Cookie Swap Recipes

Wondering if anyone has tried any simple cookie recipes, can be old or new recipes that you've tried and loved. I'm not a great baker so simple is the key, no rolling dough, no cookie press (don't own one), just good and easy. I need to make 10 dozen of them. Also, no traditional chocolate chips. I know, I'm pretty demanding.

This snickerdoodle demonstration looks very easy:

What I make myself are molasses sugar cookies. I thought I posted the recipe before but apparently not. The recipe I have is the same as this one on except I up the molasses from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup:

I love snickerdoodles!! Make several batches every Christmas and hand them out as presents.

Cowgirl, those are my husband's favorite holiday cookie. They are really simple and so delicious. Bessie, they do require you to roll the dough into balls, and then roll them again in powdered sugar, but otherwise they are really easy.

I make these garam masala cookies every holiday season. They are spicy and warm like gingerbread but have a real unique taste to them. I bought my garam masala mix at a street fair but you can get it at Shoprite:

After all this, I think I’m going to go with macaroons. I’m intrigued by the ones with garam masala in them. I may have to try them. When looking into the spice, it says there are different types of it. Some had garlic, bay leaves, more of a savory. Then there was one that was more spicy. Honestyseasy..any advice on what i should be looking for in the ingredients.

Bessie - for cookies mixes with cardamom, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Something with fennel or licorice is OK, but be aware of that. Most blends with ginger are OK in a cookie, but a garlic or bayleaf isn't going to work so well. And at least for me personally I like cumin with meats, but not cookies.

If you'd like I be happy to give you some. I do my share of Indian cooking.

Pumpkin Spice Cookie is easy.

1 18oz. pkg. spice cake mix
1 15oz can pumpkin

Grease baking sheet. Mix ingredients until well blended. Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet.
Bake 18-20 min. Allow to cool on baking sheet 5 minutes before removing.

** can add 1 cup chocolate chips to batter.
