Everyday Cookies

Seems we only discuss cookies around Christmas when everyone goes into full scale baking mode.  I made a batch of chocolate chunk cookies the other day because the weather finally cooled off and apparently ChiTownDiner did the same.  mar52 made oatmeal/butterscotch chip and oatmeal/walnut cookies yesterday.  What are some of the "everyday" cookies you like to make?

    Thanks for posting this. I read it and had to go get a cookie. Oh, I'm almost out. How about making some more?

    I'm usually a chocolate chip cookie person who adds a little bit of oatmeal to my recipe.
     
    I also love molasses cookies.
     
    I've always wanted to try the press cookies but don't want to buy a press to sit in the cupboard unused.
     
    Forgot one....  Tofu peanut butter which are delicious and vegan.

    I make a chocolate chip cookie, that's unusual, for one thing it's makes a small batch, and uses a combination of cake flour and all purpose flour.  I make a log out it and can bake at a later time
     
    Also, the Silver Palate oatmeal I find at Big Lot has a great oatmeal-raisin cookie recipe on the inside of the box.

    I love oatmeal raisin cookies!  I always used the recipe on the back of the Quaker Oats container.  Just like I use the recipe on the back of the Nestle's chocolate chunk package!

    Love a dense, chewy oatmeal raisin but I've never made them.

    mar52 - You're right about those cookie presses.  I rarely use mine, and have used it more for making cheese straws and a couple of times, a butter cookie using a Land O' Lakes recipe.
     
    For store bought - I like Famous Amos chocolate chip with pecans.

    I never bothered to buy a cookie press, figuring I might use it once or twice........or maybe never. 
     
    My Mother used to make a cookie called Split Seconds.  It's basically a sugar cookie that you form into a log, make an indentation down the middle and fill with any kind of jam.  Then you cut them diagonally.  I haven't made them for years.  I'll have to make that my next cookie. 
     
    Two other good ones are Pecan Bars and Spellbinders.  Pecan Bars are exactly like pecan pie but you bake them in a 9x13 pan.  Spellbinders have oatmeal, coconut and whole peanuts.  MH will not touch either of these so I never make them.

    My error. My childhood favorite was a cookie by Burry's called doubble fudge cookies, chocolate cookie with large helping of fudge in middle. ...not Keebler, although they make a cookie a poor copy, with the fudge inside chocolate "elf" cookies....anyone remember Burry"s double chocolate fudge????

    I did a little research on my favorite Burry's cookie. Burry's WAS a cookie company out of Elizabeth New Jersey. Their big contract was making the girl scout cookies (back when they were bigger and better). They also made Scooter Pies. The Double Fudge cookie I remember as a kid later was rebranded to "Fudgetown" cookies and some of you may remember them under that name. Boy, do I miss them!!!

    I'm an older timer and I sold Girl Scout cookies but I guess I'm not old enough because I never saw containers like THAT!!
     
    I do not remember Fudgetown Cookies for two reasons.  1.  I don't like chocolate.  2.  All our cookies were homemade by my Mother.  Just like I didn't have store bought bread until I went to college.  Mom made all the bread we had at home.

    Commercial cookies of my youth that I loved....  Girl Scout Chocolate Mint and their Samosas I forget what Burry's called them., Fiddlestix, pinwheels (with the raspberry jelly in the bottom)  and one that is still a favorite...
     
    Devil's Food.  I can eat the entire package in almost one sitting.

    This is so weird, I was in the grocery store last week and something triggered my memory of those fudge sandwich cookies, and checked the shelves to see if they were still being made.  Two things I remember about them was the hole in the center, and the filling was a lighter shade of brown from the cookie part.  I loved those cookies, which I'm sure were Burry's, thanks for posting pictures.
     
    Another store bought cookie - Vermont Country Store makes cookie buttons in several flavors.  Their zesty lemon and the peanut butter are very good.

    While I am broad minded enough to support all cookies, I do have an odd favorite.  I have always loved "good" fruit cakes.  (I know this opens an entirely new can of worms!)  My favorite cookie is a Tall House chocolate chip, extra chocolate chips, equal amount candied fruit cake fruit and then baked slightly less for a soft cookie.  
     
    Every new comer to the house bashes this cookie.  Of those that try it, 3/4's are back for seconds.  Last ten holiday dinners, first one gone from the cookie platter!

    I'd give it a shot.  I'm one of those freaks that actually likes fruit cake.  " />

    Anyone interested in fruitcake should buy it from these folks.  It really is quite good.  Now I'm thinking I might order one for the holidays.
     
    Another everyday cookie I really like is lemon bars.  Don't ever be tempted to use bottled lemon juice!  Fresh squeezed makes the best!

    I like to make Peanut Butter Cookies cause I like to make the indentations in them with a fork. Don't know why?
    I'll have to ask my Shrink!

    Love to make Oatmeal Scotchies, double chocolate peanut butter chip cookies and mint chocolate chip cookies (using Andes Candies baking chips!).  I'm more of a "bar" kinda guy though: brownies (with mint-chocolate frosting using peppermint patties), lemon bars, Magic bars, chocolate chip-pumpkin bars, blondies and my all time favorite sweet...Rice Krispie treats!!
