Question by moshy_monster: What is the best cookie for a cookie contest?
I have a very very competitive group of friends, and we are having a holiday cookie contest in two weeks. Last year I made great cookies, but still some of my friends managed to outdo me. I don’t want that to happen this year. I would love to hear some of your cookie recipes that could win the prize!
I will let everyone know what one I pick and how it does at the contest!

You can never go wrong with chocolate chip cookies or cranberry oatmeal cookies.

    try stain glass cookies. you make a sugar cookie and use a pattern like a christmas tree or any other holiday cookie cutter shape. cut the middle out but make sure it’s a least a few centimeters in width to avoid it from breaking. crush a bunch of life saver candy and then put the crushed candies in the middle. cook and then you’ll see a stain glass pattern that tastes sweet and sour with the buttery taste of cookie dough. you can probably find a recipe online for the exact times

    Chocolate comfort cookies
    Ingredients
    1 cup unsalted butter, softened
    1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

    2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
    2 tablespoons milk
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup Dutch process cocoa or regular cocoa
    1 cup marshmallow cream
    1 cup chopped pecans
    1 (11-ounce) package semisweet chocolate mega-morsels or white chocolate morsels (2 cups)
    1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries (we tested with Craisins)
    Preparation
    Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add egg, beating well. Add melted chocolate, milk, and vanilla; beat well.

    Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in marshmallow cream and remaining ingredients, mixing well.

    Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 325° for 13 minutes or until done. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks and cool completely.

    Since these are very sweet, you might want to try a batch substituting a teaspoon of brewed coffee for the vanilla to cut the sweetness.
