Some good cookie recipes

Source:  Editor:  Read:

Here is a great recipe that I've made many times. (my son is also in Iraq), and while I've never shipped these over to him, if I were to send baked goods, I would send these. I suggest making them smaller than the recipe suggests. And cutting down the time. I experiment with a couple of cookies first.
These are perhaps the best cookies I've ever tasted. Not the cheapest to make but the troops are well worth it.

Just Like Doubletree's Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup rolled oats
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened (No Substitutes!)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 eggs
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grind oats in a food processor or blender until ground fine.
Combine ground oats with flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
In a separate bowl combine the butter, sugars, vanilla and lemon juice and mix with mixer until combined.
Add the eggs and mix until smooth and creamy.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and blend well.
Add the chocolate chips and macadamia nuts to the dough and mix by hand until ingredients are well mixed.
Spoon rounded 1/4 cups full (yes, 1/4 cups!) onto ungreased, nonstick cookie sheet.
Place scoops of dough 2" apart (you don't need to press dough flat).
Bake 16-18 minutes or until cookies are light brown and soft in the middle.
Let cool.
Store in sealed container to keep soft.
(for best results chill dough overnight).

P.S. This is a nice website to check out regarding sending stuff out to our soldiers.

Homemade cookies are a nice thought, but by the time your stepson gets them in Iraq, they are going to be stale. Stick to things that last longer than a week, like bar cookies, which hold up better than a regular round cookie. Make sure you wrap each cookie individually in plastic wrap due to the bugs over there.
