    My fave moments involve my mom and I frosting gingerbread houses at the holidays…such good times! Thanks!

  2. Brian

    My favorite memory was when my mom, my sister and I decided to have a cookie tasting night. We bought over 10 varieties of cookies and munched away while watching movies.

  3. Noel

    Baking fresh bread from scratch with my daughter for easter is always so special and reminds me of my own childhood!

  4. Heather Young

    We used to sell cookies in Girl Scouts & after every event (ie setting up at Krogers, selling infront of Walmart) our girl scout leader would buy our troop a box of cookies, our selection, and we got to eat them!!! yummy :)

  5. cammie turner

    My favorite baking time was and is during the holidays with my family and friends. we get a group of us and get our fav. cookie mixes put together and meet up and ones home and bake many different types of cookies. we listen to xmas music and drink our coffee, tea or whatever we are wanting at the time and nibble on the different cookies we are all baking. We then divide cookies up and take them home for the holidays.

  6. Dawn

    My favorite memories are baking cookies with my Grandmother. When I got “too old” to bake cookies with her, she started a tradition with my kids. She has them over the week before Chirstmas and they make a little of everything, but everyones favorite is and always has been, chocolate chip cookies. I love that she carried on the tradition with my kids, and I still end up getting right in there with them to help.

  7. Making cookies with my three boys is always an adventure. The boys all want to lick spoons, bowls and each other!! A favorite old memory is making cookies with my cousin who I loved dearly but only got to see a few times a year. We were silly preteens who wanted to play a joke on the grownups one year. After lots of giggling-we served up jalapeƱo laced cookies and were lucky to only get in a little trouble! We still laugh about that day.

  8. Lois Meyer

    Oh my favorite would be learning how to make cookies with my mom when I was in 3rd grade. After that I was good. Amazing. Those were the days when we had to mix up all the ingredients no buying cookies in dairy section. Love them chocolate Chip cookies. Yummmmmmy.

  9. My favorite memory is going over my great grandparents house and as soon as you walked in the door you could smell the freshly baked cookies that she had baked. I miss going to their house but now she has Alzheimer and my grandfather has passed.

  10. Cheryl

    I remember baking with my grandmothers everytime I went to stay with each of them as a child… They were the ones who taught me how to cook since my mother can’t cook…. I remember she tried to make a pineapple upside down cake, and set the kitchen on fire and ever since she was banned from cooking in our house! But now that I’m married, I try to bake/cook something new atleast once a month.. My husband loves it! And next weekend officially kicks off our cooler fall temps and that means it’s back to baking! Nothing says love more than a fresh batch of cookies or our new favorite… Caramel Apple Cupcakes!!!

  11. DAVID BUEHLER

    AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER WE’VE BEEN BAKING FOR THE HOLIDAYS. I CAN REMEMBER MY MOM HAVING INDGREDIENTS ALL OVER THE COUNTERTOPS, ICING AND SPRINKLES ON THE DINING ROOM TABLE AND NUMEROUS COOKIE SHEETS COOLING THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE AND THE SMELL OF WARM COOKIES PERMIATING THE AIR. AS KIDS, SHE WOULD LET US HELP WITH THE MIXING AND DECORATING. AS TEENAGERS, SHE TAUGHT US ALL OF HER FAVORITE RECIPES AND WE WOULD GET TO MAKE THEM. DAD WOULD BRING BIG CARDBOARD BOXES HOME FROM HIS WORK AND WE WOULD LAYER THE COOKIES IN THE BOXES WITH WAXED PAPER IN BETWEEN TO PREVENT STICKING SO WE COULD TAKE THEM TO THE BIG FAMILY GATHERING FOR THE HOLIDAYS. THAT WAS OUR FAMILY’S DONATION TO THE FAMILY BUFFET. THE BEST PART WAS EATING ALL OF THE BROKEN COOKIES OR WAITING UNTIL THE BOXES WERE ALMOST EMPTY AND GETTING ALL OF THE BROKEN BITS MIXED UP IN THE BOTTOM OF THE BOX FOR A VARIETY OF FLAVORS. WE ALL WOULD EXCHANGE RECIPES WITH OTHER FAMILIES TO ADD TO THE COOKIES WE COULD MAKE EACH YEAR. I STILL DO THIS TODAY ALLTHOUGH MY KIDS ARE GROWN.

  12. Cheryl Murphy

    My favorite memory is at Christmas time baking chocolate chip cookies and sugar cookies with my mom and of course sampling them as we go along.

  13. Barbara

    My favorite memories of cookie baking is when my two older children were young and we did not have much money. We would bake “peaunt butter cookies” because they were so cheap. My kids always made it seem fun. One time we had to go borrow the peanut butter. lol They are now 32 and 30 with two children of their own.

  14. Rebecca Hughes

    My favorite memories are with our Ladies Cookie Exchange at our church.Everyone makes at least 12 dozen of their favorite cookies,use maybe 3 dozen for sampling then you “exchange” with others.Then you go home with several differant kinds of cookies and recipes all ready for your holiday gatherings.It’s a great time of fun and fellowship with the girls before everything gets too hectic!

  15. Sarina

    With my daughter, as a little girl, placing cookies out for Santa.

  16. Wanda Rountree

    Baking and eating cookies with my children when they were small.

  17. Katelin

    My favorite memory was & still is making all the different Christmas Cookies we have each year from Thumbprint Cookies to Hermits, there’s nothing better!

  18. Bonnie Sue

    I can remember when I was maybe 8 or so. We were to have our brownie troop divide into groups and walk to the assigned parents home for an afternoon of baking cookies.
    My mother had gotten everything ready and was such a great teacher to all who attended our class in our home.
    Each of the girl’s were able to take home a large bag of cookies with them at the end of the day. Well the other thing was the fact that when my mother bakes cookies she makes LOT’S of cookies and the are large (tea cup saucer size). She was used to feeding my brothers. I was a bit nervous about everyone coming to my home because we were not the riches family in town. But later on the walk back to the school. All of the girls told me how nice my mother was and that the all had a great time. I will never forget that day.

  19. Brandy

    My favorite cookie memories are baking with the kids. I love to see their faces lit up when they’ve seen what they have created …and then get to eat ‘em up!

  20. Nan

    My favorite memory happens every year when I make all the different kinds of cookies. I use them for gifts and to take to parties or send to work with my husband.

