Today I’m going to share two very simply cookie recipes. You only need a few ingredients for them, and they are so quick and easy, these just might turn into your “go-to cookies” when you’re in a pinch!
MAGIC COOKIE BARS
1 stick butter
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1-1/3 cups coconut
2 cups chocolate chips (or M&M candies or any type of baking chips)
1 cup nuts
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9×13 pan with foil, lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place butter in pan and put into oven until melted.
Sprinkle crumbs evenly over melted butter. Pour condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Top with remaining ingredients and press down lightly.
Bake for aout 20-25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool completely. Use foil to lift out of pan. Cut into bars. Store covered at room temperature.
PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp. baking soda
Extra sugar for the tops
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, beat together peanut butter and sugar until well combined. Add egg and baking soda to mixture until well combined. Roll teaspoons of dough into balls and arrange about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Dip a large glass into a dish of sugar and use the glass to flatten the cookie slightly. Then use a fork to make a crosshatch design. Bake for about 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for about 2 mintues, and remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
