After sampling these tender cookies in a specialty store, I knew I had to duplicate them. My version has lots of toffee bits and butterscotch chips. I give away dozens as home-baked gifts. —Sandra McKenzie, Braham, MN
From the name, it shouldn't surprise you that this cookie recipe came from a 4-H student of my husband's (we're both teachers)! I like the fact it makes a big batch. And, at the holidays, you can use red and green M&M's to give them a festive look.
I love to bake...in fact, my first try at baking "from scratch" is still vivid in my memory. I make a cake for Mom for Mother's Day—and forgot to put in the baking powder! This recipe brings back memories, too—when our two girls were young they often took these cookies to their Scout outings.
It was always a treat when Mom let me help her make these cookies. Nowadays, I always double the recipe because they disappear so fast. The marshmallow is a nice surprise under the sweet frosting. —Lynell Renner, Zap, North Dakota
These rich, fudgy cookies from Trisha Kruse in Eagle, Idaho are chewy and studded with tangy dried cherries. “It’s a good thing the recipe makes only a small batch,” she laughs, “because we eat them all in one night!”
These cookies are fun to make anytime of year. My family enjoys them because they're not as rich as many other sweets. The recipe can easily be doubled...I like to make one batch dipped in milk chocolate and another in white chocolate.