  21. Patti Wolff

    My most favorite cookie memory is from my Grandmother. Every time I would walk into her house she was baking chocolate chip cookies. She would pull them out of the oven and put them on a plate while they were still hot and gooey for me and my siblings along with a big glass of cold milk, and at that moment in time, nothing else seemed to matter. If she baked a batch that wasn’t perfect then she wouldn’t serve them to anyone. My Grandmother was perfect in every way and so were her cookies!

  22. Baking and decorating Christmas cookies at the holidays. My mom would always invite one of her friends over and that person would bring her kids. She’d set up the table with frosting and every kind of decoration imaginable. So much fun!

  23. Jen

    My greatest memories are of my mom baking her “famous” chocolate chip cookies. I still get jealous when she tells me she is making them now, because we live a state away!

  24. Austin

    When my wife bakes cookies! The house always smells good. Although I usually want to eat them all…

  25. Kim Malone

    Like to make cookies any time of the year, but since I live in La. and it gets so hot here, my favoirte time is during the fall and winter months and especially at Christmas when I make cut-out cookies. So many of my good memories are of times spent with family and friends while making cookies…nothing beats it!

  26. Jocelyn A.

    I love my Mom’s sugar cookies and always enjoyed when she would make them! I always wanted to eat the cookie dough more than the cooked cookies…although I ate those,too :)

  27. My favorite cookie memories are when my grandma made cookies. They were the best!!

  28. Tiffany Jank

    My favorite memory…making cookies with my mom before she passed away.

  29. sarah jennings

    My favorite cookie memories is when i was little kid i would go to my mamaws house and we would make cookies and she would let me lick the batter! =]

  30. Erin Hunt

    My favorite cookie making memories were with my mom when I was little. Every year she made cookies for EVERYONE! She saved the plastic buckets from the large tubs of icecream to store them in and then decorated them. The house always smelled so good! And when she decorated them, everything was to perfection! They were the cutest little gingerbreads, angels, and snowmen you’d ever seen!

  31. lisa anderson

We wanted to make my mom pumpkin cookies that she could have when she got home from work….We got all the stuff together to make them and the recipe called for 1 cup of pumpkin…We Put in the WHOLE CAN…Needless to say our cookies never baked and it just spread into one big sheet of glob on the cookie sheet…Mom thought it was funny.

  46. Kelly Villanti

    My girlfriends and I do a cookie exchange every year a couple of weeks before Christmas. Then we meet for lunch and drinks to enjoy our own little holiday party and exchange cookies afterward. Its a great way for us to enjoy quality time and we each end up with a variety of cookies to share with our holiday guests.

  47. Toletha Farrar

    My favorite memory was helping my mom in the kitchen when I was about 5 making all kids of Christmas candy, my favorite was the hard candies. The kitchen would smell like spermint, cinnamon, cherry, and powdered sugar all at once!

  48. jeana j

    my cookie memory was when i was five and i had to make reindeer cookie for my classmates. my pop-pop helped me out and when we took pictures we had the cheesiest grins on our face and still and crazy bed hair because we made them right when we woke up. I love my pop-pop. :-)

  49. Holley

    Definitely making Christmas cookies with my mom!!!!

  50. Mike

    My favorite cookie memory is from way back when my older brother and I would come in from playing out in the snow and our grandmother had the house so warm and the smell of her home made chocolate chip cookies would just smack you right in face as you opened the door to come in. MMMMMMMM the good old days.

  51. My favorite memory of baking cookies is the annual tradition my daughter and I had at Christmas time. Every year, we would make sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies and decorate them with Christmas themes. We no longer do this (as she’s all grown up) but I sure do miss this time spent together :)

  52. sheina owens

    My Fav cookie memory is EVERYTIME the kids and I make My hubby/Daddy his fav peanut butter cookies and the smiles on their faces when they get to cris-cros the cookies “just the way Daddy likes them” :)(: MELTS MY HEART <3

  53. Kaytra

    when everyone get together and go to grandmom house the nite before christmas and baked cookies and have dinner….those are the times that make the holidays so great…..

  54. karen

    I think the best memory of cookies for me was when I was little. We walked to school, rain, shine snow whatever but when it was a particularly bad day of weather, my mom had warm cookies for us. I remember even as I was walking home and getting all wet and thinking how unfair it was that we didn’t have a car to get picked up in, my mom made it better by have cookies for us. My favorite was sickerdoodles. The purest simplicity of the cookie dough and the cinnamon sugar all over was the best. I always try to do the same for my children now and hopefully they will do the same for their children. A really good tradition.

  55. Amanda Dixon

    My favorite cookie moments were always with my dad when I was growing up. I was an only child and he had no idea what to do with a little girl by himself. After multiple baking attempts we just ended up going to the store and buying the freshest we could find and telling the rest of the family they were made from scratch!

  56. Lily Sparrow

    My fav. cookie moment would be when I baked a first batch at the age of 11 and they turned out as hard as rocks!!! Now I’ve improved, but still lol.

  57. Pamela Vargas

    Well, I remember my mom would go all out during the holidays Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter making hundreds of cookies, pies and cakes..all definitly yummy. Now that I have a daughter I plan to share those moments and recipes with her as my mom did with me! This is my daughters, Aurora’s, first Thanksgiving and Christmas even though she’ll only be 7 and 8 months I can’t wait to share these moments now and years to come:)

  58. Pam Kissel

    My favorite cookie memories are centered around Christas when My mother, grandmother and aunts would all bring out their cookie tray to the oohs and ahhs of the rest of the family. Then I would love to listen to the women talk about their new recipes, the failures and the tried and true recipes, tasting each others cookies laughing and talking.

  59. Misty Davis

    I smell.. the texture.. the warmth that filled the house. I loved every moment I shared with my mom and she taught me so much about cooking and she even had a few special cookie recipes that she passed down to me prior to passing away four years ago. I wish she could pass these down to my children. I can’t wait to teach them what she taught me. :)

  60. Ashley

    My favorite cookie memory is when my daughter(2yrs at the time) baked our first Halloween cookies together. We had fun and didn’t care if we made a mess. We just enjoyed the time together. We’ve made lots of baking memories and hope to continue. My daughter is 4.5 now and loves to help out in the kitchen. Of course she loves to help eat the cookies too! :)

  61. Carolina Garcia

    my most cherished memories are watching my parents together bake us all type of goodies for the holidays, I’ll never forget the smell at my house and just waiting with my brother and sister to dig in! lol

  62. Jashlyn Davis

    I remembered a long time ago when me and my grandma, bought Mrs. Fields cookies at the mall. The flavor was my all time fav: chocolate chip, soft baked cookies. Her and I would share one with a glass of cold milk every Saturday in the kitchen. When my mother was at work, I spent most of my time enjoying eating cookies with my grandma. We’d laugh and keep going back to the mall buying more cookies. My grandma loved me and I loved her very much. When she passed in ’93, I still buy Mrs. Fields chocolate chip soft cookies and smile. I’d never forget those memories I shared with her. That was the very first time I was introduced to eating Mrs. Fields delicious cookies; by enjoying them with the woman I miss everyday…

  63. April

    I remember my sisters and I making cookies for our parents anniversary one year and we didn’t know how to bake, but we were going to do it on our own! Instead of vanilla extract we used vanilla ice cream. Some coke insteak of baking soda, and so on… They never set up and just ended up being a runny mess, but my parents ate them anyway! It was cookie soup!

