December 4 is National Cookie Day!
In honor of the decadent holiday, Quiznos is giving out a free toasted cookie with every purchase. But in case you don’t feel like taking a trip to the sandwich shop, here are some recipes for some of America’s favorite cookie flavors, courtesy of Food Network.
1 cup light brown sugar
1 stick butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup uncooked rolled oats
1 cup raisins, soaked for 10 minutes in hot water and drained
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together the brown sugar and butter. Mix in the egg, vanilla and milk. Stir in the flour, baking powder and soda and salt until well combined. Stir in the oats and the raisins. Grease a cookie sheet and drop batter using a spoon. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown
Peanut Butter Cookies:
• 1 package (about 18 ounces) prepared sugar cookie dough
• 1/2 cup peanut butter
• 1/2 mini chocolate chips
• 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
• 1/2 cup peanuts, coarsely chopped
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat together cookie dough and peanut butter in large bowl until blended and smooth. Stir or knead in mini chips, peanut butter chips and peanuts until evenly distributed.
Drop 1 heaping tablespoon of dough for each cookie onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool slightly on baking sheets. Then transfer to wire rack and cool.
