French Vanilla Cookie Sticks make a fancy meal finale that couldn’t be quicker to whip up. Start with purchased Pirouette cookies, dip in a rich creamy chocolate and peanut-butter coating, dust with nuts or sprinkles, serve with your favorite after-dinner beverage. You’ll have time left over to savor your evening together.
I first made these rich and tender cookies as a teenager and now make them for my husband and our two sons. The smiles on their faces are well worth the time and effort. —Michele Fenner, Girard, Pennsylvania
Cookies that melt in your mouth and are practically fat-free...is it any wonder Jo Ann Blomquest's crispy meringue morsels disappear as fast as she can whip them up? "Friends and family love them," she relates from Freeport, Illinois.
These old-fashioned mildly sweet cookies are dotted with walnuts and raisins. We like them soft right from the oven. Later, they crisp up and are perfect for dunking.—Denise and George Hymel, Gramercy, Louisiana