  64. Dilcia

    My favorite cookie moment was when my sister learned to make cookies in class at school. She came home made the batter and then we ate half the batter before the cookies made it into the oven. We were so sick we never ate the baked cookies!!

  65. Jenna Gruzen

    Coming home from school, my Noni (Grandma) always had new cookies made…and different kinds too! We’d go through the tub and choose the ones we wanted!

  66. PAT DELAGARZA

    MY MOM, MY SISTER AND I GET TOGETHER EVERY CHRISTMAS ALONG WITH OUR KIDS AND MAKE A BIG ASSORTMENT OF COOKIES. OUR KIDS ACTUALLY LOOK FORWARD TO IT EVERY YEAR. WE SPEND THE DAY LISTENING TO CHRISTMAS MUSIC AND BAKING ALL DAY LONG. WE ALWAYS HAVE LOTS OF FUN AND HOPEFULLY CREATING PRICELESS MEMORIES FOR OUR CHILDREN :)

  67. Brenda

    my favorite cookie memory …
    it was the christmas of 1992, our mor-mor (moms mom) had just passed away that july and we (my sister and i) had decided to make cookies that christmas. its no secret that my sister is majorly lacking in her cooking abilities but none the less we tackled mor-mors recipe box each picking out a few christmas cookies to make together and than one recipe each that we would tackle on our own.
    we had baked for days on end, making our own frosting etc and were honestly quite pleased with our creations. as we sat down during the holidays and enjoyed our homemade treats, it didnt take a brain scientist to figure out which recipe my sister tackled on her own, they were honestly the most horrid things you ever tasted but with the holiday spirit, we kept our mouth shut and you just kinda knew which cookie to avoid. leave it to my husband (soon to be at the time) to bit into a cookie that i made and comment on how good it was (now keep in mind he had no clue who did which ones), he bit into one that we had prepared together and again commented on how good the treat was, and than he took a bite out of one my sister had made and said *this tastes like cardboard* my poor sister was crushed but the rest of us were dying laughing.

  68. Maria

    Making cookies with my cousin in Calistoga, CA. I was SO impressed that she could make chocolate chip cookies without a recipe. Such fond memories!

  69. sheila

    My favorite cookie would have to be when i was pregnant with my son and my husband and i were making christmas cookies. He had all the cookies made and they would accidently break cause the baby wanted one….oh the memories:)

  70. Dawn

    My most cherished memories of cookie baking all include my Grandmother. She was the best cookie baker ever! Every visit we made to her house, and every holiday were always special because of her cookies. I think we all looked forward to her goodies more than we did the presents!
    After she passed away, I put together a cookbook for the family and named the last section
    “Little Treasures”, which ended with her family famous chocolate chip cookie. She taught me that making a great cookie was all about filling your baking with LOVE. It works almost every time! =)

  71. monica isbell

    What are my favorite cookie memories? that would be baking with my five kids, they think it is the grandest thing ever

  72. fawnice davis

    I remember baking cookies with my mom and sister usually about this time of year we staretd making choco chip, sugar, and ginger bread. We always had flour fights and fights with the batter left on the sides of the bowl. Oh and eating the raw cookie dough mmmmmm. ;)

  73. Nichole

    My favorite memory of making cookies was using glasses to form the sugar cookies instead of cookie cutters. And eating the leftover dough. I didn’t even know that cookie cutters existed for the longest time!!!

  74. denise

    my favorite memorie is teaching my 5 kids how to make cookies. every year during the ho;idays we make cookies to givge to family so one year they all wanted to help. i gave them each a special job to doand some how ended up with flour on faces, on the dog and every where you can imagine. we had such a mess going on but in the end it was worth every bit of it to see their faces and knowing that they made these cookies.

  75. When ever we went to visit my Grandma Ruby she always had 2 things waiting, her yellow cake with special frosting and the cookies with one side vanilla and one side chocolate with creme in the middle. They were store bought but they always tasted the best at Grandma’s.

  76. AMY STACKHOUSE

    My favorite memories of baking cookies is with my kids, we always make an assortment at christmas time and take them to our neighbors and give them to the school bus driver and their teachers. They like to decorate their own to make it special for the people they are giving them too. We all put on out christmas aprons and chefs hats and have the best time making memories and special treats for the ones who are special to us.

  77. tim martin

    Though I have so many fond memories of times in my moms kitchen growing up, the one that comes to my mind often is the day my sister was taking over the baking. She copied a recipe from a cookbook and she was making peanut butter cookies. Well she mixed and baked them and when they came out of the oven, they were green! Nobody new why…and nobody ate one, but I still try to bring it up now and then. Its still funny after 30 years!

  78. sarah burlew

    Making Christmas cookies with Mom Pat. Sugar Cookies, Russian Tea Balls, Cowboy Cookies, Snowballs along with several other kinds. We would make dozens of each and I was amazed at all the cookies!

  79. Savonny N

    I never made cookies with my mom or anything. My first time making cookies was about 2 years ago with my younger cousin (about 9 at the time). She was the one who actually wanted to try making oatmeal raisin cookies, found the recipe, and went to the store with her mom to buy ingredients. I remember being so amazed with her measuring skills because the recipe was for about 2 dozen and she knew how to lessen the recipe to about half a dozen. I couldn’t even figure out the measurements myself! They ended up being the best oatmeal raisin cookies I’ve ever had! (and it was made by a 9 year old! AMAZING!)

  80. shelly green

    my favorite memories of cooking were when i was a teenager at my mothers house. the house was big and drafty and at the time i didnt think i would ever miss that old house well things change my mother has passed my father is ill they lost the house and now me 4 kids later wish that we all could be in that old drafty house with the heat of the stove baking cookies

  81. Sakenah Hamdi

    My favorite memories of baking cookies is with my mom and sister. There was a time were we’d bake up a batch every couple days. The soft and hot choocolate chip cookies were so hard to resist, right out of the oven!

