"Not the best cookie recipe in the 12 days of cookies. I read the reviews and took my own approach to the recipe.
Melted the butter on low
Added the sugar to the melted butter
stired in the pecans as the butter and sugar started to blend together
(Stiring the entire time)
Once bubbles started to break the surface, I removed from heat and poured over the crackers
Baked for 10 mins at 350
Melt the chocolate and in my opinion works best when drizzled over the cooling mixture. If you try to spread you'll just break up the toffee and ruin the spread.
I dont have dark chocolate fans in my house, so i used milk chocolate.. Came out super sweet. Next time i'll opt for Semi- sweet Chocolate.
I have a giant list of Egg substitutes because my niephew is allergic and even the egg subsitites sold in most markets has eggs in it. So I refused to leave him out in any of my baking.
Using Flax Seed:
For each egg needed, place in blender:
1 heaping tablespoon of whole organic flax seed, blend until it becomes a fine meal. Add 1/4 cup cold water blend 2-3 minutes until thickened and has the consistency of eggs. Each 1/4 cup of Flax seed mixture will replace one egg in baking
Before starting recipe for cookies, cake etc... Combine 1 tsp unflavored gelatin with 3 tblsp cold water and 2 tblsp plus 1 tsp boiling water. This mixture will substitute for 1 egg in a recipe.
Tofu is great for egg substitutions in recipes that call for a lot of egg (like quiches). To substitute for only one egg in a recipe, whip 1/4 cup tofu and add to your cooking.
1 whole egg = 2 tbsp water and 1 tbsp oil and 2 tsp baking powder.
Use fresh lemon juice from the lemon you are zesting. If its a good lemon it should give you exactly the 3tbspns you need (if you squeeze the daylights out of it)
"What a punch of lemon! Some lemon cookies only give you the hint. These lemon cookies feel like an explosion of flavor! I found two tablespoons of the batter to give me huge cookies. So i went with the single tablespoon which in turn nearly trippled the yeild of cookies and still giving you a good cookie share size. Especially if you thought about shipping some these yummy morsels!! YAY TO GO GIADA!!

"I had never had a Coconut Macaroon before this recipe. I was a bit hesitant since I wasn't sure how the cookie should actually turn out. I made the batch and hoped for the best. My taste testers came over and RAVED. They said they were perfect. Chewy and Crunchy just where they should be. My only observation is that I got run off from these cookies. They seemed to melt as they cooked. and alot of my cookies had condensed milk tails. Did I not peak the eggwhites enough? Not sure what caused this. But otherwise, the cookies were AMAZING, and surprisingly easy to make.
Reviewed Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies
"OH Paula! What a way to start off the 12 days of cookies! My pants will never fit the same! I made these in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry by simply substituting the boxed cake flavor. It made for a beautiful Neopolitian cookie platter. My friends thought I spent hours slaving away. And I let them think just that!
I love to Cook!! I love to find substitutes for most ingrediants in recipes because i know so many people with delicate nutrition needs.
