Triple Chocolate Cookies

This is the perfect treat when you're craving something sinfully chocolate. The only thing better than the cookies themselves is the rich batter!

Lemon Biscotti

Biscotti is the twice baked potato of the cookie world. It is first cooked like a loaf then sliced and baked again. This gives the cookie its dry texture, which is perfect for dunking.

1 cup sugar
½ cup butter
2 tbsp lemon juice (the juice from 1 lemon)
2 tsp grated lemon peel
2 eggs
3 ¼ cups Partially Sifted Flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Beat sugar, butter, lemon juice, lemon peel and egg until smooth. Add in dry ingredients. Shape dough into two rectangles, each 10 x 3 inches. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes. Cut cookies into ½ inch slices and place back onto the cookie sheet with the just cut side down. Bake for 15 more minutes or until crispy and light brown.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Now, these cookies are so moist and chewy they’re almost like mini-loafs. Not to mention, they’re even tasty frozen!

1 cup sugar
2 medium bananas, mashed
¾ cup butter
1 egg
2½ cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup Partially Sifted Flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Beat sugar, bananas, butter and egg in a large mixing bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop tablespoons of dough on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. 

Whole Wheat and Honey Cookies

The honey in these cookies keep them extra moist. They go perfectly with a nice cup of tea during a cool evening.  

½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup softened butter
½ cup honey
½ tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 cups Whole Grain Wheat Flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
