My husband and two sons try other chocolate chip cookies and tell me there's no comparison with mine. And my husband doesn't even like chocolate! These cookies are nice and crisp, but be sure to not overbake them. —Cindy Utter, Jacksonville, Illinois
When my daughter, Katie, was 2, the juicy, ripe raspberries in my backyard inspired me to create this cutout cookie. It's become a mother-daughter tradition to pick the raspberries, choose the cutter shapes, cut out the cookies and frost them. We treasure the hours we’ve shared in the kitchen creating not only delightful cookies, but lasting memories.—Cindy Beberman, Orland Park, Illinois
Jackie Ruckwardt of Cottage Grove, Oregon writes, "These gourmet cookies are my 'most asked for' recipe." Chockfull of coconut and chocolate chips and dipped in white candy coating, they are truly a chocolate-lover's delight.
This recipe came about by accident when I was making both my husband's favorite peanut butter cookies and my favorite chocolate cookies. I had two small portions of dough left over and decided to combine them into one flavor-filled cookie.
Crazy about chocolate chips? This chewy cookie has plenty, not to mention lots of heart-healthy oatmeal. The gang’ll come back for more and more... so this big batch is perfect. —Diane Neth, Menno, South Dakota
