Family Favorites Cookie Recipes
- Big Mama's Teacakes — This favorite
cookie recipe came from a country magazine many years ago.
- Cherry Top Hats
- Delta Bars
— This is
a crisp Norwegian cookie. This recipe belonged to my step-Dad, Leo, a Norwegian,
born and raised in Winona, Minnesota.
- Hello Dolly Bars
- Joe Froggers
— Joe Froggers
were first created by a Marblehead, Massachusetts, character called Uncle Joe,
who lived on the edge of a frog pond. He made the best molasses cookies in town,
and they were called Joe Froggers because they were as large as the lily pads
frogs sat on and as dark as the frogs in the pond.
- Mexican Wedding Cookies
— These Mexican
Wedding Cookies (Russian Tea Cakes) also make an appearance during the holiday
season at our house.
- Peanut Blossoms
— This is
a wonderful recipe from my sister, Kathryn. Since she's from Georgia, it's a
particularly fitting recipe.
- Raspberry Nut Pinwheels
lovers will like these delicious cookies. They're wonderful on cookie trays
- Raspberry Rum Brownies
— If you’re
a raspberry lover, these are for you.
- Rocks — A grand fruit cookie — some like it better
than fruit cake. It is best to use just one-quarter or one-half the recipe,
or it will fill the house!
- Root Beer Date Bars
— These are
my grandson, Brenden's, favorite cookies. They are also the first cookies he
ever helped me make when he was just a little guy!
