These tempting treats take advantage of store-bought oatmeal cookies, ice cream and peanut butter. You can roll them in crushed candy bars or nuts for an even fancier look. Just pop them in the freezer when you're eating.—Melissa Stevens, Elk River, Minnesota
Who wouldn't like a treat that combines the best of chocolate chip, oatmeal and peanut butter cookies--all in one? That's just what you get in Out-on-the-Range Cookies from Sharon Weaver of Orlando, Florida. "I bake these cookies for our two nephews when they make their annual trip to visit us," she explains. "They love them. The problem is that the recipe has far too much fat and sugar in it, so we only make it for this one visit--never just for us. I would love a makeover version of this recipe."
When I want chocolate chip cookies, I bake this variation, which is full of other goodies, such as candy and peanuts. The cookies are crisp on the outside and moist and tender in the middle. —Clara Coulson Minney, Washington Court House, Ohio
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.
Rich, buttery cookies become more delightful still topped with peanut butter cups and candy. They are cute for spring, but I've used appropriately colored decorations to match occasions at any time of the year.
