    Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
    Makes about 36

    For the cookies:
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    2 squares (2 oz.) unsweetened chocolate
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup butter or shortening
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    For the garnish:
    3/4 cup finely chopped peanuts
    36 miniature Peanut Butter Cups, frozen and unwrapped
    1 cup peanut butter baking chips
    1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine chocolate in bowl and microwave at 50% for about 2 minutes, stir and repeat until smooth and melted. Cool slightly. Combine sugar and butter or shortening in large bowl. Beat at medium speed with electric mixer until blended and crumbly. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then salt and vanilla. Reduce speed to low. Add chocolate slowly. Mix until well blended. Stir in flour and soda with spoon until well blended. Shape dough into 1-1/4 inch balls. Roll in chopped peanuts. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set. Press a frozen peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie immediately upon removing them from the oven. Press cookies up against peanut butter cup if
    desired for appearance, but do not touch the
    peanut butter cup again since it is now melted, it must remain intact. Cool completely. Melt the peanut butter chips and drizzle back and forth over the cookies using a parchment pouch or plastic bag with a little snip off the corner. Repeat with the chocolate, only drizzling at another angle from the peanut drizzle.

    I’m sorry to say this, but the best Christmas COOKIES are the ones you get at the store, and you peel the cookies out of the dough. Those are DELICIOUS, but I forgot the brand, so that doesn’t really help you. The best Christmas TREATS are called Peppermint Bark. Here’s what you need:

    3 Bags of White Chocolate (Tiny bags, the ones that are two-thirds of a foot long)
    12 Candy Canes
    About 3 cookie trays
    It needs to be winter, or you need a REALLY big freezer

    Instructions:
    1. Put the candy canes in a bag and crush them, not to powder, but to tiny chunks.
    2. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl (Microwave or oven or stove, however you do it)
    3. Mix the peppermint chunks into the melted chocolate.
    4. Put the mixture onto the tray (with plastic paper on it)
    5. Spread it around until it fills the tray
    6. Repeat until all chocolate is on a tray
    7. Put the Peppermint Bark outside to freeze, or, put them in your freezer for 10-15 minutes.

    Enjoy!

    Cookies, MMMMM
    My personal recipe::
    1. Get cookie or cake mix
    2. cookie pan & cutter (cutter is optional)
    3. oreo cookies
    4. oven
    5. whisk
    6.depends on how much mix…. sorry but look on the box and see how many eggs you need to use…
    7.frosting (any kind)(optional)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Get the cookie or cake mix and pour it into a medium or large bowl, add the eggs.Mix well. Get the oreo cookies and crush them (if your making alot in a big bowl you might need alot of oreo cookies)put the cookies into a bowl and mix with the whisk. Put the mix inside the cookie pan or sheet. Cook in the oven for about 350-400 degrees and then bake the cookies. When your done get the cookie cutter in any shape most likely trees..chocolate oreo trees… then with any frosting green red purple or whatever make a design like ornaments but this is optional.
    Merry Christmas!

    6 1/4 c. all-purpose flour (or part whole wheat flour)
    2 c. shortening, softened
    1 1/4 c. sugar
    1 egg (or 2 egg whites)
    1/4 c. molasses
    1/4 c. maple or maple-flavor syrup
    2 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp. ground ginger
    1/4 tsp. salt

    Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, and slowly cut in the shortening until crumbs form. Mix all wet ingredients in a bowl until thouroughly blended, then beat into a paste.
    Divide into 3-4 balls, and roll into sheets. Lay each in floured pan, and bake at 350degrees until the top is sticky and the inside is cakey. Cut into 12 bars per batch, or use cookie cutters.

    Makes 3-4 dozen bars, or however many you can get out of cookie cutter shapes.
