I'm in my first semester of culinary school and joined the Hospitality Management Society. We're doing a bake sale in a couple of weeks and I've been asked to bring some of my recipes for cookies and they are going to sell a couple of my cakes. We're raising money for a spring trip.

Anyway, on to the question....Anyone with a super cookie recipe that would not be real labor intensive to bake and sell? I have some really good ideas, but there are so many great bakers on this site that I thought I would ask.

I forgot about spritz. Those are my favorite cookies. Just trying to think of some different cookies. Something you don't see everyday...I'm sure someone will make chocolate chip. I think I will take the pumpkin cookie and icing recipe I saw on here yesterday also.

I have a recipe for what my family calls "monster cookies."...I'mnot sure what they are really called. They are made w/oatmeal, choco chips, m & m's, & nuts! VERY easy and are SOOOO good. I bring these to every potluck/bake sale and they always go over well. People always come back for more!!

Let me know if you'd like to try it.

One of my favorites right now is from Paula Deen...its called Paula's loaded oatmeal raisin cookie. The recipe makes a hube batch and they are sooooo easy (drop by spoonful) and delicious! You can get the recipe off of foodnetwork if you don't have her cookbooks.

I love craisin cookies. I hate raisins so I make an oatmeal cookie and add cranberries instead. Everyone loves them.

One of my favorite bake sale cookies is a peanut butter cookie (any recipie will do) put into a mini muffin pan, with bite size reeses cups pushed down in the middle. And with halloween so soon, you could probably find a big bag of mini reeses really cheep (esp. the day after halloween). They're really quick to make too. You just roll a little ball of PB cookie dough (I think about 1"), plop it in a greesed muffin cup, and push the unwraped reeses cup down so the cookie dough comes up the sides. Then bake them as usuall (or maybe a few minutes longer... not sure). Hope this makes sense. They usually sell really well because they are unusual looking, and familear at the same time, with the candy.

I found the pudding cookie on Recipezaar and tried it not too long ago. The cookies stay soft, but they do not taste like homemade. I tried using vanilla and chocolate pudding. The ones with chocolate pudding and PB chips had the best taste. Be sure to remove from oven as soon as the edges firm up in order for them to stay extra moist a chewy.

The PB reese cookies sound like they would be a big hit and they are very easy to make. It's been years since I've made a PB cookie. Thanks!

I was going to suggest this recipe but I guess they beat me to it.
My family loves this recipe. My little brother calls me all the time to ask if I can make him some more. They are great I make mine with the mini chocolate chips.

The best PB cookie recipe I have I got off of a school cook.

1 egg
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of PB

YEAH that is it --no flour or fuss or muss

Very peanut buttery-- crisp cookie

And when you are having a cookie crisis at 12:00 who can't come up with these ingredients!
