    Default PING: sf & Picky - Requested Cookie Recipes


    I can't find the original threads, but I believe it was Picky that asked
    me to post the Raspberry Almond Thumbprint Cookie recipe, and sf wanted
    the one using Rice Krispies, oatmeal and coconut? Sorry it took me so
    long to post this, but have been trying to lay my finger on the exact
    recipe for sf. I don't have it on the computer, but did find one that
    sounds very similar to what I made. I did find another with all three of
    the ingredients, but they also had 1/2 cup chopped nuts in them, and
    another had 1 cup chocolate chips, which could add either ingredients to
    this recipe. One of my most favorite recipes is a cookie I make with
    coconut and oatmeal, but no Rice Krispies. I could eat the whole batch
    myself!

    Crispie Cookies

    1 cup butter
    1 cup cooking oil (I use Canola)
    1 cup light brown sugar, packed
    1 cup granulated sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla
    3-1/2 cups flour
    1 tsp. salt (I would cut in half)
    1 cup Rice Krispies
    1 cup quick-cooking oats
    1 cup flaked coconut

    Cream butter, oil, sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and beat in well. Add
    rest of ingredients, mixing well. Roll in balls and then in additional
    granulated sugar; press with a fork on cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for
    about 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Not sure how many it makes, but I'm thinking it will make a big batch?
    I have the recipe laid out and plan to make them this week, but we still
    have some banana bars with a fresh orange glaze on them, and also some
    pastel (spring special) M&M Cookies, that I made for the family
    yesterday. Those banana bars are delicious!

    Picky, here is the Raspberry Thumbprint Cookie that I make and our whole
    family loves them and always requests them for the holidays, but make
    them during the year too.

    Raspberry Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

    2/3 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup butter
    1/2 tsp. pure almond extract
    2 cups flour
    1/2 cup raspberry jam

    Glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar
    1-1/2 tsp. almond extract
    2 to 3 tsp. water

    In mixer bowl combine sugar, butter and 1/2 tsp. almond extract. Beat at
    medium speed until creamy. Add flour and beat just till blended on low
    speed.
    Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2" apart on cookie sheets. With
    thumb, make indention in center of each cookie. Fill each indention with
    about 1/4 tsp. jam
    Bake at 350 for about 14 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.
    Let stand 1 minute; remove from sheets. Cool 10 minutes and then drizzle
    with glaze while still slightly warm. Cool completely before storing. I
    put in a oblong (9 x 13 inch size) Tupperware container, which I think
    is their cold cut keeper? Put waxed paper, or plastic wrap between
    layers. Makes about 3-1/2 dozen.

    For glaze, in a small bowl stir together the powdered sugar, 1-1/2 tsp.
    almond extract and enough water to make a thin glaze. Drizzle over the
    cookies in thin lines, using a small spoon. Don't store until glaze is
    set.
    NOTE: Could use any flavor of jam, but I only use raspberry, as that is
    our favorite.

    Yes, that's the one I asked for - thanks so much Judy! I will try
    substituting some other type of flour for wheat... because I'm always
    looking for something I can serve to my wheat intolerant DIL.

    Does that one have wheat flour in it too? Yesterday, I made the
    cookie recipe with oatmeal and coconut that George M posted last week.
    It called for nuts, which I used, and I and added chocolate chips. I
    made half the recipe and halved the dough to modify each half. One of
    the halves was coconut free because my son in law doesn't like coconut
    (which I think is weird). He's not allergic, just doesn't like it.
    The other half got twice the amount of coconut, because I love it.

    After halving the recipe I mentioned above, I still ended up with 30
    cookies - so your recipe will make a minimum of 60 (using tablespoon
    measures or a 1 inch scoop)... probably more like 75+.

    Did you ever post a recipe for those banana bars? Maybe I would have
    better luck with banana bar cookies than I do making banana bread out
    of over ripe bananas. I am the world's worst banana bread maker. I
    can take no fail recipes that non-cooks use to make scrumptious banana
    bread and always end up with a layer of banana at the bottom. I just
    can't do it.

    I am sending this recipe to a FB friend who is a former poster to RFC.
    She was asking about Thumbprint cookie recipes just a few days ago and
    would probably love to get this one. Thanks again!

    There are a couple people in our family that doesn't care for coconut
    either, and hubby and i really like it a lot.

    Yes, my recipe for the oatmeal-coconut cookies does call for all-purpose
    flour (sifted & bleached) which of course would be made with wheat, and
    that's usually all I ever use, except cake flour for certain things that
    call for it, and make pancakes sometimes with half whole wheat flour and
    half white, so most always have a bag of the wheat on hand.

    I don't have trouble with making banana bread, so not sure what the
    problem might be. Have you tried just making them into cupcakes instead
    of making a loaf size? The grandkids like them in the smaller muffin
    size.

    Banana-Orange Bars

    2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 med.)
    1-2/3 cups granulated sugar
    1 cup canola oil
    4 eggs
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. salt (I cut in half)
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    I also added 1 tsp. vanilla

    In large bowl, beat bananas, sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla (if using)
    with large spoon until thoroughly mixed. In smaller second bowl, combine
    flour, soda, salt and baking powder and add gradually (I just dumped it
    in all at once) to the wet mixture, stirring until well mixed together.
    Pour into a greased 15 x 10 inch (jelly roll size) baking pan. Bake at
    350 for 20 to 25 minutes, until toothpick inserted near the center,
    comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack and frost.

    Orange Frosting: 5 tbsp. butter
    4-1/2 cups powdered sugar
    5 tbsp. fresh orange juice
    1/2 tsp. grated orange rind (I used about 1 tbsp.)

    Beat together until fluffy and spread over cooled bars.
    NOTE: I didn't use all of the frosting, as my hubby and one son doesn't
    care for thick frosting, so I just used enough of it to make a thin
    covering...more like a glaze, and the orange flavor really compliments
    the banana bars. I'm thinking these would freeze well too? They are very
    moist and would probably keep well stored in the refrigerator, if
    covered, but they are disappearing fast around here!

    Judy, thank you for posting the cookie recipe I asked about, and those
    Banana-Orange Bars sound very good as well. Both recipes are now
    copied for later bakes!

    By wheat, I meant the grain itself - not whole wheat. DIL has a
    gluten intolerance, so I look for wheat free dessert recipes and if
    they aren't, I try to see how I can change them to be wheat free or at
    least lower gluten content. She's not a celiac; so if she likes it
    enough (like my pizza) she'll eat a little and damn the consequences.

    To be honest, baking it in cupcake cups never even crossed my mind! I
    could cut the recipe in half that way. Thanks!

    Thank you SO much! I'm giving that recipe a try soon.

    I've begun making a number of things in cupcake form - carrot cake, of
    course, but also meatloaf. It bakes quickly, makes nice neat servings,
    and is easy to freeze for later use.
