Cookie in a jar
About this Cook
I've been a kitchen helper since I could barely see over the counter. I love trying recipes from other countries, even though they don't always turn out.
My favorite things to cook
I love making candies and desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas, we make cookie trays for our teachers and friends. We always include our favorite kinds, but also try out some new recipes. The best looking cookies go on the trays, but there are always leftovers!!

Chocolate Toffee Cookies II
I was so disappointed in these cookies!! I followed the recipe, but the cookies completely flattened in the oven regardless of how long I baked them. They stuck to the baking sheet and were hard to scrape off. After I scraped them off, I crumbled the cookies into small bits and served it over ice cream. I give the recipe 3 stars because the crumbs were delicious, even though they didn't form real cookies. I won't use this recipe again.

Banana Shake
This was good, although it should be called a smoothie instead of a shake. I exchanged vanilla extract for the lemon juice, and added cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1tbsp peanut butter. I also added a few ice cubes. With these changes it was delicious!

Robbi's M&M Cookies
These cookies were everything I was hoping for! I used half butter and half shortening. I also needed to add about half a cup of flour. With these changes they turned out great!
