    No, it's a real recipe. You'd have to be a real PSYCHO to bake it, though.

    I just made the Amish Puff cookies this evening and they are very yummy. I didn't roll them in sugar and cinnamon though. My mom had a recipe similar to this that we had lost in the fire and I'm so happy to have found this one. The dough is sort of crumbly before you cook it so you really have to roll it into balls with your hands (well anyways I did). I also used a regular mixer instead of a stand mixer. Turned out fine.

    1 cup peanut butter
    Melt first 3 ingredients together in microwave. Add remaining ingredients. Knead like bread dough until you can no longer see the sugar. Roll candy with a glass. Spread into greased pan. Refrigerate until set. Cut and enjoy!
    Um, I'm watching Iron Chef and Paula Deen is one of the challengers right now. It's the Holiday Dessert Battle with the secret ingredient being sugar. She just made Velveeta Fudge Balls. On Iron Chef.

    Chocolate Chip Amish Puff Cookies
    Originally Published In: A Field Guide to Cookies by Anita Chu
    Yield: About 2 dozen cookies
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 cup chocolate chips
    1/4 cup sugar
    4 teaspoons ground cinnamon (Note: I only used one teaspoon in this step)
    Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt into a bowl and set aside.
    In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars on medium speed for several minutes until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix until combined.
    Add the flour mixture, and mix on low speed just until combined.
    Cover dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Stir in the chocolate chips.
    Combine cinnamon and sugar in a bowl.
    Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line several cookies sheets with parchment paper (Note: I use silpats).
    Roll tablespoon-sized balls of dough in the cinnamon sugar and place on cookie sheets about 3 inches apart.
    Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through, until golden brown. Cool cookie sheets on wire racks.

    Super necro, I know, but this cookie recipe is amazing. I made 1 batch 2 weeks ago and they were gone in 2 days, made 2 batches this week for my coworkers and they are begging me to bring them again already.

    For those of you time or baking challenged:
    Get a roll of Pillsbury sugar cookies.
    Roll in red or green sprinkles.
    Press whole roll in to a bell shape-kind of flat on one bottom,narrow at the top. Slice & bake. No one guesses they are not homemade and you DID bake them!

    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon brandy
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    3/4 cup white chocolate chips
    1 cup dried cranberries


    Directions
    -Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

    -In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and brandy.

    -Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture.

    -Mix in the white chocolate chips and cranberries.

    -Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.

    -Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. For best results, take them out while they are still doughy. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
    I mentioned I was bringing some cookies to people and strangely enough, this one guy randomly said, "Are you going to bring white chocolate cranberry cookies?" I was like, I don't think I have a recipe for those...? But I guess I do now! lol Those sound really good!

    1 cup finely chopped nuts
    1/2 cup corn syrup
    1/2 cup shortening
    2/3 cup brown sugar

    Heat oven to 375. Blend flour and nuts. Bring corn syrup, shortening, and sugar to boil in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; gradually stir in flour and nuts. Drop by level teaspoonsful about 3″ apart on greased baking sheet. Bake 5 to 6 minutes; remove from oven and ALLOW TO STAND 5 min BEFORE removing from baking sheet. If you decide to roll them(and I hope you do!) after they sit for barely a minute,flip over spoon handle. If they get too cool,put back in oven for just a minute or two.Makes about 4 doz. cookies. Elegant and tasty-perfect Christmas cookie. Also great for gifts in a pretty tin,lined with paper doilies. I usually make these using 2 big cookie sheets.

    Note- no closer than 3 inches apart-really!
    My mom loves these. If I had seen this earlier, I would have tried your recipe, because the one I had isn't that great and I forgot to look for other lace cookie recipes this year. I think my baking is done though.

    I have to type up some recipes later, I'll come back and add one to this thread.

    I can promise that one is to die for. My Aunts (all Southern cooks) do not put up with almost good. They would trash it in a heartbeat and start over!

    Cracker brittle (or toffee bars as I call them)

    1cup Brown Sugar
    1cup butter
    26 pieces of graham crackers with sides touching on a cookie pan

    Melt/Stir butter and sugar until completely melted and mixed. Pour over crackers and bake 6-8 mins or until lightly browned and bubbly.

    Optional:
    Sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. You can basically top with anything ie: chopped candy canes

    I spread melted chocolate around and top with both nuts and skor bits to make them resemble toffee bars.

    In case anyone besides me likes fruitcake . . .

    Fruitcake Christmas Cookies

    1.5 lbs candied cherries, halved
    1 lb candied pineapple
    1 qt chopped pecans
    2.5 cups all-purpose flour
    5 eggs
    2 sticks butter
    1 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons grape juice
    1/2 tablespoon cloves
    1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
    1/2 tablespoon all spice
    1/8 teaspoon ginger
    1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

    Beat the sugar and butter until fluffy, and then add the eggs one at a time. Beat it all well. Sift the flour, but reserve 1/2 cup for later. Add the spices to the two cups of sifted flour and add it to the sugar/butter/egg mixture and beat well. Add the grape juice. Stir the 1/2 cup reserved flour into the cherries, pineapple, and pecans, and then fold into the mixture. Drop by spoonfulls onto cookie sheet and bake at 275 degrees. Watch them carefully and take them out when the edges begin to slightly brown. This should take maybe around 10 minutes, possibly a few minutes less or more depending on your oven, but watch them. Don't overbake!

    ^^It's funny because I remember having fruitcake when I was growing up and it was delicious. Someone in my family made homemade fruitcake and it didn't taste like that vile stuff in the stores.

    Can I change some fruit in your recipe? I don't like grape juice and cinnamon and i wonder that is it ok if i put orange juice without cinnamon?

    I'm actually having a piece of homemade fruitcake right now - not the cookies - that's delicious. It's heavy on the booze and you can smell the rum wafting off of it.

    late to the party... My SIL made this for Christmas, very easy.

    1 roll of Pilsbury sugar cookie dough rolled flat on a baking sheet
    Spoon raspberry jam onto cookie dough
    Cook according to sugar cookie directions

    When cool drizzle white chocolate on top.

    It was yummy on it's own and then someone put some of my sister's cheesecake on it and WHOA! Next holiday they're getting together to make it with the cheesecake on the cookie dough.
