    Brown Sugar Cookies from americas test kitchen???

    Makes 2 Dozen Cookies

    14 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 3/4 sticks)

    1/4 cup granulated sugar (about 1 3/4 ounces)

    2 cups packed dark brown sugar (14 ounces)

    2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons (about 10 1/2 ounces)

    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    1/4 teaspoon baking powder

    1/2 teaspoon table salt

    1 large egg

    1 large egg yolk

    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    1. Heat 10 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until melted, about 2 minutes. Continue to cook, swirling pan constantly until butter is dark golden brown and has nutty aroma, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and transfer browned butter to large heatproof bowl. Stir remaining 4 tablespoons butter into hot butter to melt; set aside for 15 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large (18 by 12-inch) baking sheets with parchment paper. In shallow baking dish or pie plate, mix granulated sugar and 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, rubbing between fingers, until well combined; set aside. Whisk flour, baking soda, and baking powder together in medium bowl; set aside.

    3. Add remaining 1 3/4 cups brown sugar and salt to bowl with cooled butter; mix until no sugar lumps remain, about 30 seconds. Scrape down sides of bowl with rubber spatula; add egg, yolk, and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated, about 30 seconds. Scrape down bowl. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined, about 1 minute. Give dough final stir with rubber spatula to ensure that no flour pockets remain and ingredients are evenly distributed.

    4. Divide dough into 24 portions, each about 2 tablespoons, rolling between hands into balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Working in batches, toss balls in reserved sugar mixture to coat and set on prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart, 12 dough balls per sheet. (Smaller baking sheets can be used, but it will take 3 batches.)

    5. Bake one sheet at a time until cookies are browned and still puffy and edges have begun to set but centers are still soft (cookies will look raw between cracks and seem underdone; see photo below), 12 to 14 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through baking. Do not overbake.

    6. Cool cookies on baking sheet 5 minutes; using wide metal spatula, transfer cookies to wire rack and cool to room temperature.

    ½ c peanut butter

    2 t vanilla

    3 c quick oats

    Mix completely. Drop by teaspoon onto waxed paper.

    good luck!!!!!

  • Mint Brownies - we've been making these forever. Somewhere in a Phoenix newspaper archive is an article from 1967 about my mom's baking and this recipe is in it!

    Chocolate Mint Brownies

    (don't lick the chocolate off the top - it's unsweetened - but when you bite straight through it's the most amazing combination of flavors).

    1/2 c butter

    1 c sugar

    2 eggs

    1 tsp vanilla

    2 ozs unsweetened baking chocolate -- melted

    1/2 c flour

    1/2 c walnuts -- finely chopped


    1 c powdered sugar

    2 tbsps butter -- softened

    1 tbsp half and half

    1/4 to 1/2 tsp peppermint extract (start at 1/4 then taste)

    green food coloring (optional - but I think it looks best with it and everyone will know it is mint)


    1 oz unsweetened baking chocolate

    1 tbsp butter

    Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8X8-inch pan. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add melted chocolate. Blend well. Stir in flour and nuts. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 25 minutes.

    Make frosting: Combine powdered sugar, softened butter, cream, extract and food coloring. Beat well, spread on brownies. Let stand till set.

    Make glaze: Melt unsweetened chocolate and 1 tbsp butter. Spread over frosting. Chill.

    Classic lovely Italian appetizer: Prosciutto & melon You can get Prociutto (it's a very nice dry-cured Italian ham) VERY thinly sliced at your deli counter in the grocery store (or there are packages you can buy). Just take a thin slice and wrap it around a small slice of cantaloupe. Yum! You can keep pieces together with toothpicks or they should be fine without too.
