Save money by making your own thrift friendly gourmet
cookies. To make gourmet cookies, use real butter, and make them larger.
Depending on the type of cookie, give them a little extra flavor by flattening
them in a fork dipped in sugar and other sweet spices. You can also add
other ingredients like cut up candy and nuts.
Here are a couple special cookie recipes.
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup Butterfinger candy bar, cut into small
1/2 tsp vanilla
Sift together the dry ingredients. Cream the butter and
sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and continue beating.
Stir in Butterfinger pieces, and the flour mixture. Add
vanilla and mix well.
Drop by teaspoons onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at
350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until done.
1 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla flavoring
2 1/4 cups sifted flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Beat the butter, 1/4 cup of the sugar, salt and vanilla until fluffy. Slowly
beat in the flour, and then stir in the pecans.
Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 15 minutes or until edges are lightly
When cool, roll in the remaining sugar until heavily coated.
