Cookies for a Month?!?!

Did you know October was National Cookie Month? I didn't until I went over to Multiples and More and read their question of the week. I know I'm late (the question was posted yesterday) buts that's life as a Mom - you'll get over it. Today I am answering their question (with a lot of side comments)

What is your Favorite Cookie Recipe?
I think this may be a trick question - my favorite cookie recipe or the one I make all the time - or the one that my hubby buys. Yes I said buys, because he likes the tubs of premade cookie dough from Sam's.
We make the toll house recipe a lot (you know the one on the bag). My bigger boys all LOVE chocolate chip cookies - although I use mini chips and only put half the bag in the mix - then it's good for 2 batches.
Little Man loves any type of cookie - and frequently calls anything sweet a cookie; graham crackers, donuts, danish.
I on the other hand love ALL KINDS of cookies except chocolate chip. I know, I know, they are America's favorite - but I'm not a fan. I make them for my family all the time, but I don't eat them. (I do lick the bowl). I like peanut butter cookies, or white chocolate macadamia nut, or oatmeal raisin, or peanut butter with a kiss in the center, or butter cookies, or mint cookies, or M & M cookies. I'm not even sure I could chose a favorite.
But I must try.
OK Butter Cookies it is. They are super easy, light, filling, sweet and sometimes the simple things in life are just the best!
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Mix in flour. Roll dough into a log and chill dough for at least 45 minutes (or overnight).
Preheat oven to 400. Cut slices 1/4" thick and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 6-8 minutes.

  3. I LOVE sugar cookies right out of the oven, still warm, not too sweet - just amazing.

  4. I had no idea October was cookie month! I guess that means I should be looking for a Paula Deen cookie recipe to make. Lean cookies might be just the challenge I'm looking for. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Vodka - That is awesome just for your birthday month! Happy Birthday!

    Anit- Supermom, my goal was to make everyone drool over my blog so thanks for making my dreams come true.
