    I don't think my spice cookies would work with cutters - they have a lot of butter so they tend to spread out in the oven. They taste good, though! :)

    I have a great cookie recipe. The cookie has coffee in it and it's dipped halfway into melted chocolate. It's good. A bit labor intensive, but good. I'm too tired to post now, but if anyone's interested in it, I'll post it another time.

    I know that this recipe was pretty popular over at Constant Chatter. I never really believed how wonderful they were until I made them a couple of Christmas seasons ago. They were such a hit, I had to make multiple batches! Oh and this recipe does not make much, so I'd double it right from the start!



    White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
    INGREDIENTS:

    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon brandy (you can substitute vanilla)
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    3/4 cup white chocolate chips
    1 cup dried cranberries


    DIRECTIONS:

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
    In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and brandy. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the white chocolate chips and cranberries. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.

    Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. For best results, take them out while they are still doughy. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

    I will definitely try this recipe. About ten years ago, my nephew and I (he's my cooking baking partner) made some really delicious cranberry cookies. I didn't save the recipe and we've been trying to find/recreate it ever since.

    Typing this, I got to thinking that my cooking baking partner has a wife now. I remember making Christmas cookies when he was too little to see over the counter.

    I'd like this one, thanks!
    In its purest form, a newspaper consists of a collection of facts which, in controlled circumstances, can actively improve knowledge. Unfortunately, facts are expensive, so to save costs and drive up sales, unscrupulous dealers often "cut" the basic contents with cheaper material, such as wild opinion, bullshit, empty hysteria, reheated press releases, advertorial padding and photographs of Lady Gaga with her bum hanging out.

    Cappuccino Flats

    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1/2 cup shortening
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1 Tbsp instant coffee granules
    1 tsp warm water
    1 egg
    2 squares (1 oz each) unsweeted chocolate, melted and cooled
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp salt
    1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    3 Tbsp shortening.

    In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugars. Dissove coffee in water; add to creamed mixture with egg and melted chocolate. Mix well. Combine flour, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture (dough will be sticky). Shape into two 6-1/2 inch rolls; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for four hours or until firm. Unwrap and cut into 1/4" slices. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool. IN a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips and shortening. Dip each cookie halfway; shake off excess. Place on waxed paper to harden. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.


    Like I said, these are a bit labor intensive, but they're really good. At least I thought so. Stanny had the ones I made, so you can ask her what she thought, too.
