Stirriing the Pot with a Cookie Recipe Exchange
1 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup sugar
1 Cup Land O Lakes Butter, softened
2 teaspons imitation maple flavor
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats (I use old-fashioned)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 Cups chopped walnuts
60 large walnut pieces (enough for one large walnut piece on each cookie)
Heat oven to 350. Combine brown sugar, sugar, and butter in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (2 to 3 minutes). Add eggs, maple flavor, and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Reduce speed to low, add flour, oats, and baking soda. Beat until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Stir in 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts by hand.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I use parchment paper). Press walnut piece onto top of each cookie. (Don't skip this step.) Bake for 9 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
The Snickerdoodle recipe comes from an older Betty Crocker cookbook. If anyone is interested in it, I'll be happy to post it too.
We'd love for you to post your favorite recipe and link up in the First Annual Cookie Recipe Exchange. How you ask? It's super easy. Just hop on over to Sara's and link up. Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting. Please let me know if you try these and if they were a hit.
Peace and Joy,
