AGGRESSION COOKIES

180 servings

3 cups brown sugar
3 cups margarine
6 cups oatmeal
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
2 eggs


Put the ingredients in large bowl. Mash, squeeze, knead, etc until it is completely blended. Form into small balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in size. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Butter the bottom of a small glass and dip into white sugar, then pound the cookies flat. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes. This is a good recipe to use when you need to get rid of some agressions because the dough is too heavy for most mixers. So you have to use your hands and beat it!! You can also use peanut butter or butterscotch chips or a mixture of them.

ALMOND SPICE COOKIES

1 servings

4 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter
2 teaspoons instant coffee powder
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar, *
3 extra large egg, or jumbo eggs
10 ounces blanched slivered almonds, **


* firmly packed ** (2 1/2 - 3 cups) These cookies go well with after dinner coffee or tea.

In a bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, ginger, salt and baking soda and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream the butter. Add the coffee, almond extract, granulated and brown sugars and beat well. Add the eggs one at a time until smooth after each addition. On low speed gradually add the sifted dry ingredients, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula and beating only until the mixture is smooth. Gently mix in the almonds.

Spread out two pieces of wax paper. place large spoonfuls of the dough lengthwise on each piece of paper to form heavy strips about 10-11 inches long. Fold the long sides of the paper p against the dough and, pressing against the paper with your hands, shape each strip of dough into a smooth oblong 12 inches long, 3 inches wide, and about 1 inch thick. Wrap the dough in the wax paper.

Slide a cookie sheet under both packages of dough and transfer them to the freezer or refrigerator for several hours or overnight. This slices best when dough is frozen solid.

Preheat oven to 375. Unwrap one roll of dough at a time. Place dough on a cutting board. With a very sharp knife cut the dough into 1/4-inch slices and place them 1 to 1 1/2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes at 375. The cookies are done when they are slightly colored and spring back when lightly pressed with a fingertip. Yield: 4 dozen.

AMARETTI

42 servings

1/2 pound soft almond paste, Canned
1 cup sugar
2 egg whites
granulated sugar, for dusting


PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 375F. Break the almond paste into small pieces and combine it with the sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on low speed until very fine. Add egg whites in 4 additions, mixing about 1 minute between each. Beat the paste until very smooth, about 2-to-3 minutes. Fill a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain tube with the mixture. Line 2 cookie sheets or jelly roll pans with parchment paper. Pipe the mixture on the paper in 1-to-1 1/2-inch mounds, about 1-inch apart. Fold a clean kitchen towel into a long strip and moisten the towel with water. Squeeze lightly to eliminate excess water, leaving the towel more than damp. Slap the surface of the Amaretti gently with the towel to moisten them and make the surface smooth. Sprinkle the Amaretti with granulated sugar. Bake about 15-to-20 minutes, until they are well risen, a deep golden color, and their surface is covered with tiny cracks. Remove from the oven and place the pans on racks to cool. To remove the Amaretti from the papers, turn the papers over with the Amaretti still adhering to them and wet the papers with hot water, using a brush. Leave a few minutes, then pull on the papers to release the Amaretti.

HERE ARE 2 VARIATIONS OF AMARETTI: Amaretti di Pinoli: After moistening the piped Amaretti, strew them with pine nuts, sprinkling them on heavily, then pressing lightly with the fingertips so that the pine nuts adhere. Do not dust with sugar. Bake as for the Amaretti. Fior di Mandorla: This variation of Amaretti is popular in Southern Italy and Sicily, where the mixture is sometimes colored green or pink during the mixing. Their rough, craggy appearance is a nice contrast to the smoothness of the standard Amaretti. Prepare the Amaretti, up to, and including, moistening them with the towel. Dust heavily with confectioners' sugar and allow the piped mixture to dry at room temperature, uncovered, at least 12 hours, or overnight. After they have dried, indent each of the piped mounds with the thumb, first and middle fingers of one hand, positioning them equidistant around the circumference, and pinching gently inward, about half way into the center. Bake the Fior di Mandorla at 375F, about 15-to-20 minutes. Cool and loosen the Fior di Mandorla as for the Amaretti.

