Saturday

An assortment of cookies ~


I decided to make cookies to take to a friend's house for dinner.  I'm not usually stumped on what to bring, but this time I was told that I shouldn't bring anything because dinner was all set.   Well I don't know how to react really when someone says that to me, even good friends.  I like to bring something, but what?   So I decided to make cookies, but what kind.... I love chocolate, but not everyone really likes it, or can eat it.  So I decided to make a few different ones, however I like easy baking. Martha Stewart's Oatmeal Raisin cookies fit the bill and so do Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.   Plus the Chocolate cookies had a variation of rolling them in either powdered sugar or cocoa, which made for a nice little assortment.

First I made the Oatmeal Raisin.  One reviewer said to cook the raisins in water for 2 minutes and then let them steep for about 5 minutes.  This worked out really well, but make sure you drain them before adding them.  The raisins were very plump and juicy.  And the finished cookie was very tasty.  Thanks Martha....


Then when I made the chocolate cookies, I rolled half in powdered sugar and the other half in cocoa. 

The result of bringing cookies to dinner worked out perfectly.  They are easily added to anyone's planned dessert, or frozen for a future dessert for my friends.  Either way, I didn't go empty handed and felt glad that I was able to provide something to our dinner.


DL's Chocolate Crinkle cookies:

Yield:  3 dozen

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, melted
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
2 cups of white flour
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
3 eggs, room temperature
2 tsp. vanilla extract
white powdered sugar and cocoa powder for rolling the cookie
Procedure:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Spray or grease 3 cookie sheets

Stir melted butter, chocolate, sugar, eggs, vanilla and baking powder in a large bowl with a spatula by hand.  Mix well.

Fold in flour, until blended.

Roll into 1 inch balls and roll gently into the powdered sugar or cocoa powder.  Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes.

Let cool. 

They were very well received and eaten that night.  :)  A win-win situation!
