    Cookies

    Every holiday I am stuck for good gift ideas for acquaintances and co-workers- people that I associate with but are not that close to. Each year it seems I am spending a small fortune on trinkets items which are basically useless dust collectors. This year I decided to bake little trays of cookies. I would like to know if anyone could share some relatively easy cookie recipes so that I can make a variety of cookies and present them as gifts. Any help here, as I am not Julia Child in the kitchen and can use all the help I can get.

    Girl Scout Mint Cookies


    1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix
    2 Eggs
    2 Tbl. Water
    2 Tbl. Cooking Oil
    1/2 Cup Cocoa
    1 pkg. Chocolate Chips
    2-3 drops Wilton's Candy Mint Flavoring

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine cake mix, eggs, water, cooking oil,
    and cocoa. You will need to blend this together well, this will be a
    very sticky mess. Let stand for 20 minutes, and then shape into very
    small 1/2 inch balls. Place these balls on a cookie sheet 2 inches a part,
    and smash down flat. You will need to spray a large spoon with Pam to
    make them flat. Bake for about 8 minutes. Let cool until they reach
    room temperature.

    Heat chocolate chips in either the microwave, or in a double boiler.
    When completely melted add a couple drops of the mint flavoring.
    Be carefull not to add too much, it is a powerfull flavoring.
    You can either spread the melted chocolate on the cookies,
    or you can dip the cookies into the chocolate.

    Pecan Sandies


    1 1/2 c Vegetable shortening
    3/4 c Granulated sugar
    1 1/2 ts Salt
    2 Eggs
    4 c All purpose flour
    1/4 ts Baking soda
    2 tb Water
    1 c Shelled pecans


    1 Preheat the oven to 325~F
    2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, sugar, and salt
    with an electric mixer on medium speed.
    3. Add the eggs and beat well.
    4. While mixing, slowly add the flour, baking soda, and water.
    5. Chop the pecans into very small bits using a food processor or
    blender on low speed. Be careful not to overchop; you don't want
    to make pecan dust. The pieces should be about the size of rice grains.
    6. Add the pecans to the dough and knead with your hands until the pecans
    are well blended into the mixture.
    7. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and press flat with your hands
    onto ungreased baking sheets. The cookies should be about 2 inches
    in diameter and 1/2 inch thick.
    8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are
    golden brown.