  82. Heather

    I went through a healthy baking phase in which I attempted to make cookies w/o fat or sugar :p Needless to say I ended up with nasty burnt rocks or tasteless biscuits in the end. That is when I returned to My great-aunts good-ole chocolate chip recipe w/ butter, sugar and all! Cookies are meant to be indulgences and taking out these essentials is just silly I now realize :)
    Cookies truly are my favorite dessert and in my house we have always had different cookies for different occasions which makes baking and partaking in these pieces of goodness that much more special.

  83. Amanda

    I always loved baking cookies with my great grandma & my cousins.

  84. Christine

    My favorite memory is making cookies with my grandma when I was young. She is the reason why I love baking!

  85. rachelle wells

    I was raised by my granny til I was 3 or so & the best memories I have were in the kitchen with her standing on my lil red stool helping bake:)

  86. Chris

    My favorite cookie memory is baking a giant cooke that was 15 inches wide and eating the whole thing.

  87. Gina Knapp

    My favorite cookie memory is baking chocolate chip cookies with my kiddos. They always “sneak” a lick of the spoon or some chocolate chips – just like I remember doing as a kid!

  88. nancy

    anytime i bake cookies, it turns an ordinary event into a memorable experience. cookies are my favorite food ever and baking cookies with friends and family is a guaranteed fun time. my most memorable moment was teaching 4 year olds the magic of making cookies–the memory of the looks on their faces when they realized that their little hands had made something delicious always makes me smile.

  89. OK I just posted about this. I was going to post about your fabulous blog anyway- so now I had a double good reason to spread the word! :)
    My favorite cookie memory- seriously– one is walking in the mall and smelling the sweet aroma of Mrs. Field’s Cookies. I loved that smell. :)
    Another was when I was like 12, and my mom was at the hospital having baby #7, and I made cookies for the family- misreading the recipe- and added like 1/2 cup of baking soda or something ridiculous — needless to say they did not turn out and I have sinced learned to make cookies the right way :) Those are just a few- I have lots of happy cookie memories.

  91. april

    my memories is baking with my kids and enjoying them right out of the oven.they love cookies!!!!!!!

  92. Connie

    my favorite memory was the first time baking cookies with my boyfriend. Instead of buying those instant bake cookie dough, we decided to start from scratch. We searched internet and tried many trials till we come to the right one…. it was funny because the cookies were either too hard, too soft, too sweet, or too salty haha

  93. Missy Keeling

    My favorite cookie moments are when my daughter and I make Christmas cookies every year. It started when she was still in diapers with her mixing the batter and now she picks out what we are going to make each day of Christmas break!

  94. Tiffany Stark

    My parents divorced when I was three and my sister was barely a few months old. After the divorce, my mom, my sister, and I moved out to California leaving my dad and his family in Idaho. My sister and I still visited twice a year, but unfortunately twice a year barely cuts it with family.

    However, some of my most cherished memories with my grandma on my dad’s side were in the kitchen baking cookies. Every time we visited, my grandma made sure that there was a day set aside to bake, just the three of us. I still love spending time baking cookies; it always reminds me of the times spent in my grandma’s kitchen.

  95. Carrie R.

    My favorite cookie memory actually happened this past Christmas. I wanted to bake my family some cookies for Christmas and I scowered the internet for a great cookie recipe. I ended up going with an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe that got rave reviews. When that first batch of cookies came out of the oven, the aroma was heavenly. And the first bite was an out of this world experience. They were simply the best cookies I had ever made. I still get requests for them.

  96. Kirsten

    My favorite memory isn’t an old one but some of the new memories I have made while baking sugar cookies or chocolate chip cookies with my 4 yr old daughter.

  97. CherylAnne

    So many wonderful memories baking cookies, from when I was growing up to now, baking cookies with my six children. One of my favorite times is when it rains. We always love having warm fresh cookies on stormy days when we can’t be outside.

  98. Sherry Knight

    My favorite memories involve me and my Mom making cookies when I was little. Mom has been gone for 3 years now. I still miss her so much…I love you Mom! BTW…I’ve never had a Mrs. Field cookie before, would love to win this prize! Thank you!

  99. Marsha

    Making cookies with my girls when they were little.

  100. MONICA W

    My favorite cookie memory was the the heart shaped cookie my husband (back then boyfriend) had given me on our first Valentine’s Day together and now 15 years later we are still together. Thanks Mrs. Fields

    The first time I baked cookies alone was when I was about nine. I needed to take some kind of treat to school the next day so I decided on cookies.
    I didn’t mix them together myself, they came in a refridgerated log of dough. I even undercooked them. But that didn’t stop everyone in my class from eating the whole plate.

  102. Steven Lee

    One time in college I wanted to bake cookies. I had the dough, but being a guy with sparse kitchen supplies, I didn’t have a cookie pan, so I used a small skillet, unscrewed the handle and made a giant pizzookie. I am totally clueless about cooking and I forgot to put some spray on the bottom so when it was done, suffice it to say, I had to eat the cookie out of the pan. it wasn’t the nicest looking thing, but it was pretty tasty.

  103. Amanda Maupin

    My favorite cookie memory is making Christmas Sugar cookies and decorating them with lots of different icing and candy with my younger brothers and sisters and then leaving them out for Santa :)

  104. Britt Rolando

    Baking sugar cookies with my husband for his birthday the first year we were married because it was all we could afford to do. It was so fun!

  105. Stefanie

    My fondest cookie memories come from when I was a kid and I used to visit my grandmother because we would always bake together in the kitchen. She would let me help stir the batter and add the ingredients and as the cookies baked, it always gave us a chance to talk and smile together. The cookies always came out tasting delicious but sometimes the baking was even more fun, especially when she would let me lick the beaters when we were done mixing the batter.

  106. Beckey DeVore

    My What are your favorite cookie memories is my mom, my 2 sisters, and my brother in my grandmothers kitchen whipping up all our favorite cookie recpies, and having a flour fight untill the cookies are done, and then sitting around on the front porch munching on all our favorites with a nice cold glass of milk.

  107. Marcie

    Love to bake Christmas cookies with my daughters and my mom…reminds me of being a kid…

  108. Beth

    I used to love to make red velvet cupcakes with my great grandma’s secret recipe…my daughters have tried to healthify it over the years…I love that a part of a history can be handed down through generations….

