« on: 23 Dec 2015, 02:41:48 »
As the holidays are on us everyone throws their parties, and family comes over la de da de da. I've been doing some baking and thought i might share some of the cookies that I've been baking for anyone who's brave enough to try it on their own(assuming i give clear enough instructions) . Feel free to share your own recipes and maybe ill try them.

Squish Cookies (My Favorite)

Ingredients:
- 1 6 ounce bag of chocolate chips
- 2 cups of flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking soda
- 2/3 cup of soft butter/margarine
-1/4 cup of light corn syrup
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2 boxes of thin mints (not girl scout cookies)

Instructions:
-Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave
-Mix in the flour, baking soda, butter, corn syrup, egg, and sugar
-Make sure everything is well combined (i use my hands for this part)
-Either cover the bowl its in and put in in the fridge for 2 hours, or move it to parchment paper and put in in the fridge for 2 hours
-Make 3/4 inch balls (i used rounded half teaspoons)
-Roll in sugar, do not flatten
-Bake at 350 for 10-12 min on an ungreased cookie tray
-Place on cookie sheet while still warm, match cookies with another one about the same size and flip one half over (this will be the bottom)
-Place 1 thin mint on each of the overturned half, cover with the other half and let sit for 30 sec-1 min
-Gently squish down on the top so the two halves stick, and let cool
-Enjoy

Snowball Cookies

-3/4 cup of powdered sugar

Instructions:
-Beat butter, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in a large mixing bowl until creamy
-Gradually beat in four
