Chocolate Chunk Rice Krispie Cookies

This is my mother's best cookie recipe.  Incidentally she got it from my mother-in-law.  But it seriously is so delicious, and such a unique, hearty texture.  We have these at lest three times a month and they never get old.

{What you need}
  2 eggs
    1/2 c. butter
    2/3 c. sugar
    2/3 c. brown sugar
    1 c. oats
    1 1/2 c. flour
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    2/3 c. rice krispies
    1 c. chocolate chips
    1 c. white chocolate chips  

Cream together eggs, butter, and sugars.  Add oats, flour, and soda and blend evenly.  Fold in rice krispies and chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Enjoy with a huge glass of ice cold milk!

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

So easy.  So uniquely delish.  They are really peanut buttery, so if you don't like PB these might not be for you.  But if you do, then these are heaven!

{What you need}
1 cup white sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 egg
18 bite-size reese's peanut butter cups

Cream sugar, pb, and egg.  Form dough into small balls, forming each dough-ball around one peanut butter cup.  Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.  It is CRUCIAL that you do not over-bake them.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These totally are not in season, but they are delicious as ever!  Tonight for dinner I made this pasta so I thought I'd try to get the most out of the can of pumpkin we bought.  I googled a recipe for cookies and found this winner here.  The only change I made was I used chocolate chips instead of raisins and nuts.  That was a no-brainer to me.  They turned out to be the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookies John and I have ever had.  Enjoy!

{What you need}
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 bag chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, cream together sugar, egg, shortening, and vanilla.  In a separate bowl sift together the rest of the dry ingredients and gradually add in to sugar mixture until blended.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Spoon onto greased cookie sheets and cook for 10-15 minutes.  We found that 12 minutes is perfecto.
