German Chocolate Cookies

German Chocolate Cookies

Just the other day I got an email from the New York Times “What to cook this week.” Do you get them? They’ve become kind of a highlight for me, just a minute or two of reading Sam Sifton talk about food. One of the food items he mentioned recently was German Chocolate Cookies.

Gingersnap Cookies - perfect for the Holiday.

Gingersnaps

Gingersnap Cookies - these are the crispy ones! Old Fashioned but will win your heart!

I remember baking Gingersnap Cookies with my Mom. Kneeling on a chair at the kitchen table, it was always the job of us kids to take a glass (and the one we used had a little design on the bottom – it might have been one of Mom’s crystal glasses) dip it in sugar and gently press the cookies before baking.

Pumpkin Drop Cookies

Pumpkin Drop Cookies: Ya gotta love these simple yet delectable cookies that are stirred up with a spoon! Make raisin or chocolate chip.

When I was little, I have very fond memories of making cookies with my Mom. Well, she made them and we pressed the forks into them to make a cross-hatch – and they were always peanut butter. But at my friend Lynette’s house, they made all kinds of things! Including Pumpkin Drop Cookies.

Old Fashioned Date Pinwheel Cookies - Grandma's Recipe

Date Pinwheels - they're crispy on the edges with a chewiness that's just incredible.

These Date Pinwheels were my Grandmother Irene’s recipe. My Mom’s Mom, and of all the cookies our family had at Christmas, these were my favorite. When Grandma thought I was old enough, she let me slice the cookie rolls into coins & I remember how hard I’d concentrate to try to get them perfect!
