The ranger cookie history goes back to the 1930’s Texas rangers. The cookies are very similar to the cowboy cookie, which I grew up on all my life. These cookies were a typical dessert for the Texas ranger’s dinner since they were handheld and packed with energy packed ingredients that were perfect for the Texas rangers to keep them going.
Today they make the perfect snack for keeping you going on a hike in the wonderful fall weather or a snack for your mid afternoon energy boost. The cookies come out moist and packed with sweet and delicious flavors. The nuts or chocolate chips can be replaced with raisins for a healthier option.
I know the sound of potato chips in cookies does sound a bit odd, but they are a classic old fashion cookie that pack a great balance of flavor with every bite. The preparation is very easy and only a few ingredients that are even easier to find. Potato chip cookies have a great sweet and salty flavor that will please everybody. The cookies are full of butter flavor and crunch from the walnut and potato chip pieces.
When it comes to cookies, there is two sides you can be on, the soft and chewy or then thin and crispy side. Me personally, I love the thicker and soft cookies that are chewy. These old-fashioned oatmeal chocolate chip cookies come out chewy and stay chewy for days after you make them. The cookies are packed with chocolate chips and rolled oats (doesn't that make these healthy). The cookies are extremely simple to prepare and make in minutes. I am not a huge sweets person, but I love these cookies!!
Here in Minnesota, it seems like every barbecue or party, you will always see some type of bars on the table. They are very easy to make and are typically delicious. These chocolate mud hen bars don't have the best sounding name but they come tasting really good. They are pretty much a s'more type bar that has a cookie crust with walnuts, chocolate and marshmallows topped with a brown sugar meringue. The bars some out chewy and sweet.
The shortbread cookie is one of most versatile cookies out there. Shortbread cookies are found all over the world, a slightly difference in the preparation they all have that rich butter flavor in common. In these Hawaiian nut cookies, is the standard rich flavor from the butter along with the sweetness from the sugars and coconut flakes that goes great with the great crunch from the macadamia nuts. The recipe takes well under 30 minutes from start to finish and you will end up with 3 dozen moist and chewy cookies that your friends and family will love.
These Macadamia espresso cookies are crisp around the edges but soft and gooey in the middle packed with espresso and nut flavors. They are great treat for anytime, besides right before bed for obvious reasons. They are not the sweetest cookie, but with the addition of the drizzled chocolate helps balance out the flavors. They are a great grown up cookie to make that go great with a cup of coffee or milk.

A classic style of cookie is the sandwich cookie which uses two cookies and fills them with variety of different filling. In the holiday season it tends to be two sugar cookie with a jam filling. In these blackberry walnut sandwich cookies, I use two buttery, nutty shortbread cookies packed with finely chopped walnuts then filled with tart blackberry jam between. Then finished off with a dusting of powdered sugar. Check out the recipe below in this post.