  109. John

    My favorite memory is when my then girlfriend made me cookies for our first date. They were and still are the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had. She’s now my wife, and my love for her and those cookies is almost equal. ;)

  110. Lea-Ann White

    We keep a holiday baking journal where we log what we are baking each Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is so much fun to read through there and remember the smells and emotions from each year.

  111. Kristy Freeman

    My favorite cookie memory is making Christmas cookies from scratch every year, many different kinds with my 4 girls and giving them to those we love the most!!

  112. Julie Cutshaw

    My most favorite cookie memories were when we came home from school off the school bus and could smell cookies mom had baked & would ask for many but only get 2 each because she said it would ruin our dinner.Back in the 60′s my mom only stayed home for a few years until we 3 sisters started high school so those years of her being home when we got home were precious to me, because we got to enjoy her baking, doing projects etc. We never knew what the surprize cookies in the cookie jar would be so we would guess before she would let us reach in to get our 2 cookies each. Money was tight back then but my mom knew how to stretch a dollar & make great desserts & snacks for us to enjoy. Those were the days when you could go next door to borrrow a cup sugar or butter from your neighbor , which we were sent to do from time to time or or neighbors would do the same. I miss my mom so much who died of bone cancer at a too early age, so thank you for this welcome memorie of my long ago childhood. Now I want to go back cookies with my grandson :-)

    My favorite moment is baking cookies with my daughters on Christmas Eve. I did this with my mother as a child and I loved it. Seeing them laugh and making a mess is priceless to me. They cant wait until it is time to start making them. Its brings back good memory’s with my mother as a child.

  114. VALERIE

    making cookies with my little sisters when we were all kids.

  115. valerie

    stealing cookies from the cookie jar.

  116. Leah Walker

    I was always the cookie from scratch maker in our house. For some reason that was one thing I did well. I remember one or another of my family members asking me to make some homemade chocolate chip cookies almost every day. I swear that’s why my husband married me. Lol. Still, to this day, when I ask what I need to bring to a family gathering they tell me, guess what, my chocolate chip cookies. Hmmm, all this talk about cookies made me hungry. I may just go make some now.

  117. Michelle Hankins

    My grandma’s house was always smellng sweet of baked goods. Cookies, pies, candies etc…. Of course as a child I LOVED going over there. Every christmas all the grandchildren would come over and decorate what seemed to be 100 cookies a peice. We would make gift baskets for our friends and hand them out the following monday. My grandma passed away before meeting my children but this tradition is being carried on by me. I cherish those times spend with the most wonderful woman on earth

  118. Diane

    My favorite cookie memory was baking cookies at Grandma’s house. Every holiday season, she loved making lots of different types of cookies- sugar cookies, rum balls, lots more. I now carry on the tradition with my son!

  119. Whitney Sims

    When I was a teenager we had a family rule. 2 batches of cookies. I remember making cookies and putting signs all over them “DON”T EAT!” “These are for SCHOOL!” “STAY AWAY!” “This means YOU!” Even with two batches I had to tag them. Cookies have always been a family favorite.

  120. This is fun! Ok, my favorite cookie memory has to be my 6th birthday party. Six of my closest girlfriends were invited, and we sat around my kitchen table frosting and decorating sugar cookies. I felt so grown up, decorating cookies any way I wanted all while visiting with my friends. I have such vivid memories of this party- I can still remember the dress I was wearing! And the cookies were so good! To this day I still adore making sugar cookies- now with my own children.

  121. My favorite memory involves making cookies and baked apples with the neighborhood kids while my mom watched with a smile and lent us her advice. No one ever needed tips on devouring them fresh out of the warm oven.

  122. rachel Ihnen

    my favorite memory was when i was growing up, baking cookies with my family and decorating them for the holidays! My family always made me feel so proud of my artwork on them *even though they were awful! =)*

  123. Renee

    My favorite memories are the ones I am creating with my two baby girls. We do Santa Cut out Cookies for the past two Christmas’ and we have so much fun with cutters, icing, sprinkles…I just sit back and enjoy watching them make a mess. Love it! I hope they treasure these memories as much as I do.

  124. bibef anderson

    i remember making the peanut butter blossums with my mom around christmas, my brother and i got to roll them in the suger, and put the kisses on and watch them melt!!
    and spsritz cookies, trying to turn that press to the perfect spot and it almost NEVER worked, the dough was alewatys delicious though! HAHA!!!!!

  125. Mary Cunningham

    My Favorite memory is helping my grandmother and my mom make cookies for my class party at school. This was so much fun as I helped decorate the cookies for all my friends.

  126. Kimberly Davidson

    My fave memories were with my grandma who I lived with for a few years when my parents got divorced. I think about those times often. I miss my MeMe so very much. I try to this day to bake and even cook like her. My only good memories as a child was with her. I Wish she was still here.

  127. Caity Pevey

    My FAVE cookie memory would have to be making sugar cookies with my Mom to fill tins at Christmas time. We would make our own colored sugar and sprinkle over the top of the cookies. Laughing and having fun enjoying the spirit of Christmas!! ***Love those Memories!!***

  128. lilian

    the first i ever baked cookies was in 5th grade at a slumber party at my friend emily’s house. we made snickerdoodles all by ourselves! they turned out great and we ate WAY too many of them. =)

  129. My favorite cookie memory would have to be when my parents would bake cookies whenever friends came over. It was a GREAT excuse to have company!

  130. Chantell

    My greatest moments of baking cookies is with my grandma she used to let me and my sister help her put everything in a bowl and then help her put them on a pan! then of course after they where done cooking we would decorate them…The best moments that i can remember and gotta keep a hold of them for my grandma is not with us today but just to carry the memories on and tell my kids the stories as we bake cookies together now!!

  131. Anne

    I remember making snickerdoodles with my mom. She’d always let me roll them in cinnamon and sugar. So fun!

  132. Jen

    My family wasn’t big on baking while I was growing up. But when I had a family of my own – 3 boys and a girl – my daughter wanted to bake cookies. In fact she says she wants to be pastry chef when she grows up :). I loved it when she would sweet talk me into baking something with her. We usually ended up making chocolate chip cookies. The boys help by setting up the table and pouring the milk. The house smelled so good and we all get to sit down as a family and enjoy the fresh-baked cookies…down to the last bite!

  133. I remember our kitchen and dining room being covered in flour, sugar, chocolate chips, frosting and cookies. I don’t know how many people we though we had to feed with these cookies but we made more than enough every year. I continue to do this with our children now and we’re sure to donate some and spread the cookie love!

