Tiramisu cookies. I love them!
Red, White and Blue cookies- basically a choc chip cookie dough with dried cranberries, white choc chips and dried blueberries! Everyone loves them. Not for decorating.
Sorry, but the best cookies I ever made are the ones I can't remember the recipe to. They were a chocolate chip cookie, but instead of it spreading sideways, it only spread a little, then grew tall and soft, but not so soft that you couldn't dunk them. They tasted like toffee lingering on your tongue, and held milk like a sponge.
If I ever remember it, you will be the second person to know. My son wants the recipe first.
Theresa - I like your new avatar pic! It's cute!
Maloslatko and Icecubed, thanx for those ideas, sounds great!![/b]
a chewy chocolate brownie cookie with chocolate chips Mmm
These cookies are delicious! They just melt in your mouth and the almond flavor is to die for! I first made them a few years ago, and each time since everyone has raved about them and asked for the recipe. Once, I dropped off gifts of these cookies to families belonging to our playgroup in our apartment complex. One of the women literally ran down the stairs and chased me down the street to ask for the recipe because she'd tried them after I'd left her part of the complex.

These are pretty impressive and delicious. especially if you love the Girl Scout thin mint cookies. It's a great recipe to use up those leftover candy canes also
Chocolate-Peppermint Cookies (Martha Stewart)
1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 ounces (5 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
3/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
8 large candy canes or 30 peppermint candies, crushed
2 pounds white chocolate, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Beat butter and sugar with a mixer on medium-high speed for 1 minute. Reduce speed to medium-low, and add egg, then yolk, beating well after each addition. Beat in peppermint extract. Slowly add flour mixture, and beat until just incorporated. Shape dough into 2 disks, wrap each in plastic, and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour (or up to 2 days).
Roll out 1 disk of dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes. Using a 2-inch round cutter, cut out circles, and place 1 inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Roll and cut scraps once. Freeze cookies until firm, about 15 minutes. Repeat with remaining disk.
Bake until cookies are dry to the touch, about 12 minutes. Transfer parchment, with cookies, to wire racks, and let cool. (Undecorated cookies will keep, covered, for up to 3 days.)
Sift crushed candy, and separate larger pieces from dust, reserving both. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pot of gently simmering water. Remove from heat. Dunk cookies into melted chocolate. Using a fork, turn to coat, let excess drip off, and gently scrape bottom against edge of bowl. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets, and sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of either candy pieces or dust on top. Repeat, sprinkling half the cookies with pieces and the rest with dust. Refrigerate until set, up to 3 hours. Decorated cookies are best served the same day.

Chocolate Sparkle Cookies
1/2 lb Bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
3 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/3 c Sugar, plus more for rolling
3/4 c Ground almonds
Powdered sugar, for garnish
1. Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler set over, but not touching, simmering water. Remove from the heat. Cut the butter into a few pieces and mix into the chocolate until melted.
2. Beat the eggs with an electric mixer, gradually adding the sugar until ribbons form, 5 to 10 minutes. Fold in the chocolate-butter mixture. Gently add the ground almonds. cover and refrigerate overnight.
3. Heat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
4. Use a cookie scoop to form the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls in granulated sugar, place on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart and immediately place in the oven.
5. Bake until the center of the cookies is no longer wet, 9 to 12 minutes. When slightly cool, lightly dust the cookies with powdered sugar.
The trick to these soft, truffle-like cookies is in the beating--beat the eggs and sugar until ribbons form, meaning that when the beaters are lifted, the batter falls back onto itself in ribbons. This could take up to 10 minutes of beating. You can grind raw almonds in a food processor or blender. These are best with chocolate that is 70% cocoa.
Makes about 36 cookies.

*I like to melt dark chocolate and drizzle it over the sandwiches. I also make these a day ahead, just like regular tiramisu.*
