COOKIES ROUNDUP

Did you know October is National Cookie Month?  Oh, How I love Cookies.  I bet you will smile when you give or get a cookie. 

If you eat a homemade cookie or give someone a cookie, it just makes you smile.  Since October is National Cookie Month, I had to add a Cookie Roundup.  My kids range in age from 12 to 23 and still love to bake with me, especially my special needs son, Caleb.  I started baking with him before he could even walk.  When we bake a batch to hand out to others, we called them Caleb’s Comfort Cookies.  He brings a smile to everyone who receives one.  Caleb helps me bake every batch of cookies I make and still loves it.

My other kids enjoy helping me bake, but mainly to sneak the cookie dough into their mouths when I am not looking.  They do not have a chance to sneak cookie dough when Caleb is with me.  He catches them every time.  It is a game the others play with Caleb to see if they can sneak some dough.  Anyway, we all have a lot of fun baking.  Be sure to check out my post below on The Best Way to Freeze Cookie Dough.

Baking Cookie Tips

  • Use butter and eggs at room temperature.  You should be able to leave a finger print easily in the butter.
  • Whip the butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Do not over mix the flour!
  • Mix in the dry ingredients just until you do not any powder and everything is incorporated.
  • Use parchment paper – I love parchment paper when baking.  Once you remove them from the oven, just slide the parchment paper off the baking sheet.  This will allow them to cool.
  • Use an ice cream scoop when scooping them out.  This way they will all be the same size and will bake evenly.
  • Freezing Cookie Dough – Scoop them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  You can put the cookies closer together on the baking sheet when freezing them than when you are baking them.  If you scoop the cookie dough out first and then freeze it, you do not have a problem with the dough being as hard as a rock, and you cannot scoop it out of a container.  After scooping out the cookie dough, place the baking pan in the freezer until they are frozen.  Place frozen cookies into large freezer zip lock bags and store in the freezer.  When frozen, they do not spread out as much.
  • Do not over cook your cookies.  Once you remove them from the oven, they will continue to bake.

  5. Thanks for sharing the Nutter Butter Acorn Treats post from my blog. I cannot take credit for it — one of my lovely guest writers did it — but it sure is a great recipe!

  6. Cookies are seriously one of my more favorite things to eat and make, too. So, definitely was in 7th heaven looking at all above. I can’t decide which I would like to make first by the way! Thanks, Diane 🙂

    • Janine,

      I truly appreciate you stopping by this morning and checking out these cookies. I found some amazing cookies I am going to try soon. I agree they all look really good. I think I will try a breakfast cookie. I love the thought of eating cookies for breakfast and how fast and convenient.

      Blessings,
