Scottish Shortbread

Scottish Shortbread by Marlin Rinehart

This is the most famous cookie of Scotland. It’s a must to use pure butter. Traditionally, shortbread contains no other flavor. I’ve been making this recipe since 1970 when I got the recipe in Edinburgh, Scotland. The addition of a small amount of rice flour gives a firmness and crunchiness to the cookie. Most American recipes for…

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars by Salad Foodie

An oatmeal streusel mixture serves as both crust and topping in this delightfully chewy cookie bar. The secret ingredient in the filling is purchased caramel topping. These bars are very sweet so cutting them in smaller portion sizes is appropriate. It just extends the sublime enjoyment of the treats - unless you just keep snitching…

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies

Everything Goes Oatmeal Coookies by J. Gino Genovesi

This is an original recipe. I was making them, years ago, because my children wanted a "loaded" oatmeal cookie that was good, soft and plump. Now my grand children like them and I thought I would pass it on so others can enjoy them. They are easy to prepare and delicious. Chef J. Gino Genovesi

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…