  134. Lori

    My favorite memory is making cookies with my Grandma. Especially holiday shaped sugar cookies. I now really enjoy watching my son as he makes these memories with his Grandma!

  135. Turi

    My favorite memories are of baking cookies at Christmas time. My Grandmother, mom, sister and I get together every year watch “White Christmas” and bake batches and batches of cookies!

  136. Amy

    One of my favorite memories involving cookies is Christmas time at Mama’s. She would make dozens of different kinds of cookies. She would store them all in old fruitcake tins and put them on her washer and dryer. It was not Christmas until we tasted her various cookies. All of us had our favorites, and none of them were the same as the other. She’s gone now, but I hold on to those memories dearly.

  137. Kim Newcomb

    Baking cookies with my son, every time we fight over who gets to lick the spoon or the bowl!!!! Its a fun time that we share together!!!!!!

  138. amanda beasley

    There are so many great cookie moments in my life! Baking with my mom (who passed away in 2000) has to be right up there at the top! I remember going through this phase where I refused to eat eggs or anything with eggs in it, so my mom would get creative when she was baking and when it came time to add the eggs she would need me to go get her something from another room, every single time! I never figured out until I was older and actually started baking with her that she was doing that to to trick me, so i would eat whatever she was baking! LOL This still cracks me up, she was so sneaky!

  139. sheri spencer

    My favorite cookie memory is of baking around the holidays. With Christmas music playing in the background we would stay up most of the night baking a variety of wonderful cookies. It is so much fun to bake and package homemade treats to give to family and friends!

  140. Carly

    My favorite memory is baking cookies with my mom. We always baked for every special occasion and even just when we got cravings.

  141. Mari

    We love to bake “witch fingers” and “troll toe” cookies every (week before) Halloween together. We play Halloween music, carve pumpkins and top it off with scary stories, cookies and hot chocolate around the fire. Our favorite baking memories ever.

  142. When I was little and sick, my grandmother watched me. If it wasn’t a tummy issue, she would ask me what kind of cookie I’d like to have. What was my favorite cookie to smell from the oven and eat nice and warm? Sugar cookies, of course! And she made plenty of them, even ones to share with my not-so-sick brothers for after school. I will always remember those times. Grandma M. always made being sick a good time!

  143. Lyndsie

    The year I got married, my husband and I couldn’t really afford to buy Christmas gifts for our family and friends. So we made dozens and dozens of cookies (all different types) and that was what we gave. This is my favorite cookie memory because it’s a reminder that love is in all the small things.

  144. Crystal

    Favorite cooking making memory…. every Christmas my mom and I have a cookie baking day. I look forward to it every year and am so excited that this yar my daughter will participate!

  145. Lucy

    Stealing cookies from the cookie jar–they were also ways so delish!

  146. LINDSAY YAZZIE

    My favority memory- is being able to spend time with the family as we cut, baked, frosted and decorated sugar cookies for almost every holiday.

  147. Will

    Baking with my brothers and sisters, and sneaking bites of cookie dough!

  148. Angela S.

    My favorite memory dealing with cookies is baking around the holidays. Holidays always gave us an excuse to get in the kitchen and bake up something special. I remember doing it with my mother and with my sisters, and now we do it with my nieces. It’s truly a tradition that I hope continues on.

  149. Melissa

    I love to make cookies with my two children around the holidays. They each get a beater to lick. The way the house smells make them very excited to get to taste the first one all warm from the oven. When they are excited that makes me happy.

  150. Steven Hechler

    Going to my Ms Fields cookie store at the mall & buying a large cookie and not sharing it with anyone.

  151. My favorite cookie moment has been teaching some of our students from Asia how to bake cookies. We would explain to them each direction and watch them mix the flour, sugar, eggs, etc. Our recipe called for one full egg and an egg yolk, so one of our students from Kyrgyzstan poked a hole in the bottom and top of an egg and blew the white out.

    After the cookies were made they were thrilled. Most say they didn’t like sweet desserts but all of them said they loved the warm cookies they made for the first time!

  152. Tonia L.

    My cookie memory has to be baking cookies with my mom when I was a child. She was the one who taught me how to bake. She showed me what to put into the dough and how to make different variations of the recipe. I became so good at baking that my selection of cookies became one of my staples at our Christmas family gatherings. One year I wasn’t going to do them any more because it was a project all in its own. My grandfather found out that I wasn’t going to be baking the cookies and he actually was a little sad and said that he had been looking forward to them. My grandfather never asked for much, so who wouldn’t want to get back in the kitchen and bake. To this day, although I’ve now moved almost 500 miles away, I still send cookies home every year and everyone seems to enjoy it.

  153. Amber Godown

    Making cookies for my boyfriend when is was his birthday.

  154. My favorite cookie memory was the first time I helped my mom make candy cane (twisted) Christmas cookies. They were sugar cookie with a tad of peppermint flavor and red food coloring in one of the twists……yummy!

  155. Esmeralda Gomez-Arroyo

    my favorite memory is the one i’m making down with my 2 daughter and baking cookies… they both love cooking with me and love licking the bowl and whisk (so do I, lol)they are priceless

  156. Joelle F. D.

    My favorite cookie memory was when i was younger and until now, every year around christmas my grandma and I make all different types of cookies! My favorite are chocolate chip of course!

  157. Helen

    I was a little girl visiting my Grandmother on the farm, and one afternoon my Grandmother said to me, “Let’s make some cookies”. She let me help her measure the flour and she had me get the milk and butter from the refrigerator. This was a big deal for me. She spoon dropped the batter on the cookie sheet and in no time, the cookies were ready to take from the oven. The cookies were not thin and crisp, but thicker than what I had been use to having… more like cake cookies. We had a glass of milk that afternoon and some warm cookies just out of the oven. I thought they were soooo good.

  158. Jayne

    When my oldest daughter (now 25 yrs. old) was not quite 2 we started making cookies every year for Christmas. We would make all kinds off different varieties. As my other girls came along they joined in plus a friend would come and join on occassion. It was something they looked forward to every year.

  163. Jen V.

    My best cookie memories are of me and my mom baking cookies at christmas time. We would roll out sugar cookies and cut them in to all kinds of christmas shapes. I could hardly wait for them to bake so we could decorate them. I will always remember the way the house filled with the fresh baked smell. Whenever I smell cookies baking, I think of christmas. Now that I have a daughter, I can’t wait for the 3 of us to mae christmas cookies together.

  164. Michele Howell

    Just before the holidays mom would start baking batches of cookies and other yummy goodies for our neighbors, friends and family. The house would smell so yummy, I loved it.

