Q&A: Please help me with this recipe :( . Oatmeal cookies? 10 Points, I always remember.?

Question by London: Please help me with this recipe :( . Oatmeal cookies? 10 Points, I always remember.?
Okay, so a few months ago I found this recipe for Grandma McCanns (I don’t know how to spell it) Irish cookies with a pot of chocolate or something. I said I would make it the first day of snow and now its snowing and I can’t find my recipe and I WANT IT! I found it in some cook book in the library, but I can’t remember the name and I can’t find it anymore, so if you know a recipe for Grandma McCanns Oatmeal Cookies with a bowl of fudge (i forget what it was called, some sort of chocolate thingy…) I would love you and I always remember to give best answer for 10 points :) . Thanks in advance!

My deepest sympathies to you and your family. But what a wonderful memory to your grandmother. This was my grandmothers recipe, maybe it is close.

1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup molasses
1 egg
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Sugar

Combine butter, brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, salt and cloves. Beat until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (1 to 2 hours).

Heat oven to 375° F. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls with glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until set.

Q&A: why are white chocolate chip cookies always made with macadamia nuts?

Question by Jeremy C: why are white chocolate chip cookies always made with macadamia nuts?
i’m addicted to chocolate (and yes, i consider white chocolate to be chocolate, but that’s another debate), and i’m not the biggest fan of nuts in general. but everwhere i go, there are chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips, but no plain white chocolate chip cookies without macadamia nuts. is it illegal? do the nuts offset a poisonous reaction with the white chocolate chips that i’m not aware of? are they substituting pricey white chocolate chips with cheap macadamia nuts and hoping that people won’t notice? i’m going crazy here…
y’all seem to assume i can actually operate an oven :-)

I think because it has become common place and people like them. Buy your own white chocolate chips and make plain ones. Somae bakeries will do special orders for you too.

Why do peanut butter cookies almost always have the fork criss-cross pattern on them?

Question by Singin’ with the Swing: Why do peanut butter cookies almost always have the fork criss-cross pattern on them?
I’ve always wondered why people fork this pattern into the top of peanut butter cookies, but no other kind of cookie.

What do you think?

Answer by April H
The cookie dough is placed as balls on the cookie sheet, then “forked” to flatten them. It’s tradition for the marks to be there and a sign of “homemade” cookies.
