Thanks.
I don't know where I got it but it's: 4 tbs each of butter and cream cheese softened and whipped; add 1 tbs instant espresso (dissolved in a bit of water), 1 tsp vanilla; 1/4 cup cocoa powder; then gradually add 1 1/2 cups sifted powder sugar. I adjusted the powdered sugar up to make it the right consistency for spreading. Doubled, this quantity is enough for about 5 dozen sandwich cookies when the butter cookies are sliced thin, like crisps. I found the dough could take lots of nuts too, and I added something over 2 cups!

I'm working on adapting the cream cheese filling as blueberry and applying lots of lemon zest to the butter cookie, maybe no nuts. Probably have to reduce the blueberry to a syrup and adjust the powdered sugar up to make it not too runny.

REALLY cheap and easy, though for the holidays I might go for the Plugra European butter. Thanks again. Oh, and lots of people just liked the crisps, no filling.

(If I'm ever a grandfather, it'll be my recipe, LOL...but I'll be sure to tell everyone it's your grandmother's...)

Thank you so much. I think my mother added some lemon zest some years if she felt like it -- it depended on her mood. You are welcome to "adopt" this as "your" recipe. Enjoy!

*Plugra Butter is a great treat -- wish I could afford it all of the time!

My favorite cookie is a right-out-of-the-oven homemade pecan chocolate chip cookie, but like others on this thread, I haven't met a cookie I don't like. I also like what we call Snowball Cookies--a type of shortbread cookie made with pecans and butter and rolled in powdered sugar when warm out of the oven. I seldom get store-bought cookies because I prefer to make my own, but I LOVE Pinwheels...a rich chocolate covered marshmallow cookie that I really can't afford, but I do splurge on when I can.

I have the recipe too. But I'm usually too busy or lazy to make them myself. I usually pop in to get a fix whenever I see a Mrs. Field's shop!

As long as there's no fruit or fruit taste (lemon, lime, etc) in it, then I love the cookie.

My favorite is the Double Tree Hotel chocolate chip cookie. Best EVER.

Homemade is best, but generally any chocolate chip cookies,
Chocolate cookies,
Butter cookies.
