-I thought you knew me.

I want some Christmas cookies. Sugar cookies with frosting. Ummmm.

Blondesjon's avatar

@Kardamom . . . The bacon is intriguing and, let’s face it, nearly mandatory when you think about it. What I keep asking for are the cookies with some jalapeno or thai chili in them.

I like to put Andes mints into my cookies instead of chocolate chips.

There was a magazine about a year ago that had a liquor soaked cherry oatmeal cookie recipe. Not sure what the liquor was – brandy? I have to google it. Will post when I find.

As far as what I like, I like oatmeal chocolate chip, and I am a nut fan so the addition of nuts is a bonus. I like these cookies a bit over baked, so they’re kind of black on the bottom. I just feel like it adds extra flavor to them.

I also like Magic Cookie Bars. I don’t eat them too often, because I don’t come across them too often and I’d never make them. For anybody who doesn’t know what they are, they’re a bar with chocolate chips, coconut, walnuts and graham crackers (I think graham crackers).

There is an Italian cookie that is round like a little pillow and they usually have a light icing on them. They come in regular, anise and lemon. Not sure what they’re called. I’m also a fan of ginger snaps, anything with nuts and anything with coconut.

Store bought, I like Vienna Fingers.

Blondesjon's avatar

@jca . . . Lurve for any kind of cookie bars. Nobody makes them anymore.

chyna's avatar

^My mom used to….

Blondesjon's avatar

I know, right. My mom, her mom, my Dad’s mom, and all of my friends’ moms, where have all the cookie bars gone

Pachy's avatar

I don’t eat cookies anymore (too much sugar!) but if I did, I’d ask for oatmeal cookies with raisins. Mmmmmm…

talljasperman's avatar

I would rather have a rice crispy Square.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Oatmeal with raisins and chocolate chips, heavy on the raisins and put in extra Cardamom.

rojo's avatar

I haven’t had Hash Brownies in a long while?

Kolaczki cookies, yumm.

Coloma's avatar

Soft ginger snaps or molasses cookies please!

Another genius!

Pandora's avatar

oatmeal raisin

jca's avatar

You know what was another cookie that was a big hit every time I made it? Iced pumpkin cookies. Like little cakes, I made them without icing, they were just so good and flavorful on their own. I think I got the recipe from

cookieman's avatar

@Kardamom: Oh my! Yet another reason to visit Australia.

Kardamom's avatar

@jca I love everything pumpkin : )

AshlynM's avatar

Chocolate chip!

My grandmother used to make these star anise cookies that were flat and had shapes of birds and stuff pressed on them. She was German and I think they are common there. I don’t know what they were called but I sure miss them.

gorillapaws's avatar

@ARE_you_kidding_me Are you thinking of pizzelle? Maybe a German version of them?

ARE_you_kidding_me's avatar

@Kardamom That would be them! I may try to make some using that recipie

linguaphile's avatar


My favorite cookies of all time were the ones my grandma made for me—it had oatmeal, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, raisins and I think peanut butter. I think they tasted so good because they were made with Crisco, which I wouldn’t touch with a 10 foot pole today.

Kardamom's avatar

@linguaphile Here’s some that sound Similar only without peanut butter and only butterscotch chips, but it does have the Crisco. I love butterscotch chips. I may have to hunt some of those down this week.

jca's avatar

There’s a Nestle pre-made dough that usually can be found around the holidays, that’s oatmeal butterscotch chip. I usually add walnuts (because, as I said before, I love nuts). It’s a good cookie, very holiday-ish, very winter-ish.

Kardamom's avatar

@jca Yum! In my book, holiday foods are not just for the holidays : P

Pumpkin pie anyone?

ARE_you_kidding_me's avatar

@Kardamom I spoke with my mother and she sent me a photo of my grandmothers original springerle recipie. We actually have a few springerle pattern presses from her as well. I’ll be making these soon!

jca's avatar

@ARE_you_kidding_me: Can you post the springerle recipe? i googled springerle rolling pins on Amazon and found all kinds. I love anything flavored with anise (and I use fennel toothpaste from Trader Joe’s).

Kardamom's avatar

@jca This is turning into a real Fluther cookie exchange, huh? So fun : )

jca's avatar

@Kardamom: It’s actually a very inspiring question. It seems like cookies bring back a lot of good memories for many people. Even people who are not big cookie fans have some cookies that they like.

jca's avatar

@Kardamom: I found the recipe I originally was inspired from (yet never made the cookies, at least not yet):

Oatmeal-Cherry Cookies
SERVINGS: Makes about 2 dozen
These buttery oatmeal cookies are made with sour cherries in syrup—a juicy, sweet-tart alternative to the usual raisins. You can use Amarena cherries or, for a more grown-up indulgence, brandied cherries.

¾ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole-wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup lightly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup Amarena or brandied sour cherries in syrup, drained
1 tablespoons turbinado sugar

Preheat the oven to 350° and position racks in the upper and lower thirds. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk the flours with the baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter with the granulated and brown sugars at medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until combined. Add the oats and cherries and beat until the cherries are slightly mashed and evenly distributed.

Using a 2¼-inch scoop, drop balls of dough onto the baking sheets, spacing them evenly. Sprinkle the tops with the turbinado sugar. Bake for 18 minutes, shifting the sheets from top to bottom and front to back halfway through, until dark golden brown. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Make Ahead: The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
