Want to have a cookie exchange?

We could share a favorite cookie or candy recipe and perhaps a special memory attached to it. Anyone have a favorite they would like to share?

SEVEN LAYER BARS:

1 C. graham cracker crumbs. Mix in one stick melted butter. Press mixture in 9X13 pan. Sprinkle evenly (in the following order): 1 C. chocolate chips, 1 C. butterscotch chips, 1 C. walnut pieces, 1 C. shredded coconut, 1 can Eaglebrand sweetened condensed milk poured evenly on top. Bake @ 325 for half hour or until golden brown around the edges. Cut into squares. Indulge (leave room for Tums). So easy even I can do it.

Born in Canada, came here to go to college, ended up staying, but EVERY Christmas we make Butter Tarts with walnuts, not pecans. My sons have even asked for the recipe so they can continue the tradition in their homes in Minnesota, Utah and California.
Here's a website with pics and good recipe, but following is my recipe. Enjoy, eh!

Butter Tarts
(A great Canadian tradition. Recipe from my disintegrating copy of circa 1960ís Manitoba Co-op Cook Book.)

Cream until soft 3 T butter
Gradually blend in 1 c brown sugar, lightly packed
Cream thoroughly.
Beat slightly 1 egg
Add egg to creamed mixture, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir in Ĺ t salt
Ĺ t vanilla
ľ c broken walnuts
Ĺ c raisins or currants or mixture
Put a heaping teaspoonful of this mixture (or more, depending on size of shell) into unbaked tart shells. Bake at 375 deg F, until pastry is nicely browned. Makes 1 dozen medium sized tarts or 2 dozen midget tarts.

NOTES:
I usually double the recipe. For tart shells I use a boxed Pie Crust Mix thus avoiding the disaster of my homemade pie crust. A curvy Coca-Cola glass makes the perfect size (@3Ē) shell that is gently pressed into a regular muffin tin. I usually bake the tarts about 10-15 minutes until the creamed mixture is a medium golden brown. Use a thin-bladed dinner knife to separate the filling that has stuck to the muffin tin. Then let the tarts cool long enough to be able to lift them out with the knife. Move tarts to cooling racks. Can be frozen, but they usually donít make it that far. Sometimes they donít even make it to the tin. Thatís why I started doubling the recipe.

I am of Italian descent, ergo the name Gilda (pronounced Jill-da). I made traditional biscotti today. This is already my second batch and it's not even Christmas yet! When we camp I make these with Trail Mix added to the batter making Trail Mix Biscotti. They are a welcome treat on the trail (or in camp) as they are delicious and last forever. In Italy people dunk them in wine but they are also good dunked in coffee, tea or milk. Enjoy! Note: Once you have fresh, homemade biscotti you will NEVER want store-bought again!

Biscotti (Twice-Baked Italian Cookies)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
(Optional: 2 tablespoons anise seed and 1/8 cup anise-flavored liqueur)
1 1/2 tablespoons Bourbon or 2 teaspoons vanilla and 2 tablespoons water
1 cup coarsely chopped almonds or walnuts OR 2 1/2 cups Trail Mix
3 eggs
2 3/4 cups regular all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder

Mix sugar with butter, anise seed, anise liqueur, Bourbon (or vanilla and water), and nuts. Beat in the eggs. Sift and measure flour and sift again with baking powder into the sugar mixture; blend thoroughly. Cover and chill the dough for 2 to 3 hours.

On a lightly floured board, shape dough (10 oz. each) with your hands to form flat loaves that are about 1/2 inch thick and 2 inches wide, and as long as your cookie sheets. Place no more than 2 loaves, parallel and well apart, on a buttered or parchment-lined cookie sheet (one without rims is best). Bake in 375 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and let loaves cool on pans until you can touch them, then cut in diagonal slices that are about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. Lay slices on cut sides close together on cooky sheet and return to the oven (375 degrees) for 15 minutes more or until lightly toasted. Cool on wire racks and store in airtight containers or freeze. Makes about 4 dozen.

While I haven't yet made these, they sound delish and would be great while camping/hiking.

1/4 cup Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs Sweet
1/4 cup Unsweetened cocoa powder

pinch of (sea) salt

Put in processor, line bread pan with plastic wrap, press, form, chill, cut and eat!

Oh, man, my hubby's aunt made wonderful butter tarts!!
She used to bring them to every family gathering.
They're great with a hot cuppa tea
