Skor Bar Oatmeal Cookies

Skor Bar Cookies

The currants were an interesting addition to the recipe, and it calls for a lot of them. If you’re cooking for an old audience, this recipe might liven things up because a lot of people haven’t tried currants and my guess is most people haven’t tried them with Skor bars. If you try these, let me know what you think. And good luck finding your Skor bars!

Crunchy Oatmeal Cookies

I chose today’s recipe because I wanted to use up some toasted wheat germ. Based on how good they were, it looks like toasted wheat germ will become a staple. I may never try another oatmeal cookie recipe again! I’ve baked cookies with wheat germ before, but it’s been a while. And frankly, …

Oatmeal Cookies

Last year a Washington newspaper posted an article about an Alaska Airlines pilot who baked oatmeal cookies for his crew. Now every time I see Alaska Airlines (which is often because they have a route from here to San Jose called The Nerd Bird) I think of cookies. Yesterday I was thinking about Hawaii, saw […]

I re-discovered this jumbo size cookie over the weekend. Years ago it was my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and quite popular with friends and family. People requested the cookies often, but after a while I got tired of making them and moved on. Yesterday, still in an oatmeal cookie mood and wanting to use up […]

Cheri’s Butterscotch Rangers

by on April 17, 2010 · 4 comments


A few weeks ago a reader, Cheri, sent me her favorite Ranger Cookie recipe. It’s similar to the other three Rangers but with some distinguishing details.   The recipe is made with all-butter (no shortening) and in place of the coconut and chocolate chips are butterscotch chips.   The cookies were delicious and had a lot of flavor, though they were on the sweet side so […]

Ellie Krieger Cookies

Have you tried the new honey oatmeal raisin cookie recipe from Food Network Magazine? It’s on page 42 in the “Ask Ellie” section and it’s quite similar to the agave honey cookie I posted months ago but with some key differences.  For instance, it makes about double the yield, uses all honey instead of agave, and includes dried milk powder and almond butter, […]