  165. Lisa L

    My favorite cookie memory had to be when I was a kid at the mall with my mom and I saw the Mrs.Field’s cookie store front. In the display was the largest cookie cake I had ever seen in my life and I remember it being decorated for Christmas and wondered if that could be my birthday present.

  166. My favorite cookie memories are being made right now. My kids LOVE baking cookies. I measure the ingredients and they get to add to the bowl and stir. (They also like sneaking chocolate chips out of the bowl into their mouths!) We try to make a batch about once every couple months!

  167. Shelly Reynolds

    Cookies are truly love in food form. It is the time you spend baking (or ordering!) that people can appreciate the love that you are sending!

  168. Deborah Linville

    I always remember, and loved making cookies with my Mother each year growing up. We make cookies for every holiday and party!
    We would make a different set of cookies for the special times of the year…pineapple cookies in the summer and carrot cookies in the fall.
    We make many different kinds in the Christmas holiday season, and package and ship them to friends and family whom live far away.
    Cookies are always loved and welcome!

    My favorite memories are baking cookies with my daughter which is now 12 and we have carried on tradition of baking whenever it is raining, snowing (not anymore because I live in Florida) or any gloomy day when we decide we just want to vegge out. Good times with my girls. They make a mess, but what the heck it’s fun…

  171. Mary N.

    My favorite cookie memories are of my mom making up cookie trays for teacher gifts at Christmas. She used empty boxes from Fanny Farmer chocolates. ANd filled them with butter spritz cookies and chocolate chip cookies.

  172. Billie R

    My brother was at camp, sent a letter to my Dad saying that the food was horrible. My son and I decided that they should have cookies. My son and I made a huge batch of snickerdoodles and monstrously huge monster cookies and had sent them off to camp. We were told they were a big hit with the whole camp. kekagel(at)yahoo.com

  173. My favorite cookie memory was when I became a step-mom. My first child had never helped make cookies before. He had a blast and that helped me bond with him. I let him do almost everything with just verbal coaching since he was already 8 years old. He felt proud of himself. To this day he still enjoys cooking.

  174. Virgie

    My favorite memories are making cookies with my mom. She would make dozens and dozens of cookies for the holidays. And homemade bread. Mmm. I wish I had the recipe for her “nut horn” cookies, but my favorites were lady fingers.

  175. reespace

    My favorite cookie memory is of my mom, warming up the oven (so the kitchen was warm & cozy), & then she would call us all out to assist her with the ingredients to make toll house cookies. I can put myself back to that kitchen scene in a heartbeat, & that was 45 to 55 years ago!!!

  176. Ruby Wishnietsky

    I’ve loved cookies for a LONG time (who hasn’t?!) but my favorite cookie memory is from just over one year ago. I was in Austin, visiting my old college roommate for my birthday. My boyfriend had also flown in from Nashville to spend our birthdays (his is two days before mine) together. My actual birthday was a quite affair. We hung out at Barton Springs all day and then had Indian food – my favorite – for my birthday dinner. We weren’t really sure what to do that night, as we had gone out and “partied” the evening before. So we just went back to my friend’s apartment and watched a movie. Then, there was a knock at the door – which was rather surprising at 10 o’clock at night. I answered it and there was tattooed and pierced UT student with a huge box of cookies and a quart of ice cream. Apparently there’s a place in Austin that delivers fresh-baked cookies and other goodies until 2AM! Well, what can I say – it was magical. Feasting on the birthday surprised my friend and boyfriend had so sneakily set up was marvelous. Much better than birthday cake!

  177. Nancy

    My favorite memoires are baking cookies and bars with both my Grandma’s in the 50′s, old farm recipies. One I love to share with my Girl Scouts at cookie time is a sugar cookie stuffed with mince meat filling or cherrie pie or apple pie filling. Grandma made them for the farm hands and I had them for my school lunchpail. Today’s girls think they’re quite unusual but love them.

  178. Linda

    Ohhhh, the memory of coming home from school, during the winter months, to the smell of mom’s freshly baked snickdoodles, there cooling, on the counter. A fantastic and welcoming snack waiting with a tall glass of milk. Life couldn’t get any better than that.

  179. Melanie D

    My favorite Funny memory was the first time I tried to make chocolate chip cookies in the microwave. This was many years ago when microwaves first cam out. I was winging it with the cooking time. I took out the cookies which looked great only to find out that they were hard as marble and fused to the paper plate that I tried cooking them on. I never tried to microwave them again. I stick with the oven.

  180. My favorite cookie memory is making Christmas sugar cookies each year with my wife. I actually really enjoy decorating the cookies with the various colors of sugar and toppings. A great part of the holiday season!

  181. Cece Egeler

    My favorite memory is making Christmas cookies with my mom in the warm cozy kitchen while a snow storm was raging outside!

  182. MY favorite memory is making chocolate chip cookies with my daughter for the first time. She was 2 and couldn’t help but put her little hands in the dough and graba handful and stick it right in her mouth. :)

  183. Jennifer Miescher

    My favorite moment is baking with the kids – especially for the holidays!

  184. Gaile

    My favourite cookie memory is having “freshness checks” for the chocolate chips. It seemed appropriate to make sure the chocolate chips were completely up to our standards. *ahem* Sometimes we had to double or triple check just to make sure those chips were just right.

    I also loved seeing my children proudly learn how to break the eggs so that we ended up with more egg than shell in the dough! :)

  185. kathy

    My best cookie memories are the ones of my Grandnmothers teaching me their homemade cookie recipes. As a kid, I loved to watch them cook, so when I hit 6, they started teaching me how to cook, and their special recipes. I think the best part about learning the cookie recipes was sneaking little bites of raw cookie dough. :)

  186. Crystal

    My favorite cookie memories are of baking chocolate chip cookies after school and filling the house with the aroma of fresh baked cookies so that when my dad would walk through the door, his face would just light up when that waft of “cookies” would hit his face :) Of course this was after some trial and error .. like mistaking the “t” with a “T” of baking powder or salt or … good memories!

  187. sara

    my favorite cookie making memmory is the time i made cookies and put table spoon salt and baking powder instead of teaspoon!! they where hard as rocks!! but my 90 year old toothless grandpa ate everyone of them, he said they are good if you just soak them in some coffee!! now that is love and to this day i smile everytime i think of this.

