my thread here


In related news, since it's that time of year again, I'm going to a cookie exchange next weekend and was wondering if anyone had some easy-ish recipe recommendations to share. Last year I made fauxkaren's cakemix cookie recipe and they were delicious even if I am pretty sure they were not supposed to be the shape that they were. I might make those again (and try to perfect the shape) BUT I remember getting lots of good suggestions last year so I thought I'd ~open the floor~.

Plz keep in mind I am a total novice baker, and also unemployed so ideally there will be no super obscure expensive ingredients that can only be purchased on a full moon from one specific convenience store on a mountaintop.

(PS: Wow this icon selection I have rn is terrible. How do I adequately express myself in 100x100 images with this? I only have one icon of Rose Tyler? :O)

This isn't so much a cookie recipe, but it sort of is?

1 pkg ring-shaped pretzels
1 pkg m&ms
2 pkgs white chocolate chips

Lay pretzel rings on wax or parchment paper.
Melt white chocolate
Spoon chocolate into rings, then press an m&m in the center.
Let chocolate harden.

DONE.

DELICIOUS. BETTER THAN COOKIES TBH.



YEAH GIANT PICTURE WHAT OF IT KALIIIIII

I'm not sure we have as many pretzel shape varieties as you do tbh.

Hey, a blog I read just had a post about that.

I like her idea of doing slice and bake cookies and then turning them into "side of the cup" cookies. It's kind of cute without requiring lots of extra ingredients. (I have no idea how readily available those cookie cutters are. The World Market ones are a 1.29, but apparently no Canada shipping. "World" Market, yeah right!)

(Also, wow, only one Rose icon, how dare you. ....And I just realized I really need a food icon)

Are these the ones you made? If not, these may be very good with only 4 ingredients. If you try these, I would chill the dough before rolling into a sphere.
