Cookies just seem to go with the weather. Also, school time is a great time to bake cookies. I’m going to the kitchen and make some great cookies. These recipes are from “A Taste Of Heaven” cookbook from the New Hope United Methodist Women in Rutherfordton. I’m going to start with ADAM COOPER’S recipe for COWBOY COOKIES. One of my grand daughters calls them “Giddyup” cookies.

1/2 cup Crisco
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup nuts or raisins (I use 1/2 cup each sometimes)
1 package chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together in order given. Drop by scant teaspoons on cookie sheet. Bake at 350º for 12 minutes.

The next cookie I’m going to make is one of my favorites. I sometimes make them extra, extra large so I can make some great ice cream sandwiches with them. . . talk about good . . . super yum! Here is ANNIE BELL GILBERT’S  special recipe for PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES!

1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup peanut butter
3 cup plain flour
2 teaspoon salt
Cream together shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy; stir in peanut butter. Sift together dry ingredients; then stir into creamed mixture. Form dough into small balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2” apart. Flatten each ball with a fork. Bake at 350º for about 10 minutes. Cool slightly, then remove from pan.  Makes about 6 dozen cookies.

You just can’t beat a good OATMEAL-RAISIN COOKIE. Thanks to JANICE JOLLEY here is another great cookie recipe.
These never last very long. You just can’t stop with two.

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine, softened (I always use butter)
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg
3 cups Oatmeal Raisin Crisp cereal
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour]
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400º. Mix brown sugar, butter, vanilla and egg in a large bowl; stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until light brown, 8-10 minutes. Makes 3 dozen cookies.

Great cookies - and from the kitchen we show the love. You know, there is nothing like a homemade cookies. So, now you know what to do. Get in the kitchen and show the yum! See you next week.
