Blog reader Celesta sent me an Amish cookbook. I was so happy to get it. I love cookbooks and I especially love Amish and church cookbooks. These are typically tried and true recipes. I really was excited for this book as there are many different cookie recipes. When Kramer, my husband, was living, I made lots of cakes and bars. Now, cookies are better. I can freeze them and nothing goes to waste. Here is the recipe…
Here are the directions:
I used my trusty…
chopper. I use this to chop nuts and lots of other things. (You can find one HERE on Amazon)
I added the pecans, nuts, and chips into the dough.
Then after I had them scooped onto the pan, I added more chips on top.
I made big cookies so I increased the oven time a little big. Don’t they look good??
I tried them first out of the oven. They were okay.
I tried them an hour later… I like them better.
I honestly really, really, liked them the next day. I know that seems weird but it’s true. I don’t know if the flavors blend more, or if it’s easier to taste the cranberries later. Whatever it is, these are fabulous. I’ll be making them again.
I thought they might be more of an “adult” cookie but the childcare kids liked them too!! That batch didn’t last long.
Thanks so much for the cookbook Celesta. I’ll be making more things with it!
