Homeless in cookie taste

Hi all,

I know it's still a bit early but I was planning for the shopping list for Christmas cookie recipes I intend to make this year. I want to do like 2-3 recipes each weekend until Christmas in order not to end up in "cookie stress" like two years ago where I got so confused I mixed up two recipes. With the result that the "chocolate balls" ended up being "chocolate thins". They were good in taste but really ugly to look at.
So now I wrote down the list of cookies I will mainly make for my Mom and my friend and it was there when I realised I'm homeless in "the real cookie taste".
I found out that people think the "real taste" is the cookie they ate when they were children. The taste of childhood Christmas. That's why I'm going to make my grandmother's recipes for my Mom and my friend's Mom's recipe for my friend. I know my brother likes only the cookies my Mom used to make. She always bought the ready made dough from Migros and of course, that has a distinct taste. But I never particularely liked the dough and if I get a cookie from her nowadays I don't think it's all that great. I guess, I'm homeless in childhood cookie taste.
Do you still favor a cookie recipe as being your childhood memory of Christmas? Maybe you can post it here or a link to it? Since I don't have an old childhood cookie recipe maybe let me discover yours?

My list so far:
- Schoggi Chugglä (the famous chocolate balls )
- Berner Haselnuss Leckerli
- Haselnuss Stängeli
- Mailänderli
- Orangenblättchen
- Spitzbuben
- Vanille Kipferl
- Sugar Cookies

If you're interested in any of the above recipes, please, drop me a line.

PS: I collect cookie cutters. Just in case you have some which you thought to give away for adoption.

Re: Homeless in cookie taste

Wow they all sound wonderful. Alas, I don't think I have a childhood cookie as mum was more into the cupcakes and cakes. Mmmm her yoghurt sourcream Chocolate cake always makes me go mmmmm

I would be def interested in all the recipes as I have no cookie recipes and these sound fabulous.

Would be a nice surprise for my partner and his work colleagues as at the moment they seem to enjoy my banana choc chip yoghurt muffins but would be nice to do some cookies.

And maybe in exchange, I can when I go home to NZ over Xmas time, look for a New Zealand cookie cutter for you

Chocolate balls recipe sounds good, if you have a kindle there is a free chocolate chip cookie recipe book - Circle of Friends Cookbook - 25 Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes

Re: Homeless in cookie taste

Since bluecat (and maybe others?) are interested, I'm going to post the recipes on my new recipe blog.

It's not much there yet, but promised all of them get posted. Pictures coming later. I first have to make them...
