THESE COOKIES earned me a first-place ribbon at the county fair. They remain my husband's favorites—whenever I make them to give away, he always asks me where his batch is!
I especially like the fact that the recipe makes a small enough batch for the two of us to nibble on. —Penny Ann Habeck
With their yummy raspberry centers, these chewy cookies will disappear from your picnic table fast. My mother used to make these, and they were always my favorite. Now my family enjoys them, too. Store the cooled cookies in a sealed container to keep them soft. —Cheryl Giroux, Amherstburg, Ontario
My daughter works at a summer camp, so I send treats. Instead of a cookie jar we use a coffee can and call it the Wrangler Feeding Trough. Everyone asks for this cookie. —Sue Klemm, Rhinelander, Wisconsin
My family loves this recipe! It’s great with that morning cup of coffee, delicious as an afternoon snack or after-dinner dessert. Citrusy and crunchy, not too sweet, it always hits the spot. —Diana Burrink, Crete, Illinois
Flora Alers of Clinton, Maryland transforms a boxed white cake mix into a big batch of tasty cookies that are filled with coconut, nuts and chocolate chips. "This recipe requires just six ingredients, so you can mix up the batter in a jiffy," she shares.
When our family gathered at my aunt's summer home on Mackinac Island a few years back, she pulled out her tried-and-true recipe and made these wholesome cookies. I think of her and that memorable vacation every time I make these for my own family.
Here is a delicious twist on traditional chocolate chip cookies. They're great for coconut lovers, textured by the coconut and flavored by the extract...a compatible combination that results in a crispy, chewy cookie. My whole family agrees this recipe is a winner.
