Q. Hi Im looking for a really cool recipe to bake for my students at school. If you have any delicious receipes for cookies please post here. best recipe wins 10 points. I'm looking for a unique and great tasting recipe. Id appreciate it very much!
I would like very original receipes of your own not taken from a website but pretty much your own recipe which you may have got from another recipe but made some changes and its tried and tested.

A. Jack-O-Lantern Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk
orange and green food coloring
1 package hard lemon drops, about 5 ounces, crushed *
Preheat oven to 350°. Cover 3 cookie sheets with foil. In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, beating until smooth. Beat in flour, baking powder and salt. Add milk if batter is too stiff. Color all but 1/8 of dough orange and color rest green. Using orange dough, shape into 1-inch balls; flatten with hand to make a pumpkin shape. Place on cookie sheets . Roll small stems with the green dough; attach one to the top of each pumpkin. Carefully cut out wide spaces for the eyes, nose and mouth with a knife. Fill holes in with crushed lemon candy. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until done but not browned.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes and carefully peel off foil.
* Crush lemon drops in food processor. If mixture becomes sticky, add a little powdered sugar while chopping.

Spidery Cookie Wreaths
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans or almonds
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon orange paste food coloring
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
Red cinnamon candies or miniature candy-coated semisweet chocolate pieces (optional)

1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed about 30 seconds or until softened. Add the sugar and baking powder. Beat until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in remaining flour.

2. Place half of the dough in a small mixing bowl. Stir in the pecans or almonds; set aside. To the remaining dough, knead in the orange peel and food coloring. Cover and chill both portions of dough about 30 minutes or until easy to handle.

3. On a lightly floured surface, shape each dough portion into a 12-inch-long log. Cut each log into twenty-four 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Roll each piece into a 6-inch-long rope. If necessary, cover and chill ropes for 10 to 15 minutes if soft and difficult to work with. Place a white and an orange rope side by side and twist together 5 or 6 times. Shape into a circle, gently pinching together the ends. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving 2 inches between cookies. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool on cookie sheet about 1 minute, then remove and cool thoroughly on a wire rack.

4. In a small mixing bowl, stir together sifted powdered sugar and enough milk to make an icing of piping consistency. Tint with desired colors of paste or liquid food coloring.

5. Using a decorating bag and writing tip #2, pipe icing into various-size spiders randomly on cookies. If desired, use red cinnamon candies, or candy-coated chocolate pieces for the body of the spider. Use a dab of icing to hold body on cookies. Let cookies stand until icing is set. Makes 24 cookies

Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool cookies on baking sheets 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Ghost Meringues
(makes 12 ghosts)

3 large egg whites, at room temperature1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) cream of tartar3/4 cup (188 g) one-to-one sugar substitute, such as Louis Sherry One Spoon Sugar Replacement1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) pure vanilla extract24 dried currants

Preheat oven to 200°F (130°C).

Line two large, heavy baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean, grease-free mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar substitute, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) every 30 seconds until meringue holds very stiff peaks. Beat in vanilla.

Spoon meringue into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) plain tip or spoon into a gallon-size (1 l-size) heavy plastic food bag, then cut off 1 corner to make a 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) wide opening.

Pipe meringue onto prepared baking sheets into ghost shapes, about 3 inches (3.75 cm) wide and 5 inches (6.25 cm) high. Space ghosts about 2 inches (2.5 cm) apart. Press 2 currants into each ghost to form the eyes.

Bake until meringues begin to turn pale gold and are firm to the touch, about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours, switching baking sheet positions half way through the baking time. Turn off oven and leave meringues in closed oven for 2 hours. Cool slightly. When just barely warm, slip each ghost into a plastic sandwich bag and tie tops with pieces of orange and black ribbons
