No - these are the same color, but with sugar crystals on top. They're also a lot thinner. But thanks - I WILL try a recipe for those!!!

Real Simple's basic sugar cookie dough recipe. It works for cutouts of any kind/season, jam thumbprints, pecan logs, twists, sandwich cookies with various fillings, dipped wafer cookies, glazed, pinwheels, etc. Very versatile, easy dough to work with. I hated doing cutouts until I started using this dough recipe.

I also like the basic Tollhouse recipe with the addition of more salt, which gives them an almost salted caramel quality.

My grandma makes traditional Italian anginetti, the little soft dough "knot" cookies that are traditionally iced with either a lemon or an anise glaze. They are great, but I've never made them. My grandma's not Italian, but all the other grandmas in her neighborhood are, and they have baked together for years.

My mom told me how to make them, but Lemon Whippersnappers Recipe - Allrecipes.com is almost the same. Do NOT get the cake mix with pudding in it or it won't turn out right.

Are they really crunchy like ginger snaps? I used to buy those to make chocolate pie crust (like graham cracker pie crust) for grasshopper pie.

No - they're more chewy. I've tried to make them "crispy" but they just end up burned. Then I realized it's because of the cake mix. Well, at least that's all I could think of.


With cookies where I control the ingredients, I can make them chewy or crispy.

my go-to is a modified version of the oatmeal cookies from Joy of Cooking. For some reason, their version had milk and baking powder; I've streamlined it a bit, and switched to whole wheat flour and all brown sugar as well. For the nuts and chips, I use whatever I've got on hand

Whole-Grain Oatmeal Cookies
Cream 2 sticks butter
beat in 2 cups brown sugar
beat in 2 eggs, 1 at a time, and
2 tsp vanilla.

In a separate bowl (I use a 4-cup measuring cup), combine
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

Mix dry ingredients into wet, then mix in
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup walnuts (or mac nuts, or almonds...)
1 cup chocolate chips (or raisins, or chopped dates)

Have husband bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes.

I've been substituting 1/2 whole wheat in the old Quaker recipe. I honestly can't tell the difference. I'll try your recipe next time. First I have to make it to the store to buy more oats.

I like the Toll House recipe for chocolate chip cookies but my most prized cookie recipe is my grandma's recipe for oatmeal cookies. It dates back to the 1800s and makes a gazillion. Doesn't matter - they never last long.
Will you share grandma's recipe?
