2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt

2 T. sugar
2 T. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 F

(edited to fix to say 'salt' instead of 'sugar')


I was going to post my snickerdoodle recipe, since I've never found a better one than mine.  Lo and behold, when I compared it to yours, it's exactly the same!  Must have gotten it from the same cookbook - mine came from my mother, who I think got it from Better Homes and Gardens, but I'm not sure, since it's written on one of her recipe cards.

Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies (modified from Martha Stewart's recipe)

1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups finely grated carrots, (about 3 large carrots)
1 cup smashed/ crumbled walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F) and grease some cookie sheets. Beat butter and sugars until fluffy, add eggs and vanilla and beat on medium until well combined.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, allspice and ginger. Gradually add to the egg mixture. Mix in oats, carrots, and nuts. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Drop dough in rounded balls roughly 1/2 oz (I go about 1 inch) 2 inches apart on greased sheets and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden. Transfer to wire rack.

Note: Let them cool on the sheet first for a minute or two to prevent deformation. Because of all the sugar these cookies are a bit sticky when warm, so don't stack them while cooling or you'll end up with a mega-cookie.

Sandwich with cream cheese frosting:

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
optional lemon juice to taste

Cream everything together until well blended.

Perhaps the same could be said of a forum.

CHERRY-COCONUT BARS

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup quartered maraschino cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With hands, mix 1 cup flour, butter, and powdered sugar until smooth. Spread with fingers in a thin layer on the bottom of an ungreased square pan, 8x8x2 inches. Bake about 25 minutes.

Stir the rest of the ingredients into eggs. Spread over the top of hot baked pastry and bake another 25 minutes. Cool. Cut into bars while still slightly warm. Makes 18 bars.

These are very good especially with a hot cup of tea. I have also made these with crasins (dried sweetened cranberries) instead of the cherries. Soak the crasins in a small bowl with apple juice or orange juice for about 5- 10 minutes before adding them.

The Devil's Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 cups sugar
1  15oz can of peanut butter....creamy or crunchy it doesn't matter
1  10-12 oz bag total of any of the following: chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips  (choose one or mix and match or leave them out completely)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Cream sugar and eggs
mix peanut butter in well
add chips

Spoon 1" balls on cookie sheet (this is most easily accomplished with an icedtea spoon, melon baller, or your hands)
Gently press in crisscross with the back of a fork (optional, you may leave them little balls or just gentle press with fingers)
Cook for 12-14 minutes.
Remove from oven
Let stand on cookie sheet 3-5minutes
Twist gently to remove from cookie sheet.
Let cool on rack or plate additional 10 minutes.

Makes  3-4 dozen

Enjoy!   ;D

****there really is no flour in this recipe
****also, if you skip the add-ins and use Skippy's all natural peanut butter, you have a lovely gluten free cookie   ;D