ANISE MERINGUE KISSES

48 servings

3 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Ground anise seeds


The flavor of anise in these light cookies makes them a great after- dinner dessert. Some people prefer the center to be soft and chewy, but if you prefer the dry melt-in-your-mouth type of meringue, turn off the oven and, with the door closed, let them stand 30 minutes to an hour. These cookies are generally baked on parchment paper, but we have found that regular bond paper makes a very acceptable substitute. (By Times Food Stylists) Beat egg whites until frothy. Add cream of tartar and beat to soft peaks. Gradually beat in sugar. Continue beating until stiff and glossy. Beat in anise. Using pastry bag, pipe onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake at 275 degrees F. 30 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen kisses. NOTE: If drier meringue is desired, turn off oven and let kisses stand in oven with door closed about 1 hour. Each kiss contains about: 9 calories; 4 mg sodium; 0 cholesterol; 0 fat; 2 grams carbohydrates; 0 protein; trace fiber.

BENNE (SESAME SEED) COOKIES

1 servings

1 cup benne seeds, or sesame seeds
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup melted butter or margarine
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla


Known as sesame seeds in most of the country, "benne" is the name southerners learned to call these seeds, which were brought from Africa by slaves. Toasting benne seeds develop their flavor and also gives these cookies a slightly crunchy texture.

Heat oven to 375. Toast benne seeds on ungreased baking sheet until light brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Watch closely so they don't burn.

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients. Drop dough by 1/2 teaspoonfuls 1 1/2 inches apart onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 until light brown, about 4-6 minutes. Cool about 2 minutes before removing from baking sheets to wire rack to cool completely. Store in tightly covered cookie tin when thoroughly cooled. Yield: about 6 dozen.

BIRDS IN THE NEST

1 servings

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, or shortening
2 separated eggs
2 tablespoons water
2 cups flour, Unsifted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup Ground nuts
fruit jelly, (your favorite flavor)


These cookies have been a "must" on my family's holiday table since I was a little girl. My earliest memories of "birds in the nest" take me back to my maternal grandmother's house where she filled each "nest" according to the favorite jelly flavor of each of her grandchildren.

In a large bowl, cream the sugar and butter or shortening. Add egg yolks, water, flour, vanilla and salt. Mix well and compress into a ball.

Preheat oven to 350.

Break pieces off to form small, walnut-size balls. Dip each ball in unbeaten egg whites, then roll in ground nuts. Slightly flatten ball to form disk, then press finger in center to form a small well. Fill the well with a drop of jelly. (Don't put in to much or it will melt over the side of the cookie.)

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes on a greased cookie sheet Remove from oven and cool cookies on wire racks. Yield: about 4 dozen.

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup chopped walnuts, pecans, etc
FROSTING
1/2 cup butter
3 cups Sifted confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons instant coffee, *


* dissolved in 2 Tablespoons hot water These chewy squares ooze brown sugary butterscotch. They becrumb the lips and besmear the chin, like home-baked goodies should.

Preheat oven to 350.

Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add sugar and beat well to mix. Cool the mixture slightly, then beat in the eggs and vanilla.

Sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Stir it into the wet ingredients, then add the nuts. Mix well. Spread brownies in a greased 11 x 7 x 2-inch pan and bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until a light gold. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out. This is easiest if you up-end the pan over waxed paper, then turn the cake right side up. Let it finish cooling on a rack.

To make the frosting, cream 1/2 cup butter with confectioners sugar. Beat it until light, then beat in the coffee mixture. Spread over the brownies. When frosting has set, cut in squares.

Yield: 3 dozen 2-inch or 6 dozen 1-inch squares.

CHEWY CHOCOLATE-ORANGE BARS

24 servings

2 cups cake flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick cooking rolled oats
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 egg whites
raisin puree
3/4 cup Chopped bittersweet chocolate
1/3 cup Toasted walnuts
1 tablespoon Grated orange zest


Raisin Puree is the basis for the dough of this rich-tasting, chewy bar. The combination of orange and chocolate is a classic favorite. We considered cutting the amount of chocolate in the recipe, thereby cut- ting the fat, but in the end we agreed that the extra richness is worth the extra grams of fat. (By Times Food Stylists) Sift together flour, baking powder and salt into large bowl. Stir in oats and brown sugar. Beat egg whites lightly in another bowl. Stir in Raisin Puree. Stir into flour mixture along with chocolate, walnuts, and orange zest just until blended. Spoon in 9-inch-square baking pan sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. Bake at 350 degrees F. 25 to 30 minutes. Cool. Cut into 24 bars. 213 calories; 95 mg sodium; 0 cholesterol; 3 grams fat; 45 grams carbohydrates; 4 grams protein; 0.5 gram fiber.

