Hi Pat,

Thanks for stopping by and Thanks so much for the Cookie Recipes. I love to Bake, so as you can imagine Christmas is always my favorite Holiday because of all of the great Goodies!

Here's Day One of the 24 days of Cookies this year. Indulge in these chocolate-frosted cookies with a marshmallow center made easier with a cookie mix.

Chocolate-Marshmallow Pillows

Cookies
1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® double chocolate chunk cookie mix
1/4
cup vegetable oil
2
tablespoons water
1
egg
2/3
cup chopped pecans
12
large marshmallows, cut in half
Frosting
1
cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)
1/3
cup whipping cream
1
teaspoon butter or margarine
1
teaspoon vanilla
1/2
cup powdered sugar
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water, egg and pecans until soft dough forms.
  2. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven; immediately press marshmallow half lightly, cut side down, on top of cookie. Bake 1 to 2 minutes longer or just until marshmallows begin to soften. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in 1-quart nonstick saucepan, melt chocolate chips over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. Add whipping cream, butter and vanilla; blend well. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth.
  5. Spread frosting over each cooled cookie, covering marshmallow. Let stand until frosting is set. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

Wishing You A Wonderful Christmas My Friend,

Phil

Hello Friends,

Moving on in our Countdown to Christmas, here's Day Two of the 24 days of Cookies for this year. Looking for a dessert made with Gold Medal® flour? Then check out these great raspberry almond bars - a chewy treat that my family loves.

Chewy Raspberry Almond Bars

1 1/2
cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
3/4
cup packed light brown sugar
1/2
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup cold butter or margarine
1
egg, beaten
3/4
cup seedless red raspberry jam
1
cup fresh raspberries (6 oz)
1/2
cup sliced almonds
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 9-inch square pan with baking spray with flour.
  2. In large bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 cup mixture for topping. To remaining mixture, stir in egg until just moistened.
  3. Press dough firmly and evenly into bottom of pan, using fingers or bottom of measuring cup. Spread with jam. Arrange raspberries over jam. Stir almonds into reserved crumb mixture; sprinkle evenly over raspberries.

May Your Christmas Be Bright & Joyful,

Hello Everyone,

I'm afraid that I've gotten a little behind in my Countdown, so here's both Day Three and Day Four of the 24 days of Cookies for this year.

First of all, jump-start a double chocolate and caramel cookie with a foolproof sugar cookie mix.

Caramel Filled Sandies

1
pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/4
cup finely chopped toasted pecans
2
tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
34
caramel candies, unwrapped (from 14 oz bag)
3
tablespoons half and half
1/3
cup dark chocolate chips, melted
1/3
cup white baking chips, melted
1
tablespoon coarse sea salt
  1. In medium bowl, combine cookie mix, pecans, flour, butter and egg until soft dough forms. Shape into 1 1/2–inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart. Using thumb or handle of wooden spoon, make indentation in center of each cookie.
  2. Bake at 375° F for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool; place cookies on cooling racks. Cool completely.
  3. In small microwaveable bowl, microwave caramels and half and half uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring once, until caramels are melted. Spoon 1 teaspoon caramel into indentation of each cookie. Cool 15 minutes.
  4. Drizzle with melted dark chocolate and white baking chips. Sprinkle with salt. Let stand 15 minutes or until chocolate is set. Makes 3 dozen cookies

Next, enjoy cheesecake as an easy bar together with gooey caramel, rich toffee and crunchy nuts.

Praline Crumb Caramel Cheesecake Bars

Cookie Base and Topping
1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2
cup cold butter or margarine
1/2
cup chopped pecans
1/2
cup toffee bits
Filling
2
packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1/2
cup sugar
2
tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2
cup caramel topping
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
egg
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. Place cookie mix in bowl; cut in butter using pastry blender or fork until mixture is crumbly. Reserve 1 1/2 cups mixture for topping. Press remaining mixture in bottom of pan. Bake 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, flour, 1/4 cup of the caramel topping, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  3. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over partially baked cookie base. Sprinkle with reserved crumb topping, pecans and toffee bits.
  4. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup caramel topping. For bars, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator. Makes 36 bars

Have A Very, Merry Christmas,

Phil