CHOCOHOLICS COOKIES

50 servings

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
3 ounces unsalted butter
1 1/2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces pecan halves
6 ounces melted semisweet chocolate
12 ounces semisweet chocolate
3 ounces margarine
4 each eggs
4 tablespoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 ounces semisweet chocolate
8 ounces walnut halves

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Separate nuts on a baking sheet and place in oven until toasted, 10 to 12 minutes or until they develop a toasty aroma. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Increase oven temperature to 350 degrees. Place unsweetened chocolate, 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate, butter, margarine and espresso in top of double boiler and place over simmering (not boiling) water until chocolate is about 3/4 melted. Meanwhile, beat the eggs with a wire whisk in a large mixing bowl. Gradually add sugar, whisking until mixture becomes thick and light in color. When chocolate is almost melted, remove from heat and stir until completely melted and satiny in appearance. Gradually whisk chocolate into egg mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon to incorporate. Sift flour, baking powder and salt directly into chocolate mixture. Gently stir until the dry ingredients are barely incorporated. Cut the 6 oz of semi-sweet chocolate into 1/2 inch chunks and stir into dough along with the toasted nuts. Lightly butter 4 aluminum baking sheets. (do not use foil or cookies will burn) Drop dough by tablespoonfuls, 12 to a sheet to leave room for cookies to spread. Bake only one sheet at a time in center of oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies lose their shine. Cookies will still be very soft. Allow to cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans. Using a pin-sized tip on an icing bag, pipe melted semi-sweet chocolate onto cookies in a criss-cross pattern. Allow to cool at least 1 hour before storing in tins. Makes 50 one-ounce cookies

CHOCOLATE MADELEINES

24 servings

2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon rind, or orange rind, grated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
8 tablespoons butter, melted, cooled slightly, plus
4 tablespoons softened butter


PREHEAT OVEN TO 400F. Smear 1/2 teaspoon softened butter over the inside of each madeleine form. Be sure to completely cover with butter--don't leave spots. Combine the eggs, sugar and lemon or orange rind in a large mixing bowl, and stir them together. Set in a pan of simmering water and stir until the egg mixture is very warm to your finger. Remove from the heat and beat with a mixer at high speed until fluffy, pale yellow, and tripled in volume, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and salt. Dump the flour and cocoa into a sifter or strainer. Sift once, return to sifter or strainer and sprinkle half of it over the egg mixture, and fold it in. Pour in 8 tablespoons of butter and sprinkle on the remaining flour, and fold gently just until the batter is mixed. Spoon a generous tablespoon of batter into each prepared mold; do not spread it evenly; it will level itself in the oven. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the edges of the cakes are golden and they lift easily from the molds. (If you have only 1 pan, and can bake only 12 at a time, let the mold cool, wipe it out, grease with butter, then refill with batter and bake again.) Remove from the oven, slipping the tines of a table fork under each cookie to free it, and transfer the madeleines to a rack to cool. Serve within a few hours, or wrap airtight and freeze. Serve plain, or sprinkle the ribbed side with confectioners' sugar.

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, (not a mix)
1 extra large egg white
1/2 cup walnuts, Finely ground, or pecans


PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 300F. Beat all the ingredients together at the highest mixer speed for about 1 minute, or mix them in a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade for about 30 seconds. The mixture will be about as thick as fondant. With a stockinette- covered rolling pin, well-dusted with powdered sugar, roll the mixture on a board, also liberally dusted with 10X sugar, until it is 1/4-inch thick. With a 1 1/2-inch cutter dipped in 10X sugar, cut the meringue into small circles. Reroll the scraps and cut as many meringues as possible. Space the meringues about 1 1/2 inches apart on baking sheets. The baking sheets should be liberally dusted with flour. Bake them uncovered for 15 minutes. Cool the meringues for about 5 minutes on the baking sheets; then, with a spatula, carefully loosen them. Transfer them to wire racks. When they are cool, store them in airtight containers.

CHRISTMAS ANGEL COOKIES

1 servings

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup softened cream cheese
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups mixed candied fruits
2 cups pecans, Broken, or almonds


The cream cheese gives these cookies a smooth texture, while the fruits sparkle and sweeten the flavor. Nice for using the candied fruits that didn't make it into the fruit cake.

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl, cream shortening and cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Add sugars and eggs, mixing well. In a seperate bowl, sift flour, baking soda and salt together.

Add flour mixture to egg and sugar mixture; add vanilla. Mix well. Add candied fruit and nuts.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes. The cookies will be just browned at the edges.

Hint: You may have to mix candied fruit and nuts in with your hands; a little shortening on your fingers will keep the mixture from sticking.

Yield: 3 dozen.