  188. Making chocolate chip cookies for my Dad, with my Granddaughter, his great Granddaughter, She was so proud of her accomplishment and it brought back memories of working in the kitchen with my Grandmother, and all the delicous smells. Oh what wonderful memories you have helped me to remember. Thanks

  189. Ali

    baking cookies with my Grandparents. I really hope to win this for them. They love Mrs Fields and really love their cookies, cake and more!

  190. BONNIE R.

    I always will remember the look on my father’s face when I arrived at his house with a basket full of Christmas cookies each year. I know that he knew that I would bring them but the look was always the same: full of delight. This Friday, Oct. 1 he passed away. Oh how I wish I could “surprise” him with a batch of cookies.

  191. BONNIE R

    I meant to say This Friday, 3 YEARS AGO….

  192. Sam

    Baking cookies and other scrumptious treats during the holiday season with my grandmother, mom, and sister. The best part was eating the cookie dough. Mom always told me that if I kept eating, there wouldn’t be enough left to even make a batch of cookies.

  193. Making cookies with my children for movie night,we always make a variety….from no bake to peanut butter…we always try to bring in something new to the mix every once in awhile

  194. Shirley

    I don’t have any baking memories as a kid. I do have 2 daughters who are 5 and 3 and can’t wait to really bake with them.

  195. Lodice Guffin

    Nothing smells as good as cookies baking, and nothing tastes as good as chocolate chip cookies. No wonder Mrs. Fields is such a hit. It’s a marvelous idea!

  196. Favorite cookie baking memory? I remember making them with my best friend a lot, either her house or mine, but we made them all the time.
    Also remember–my mom used to keep a bay leaf in the big container of flour to keep it fresh and one time I made chocolate chip cookies and didn’t realize the bay leaf went in the cookies. Not a pleasant taste!

  197. Kristan

    I consider cookies a social lubricant. Doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, it’s a favorite amongst all. Put some cookies out in my home and I guarantee you they won’t last long. Mrs. Field’s cookies are amongst our top favorites!

  198. erin Pyle

    My favorite cookie memories are baking cookies for the holidays with my mom. It was the one time we could bake as many cookies as we want to. I really enjoyed gathering all the cookies together and delivering to friends. The joy on there faces were priceless. Of coarse at the end of the night eating them with a big glass of milk was the best!!!

  199. Andrea

    Best childhood cookie memory: baking up huge batches of choco chip cookies with my sisters (& eating lots of cookie dough), wrapping them up in decorative tins and baskets, & going around the neighborhood dropping them off as Christmas gifts!

  200. Monica

    My favorite kindergarten memory was when my Mom brought freshly baked cookies to my classroom for my birthday – I was the happiest kid at school that day & my classmates were pretty excited too!

  201. Sharon Hankins

    My favorite memories start with cookie-pressing buttery Spritz at Christmastime with my mom…and my two daughters and I always have made homemade cookies from her recipes, new ones we’ve found along the way, and an occasional from-scratch gingerbread house together. Now, one of my girls is married – she baked Ginger Krakles just tonight for her book discussion group!

  202. caryn

    Every Christmas my mom made her own frosting and we mixed MANY different colors. and we got out every holiday cookie cutter we had and tripled the sugar cookie recipe and baked away. Then all the kids went in the dining room and decorated cookies and laughed for hours! then we got to sneak in there and eat them for days

  203. Jacqueline S

    My favorite memories are baking cookies with my grand daughter to sell at the local farmers’ market. We laugh and have such a great time bonding and creating the cutest decorated sugar cookies! Our cookies sell out quickly at each Saturday market.

  204. Karen

    My favorite cookie memory is sneaking them from our “turtle” cookie jar as a young child. After all these years, I still get hungry for chocolate chip cookies every time I see a turtle! LOL.

  205. Erin

    My favorite cookie memory was having my cool big sister teach me how to make a classic chocolate chip cookie, when I was 6 years old. It was such a good time and the kitchen was such a mess but hey–we were 6 and 10 and we didn’t care about the mess.

  206. Patricia C.

    Favorite cookie memory is making French cookies every Christmas since I was a little girl. This has been a family tradition passed down by my great-grandmother. The cookies resemble a thin waffle or a thick pizzelli and are made on a Belgian cookie iron. These cookies were made once a year, because the irons were cast iron, laid open like a book, with 2 long handles and you had to cook each side of the cookie on a stove top burner…it was hard work to get through a single batch. Not to mention a single batch of dough required mixing by hand, lest you burned up the motor on your mixer. Much easier today with the electric irons & Kitchen-Aid mixers. :) Everyone loves these cookies!

    favorite cookie memory was baking cookies with my best friend of the time when we were in 3rd grade (or so). We were excited to be “independent” and baking on our own; we finished combining ingredients and tried the dough–only to realize we had forgotten to add flour!

    I have fond memories of making cookies with my grandma when I was younger. She had many recipes that we would use with fun gadgets. My grandma recently passed away and I inherited her cookie gun, the rolling pin to make krumkakke and tins to make sandbakkels.

    My favorite cookie memories are baking during Christmas with my mom. We would always make a few dozen gingerbread, butter cookies, and jam drop cookies for the family.

    One Mother’s Day when my brother and I were 10 and 8, respectively, we decided to make a giant heart-shaped chocolate chip cookie for my mom. The recipe called for oleo. We were stumped…so we added mayonnaise. The cookie came out very cute, but the flavor was a bit unusual!

    I remember my first type of cookie was suppose to be chocolate chip, but at 8 years old I did not know the difference between TBS and tsp. None the less my cookies did not turn out. My mom came and saved the day

    I absolutely loved making cookies w/ my mom! I would sneek the cookie dough and she would always say the same thing, “you’re going to get sick” or now you have carbally marbles…good times! Now, I make them w/ my girls and sometimes not a lot of dough is baked, we just sneek dough and laugh :]

    I don’t have many memories of making cookies growing up, though my Nana did make a mean chocolate chip cookie. I’m now making memories with my son that I hope will last a lifetime. We made the sugar cookie dough, cut out shapes, baked them, and had the intent of giving them to relatives. During the decorating process though, every cookie seemed to be missing a bite sized piece!

    My favorite memory/tradition is that every time my kids visit my step mom (grandma) or she comes to visit them they make cookies together. It is something everyone looks forward to!

    My favorite memory is when I was a child my mom would make chocolate chip cookies. My favorite were her chocolate chip bar cookies. I’d come home from school and you could smell them when you opened the door! My older brothers and I would fight over who’d get the first ones out of the oven!

  217. I met a boy at school, and we hung out a few times on campus. One day, he texted me when he got back to his car that he had gotten a parking ticket. I felt terrible (even though he had gotten the ticket that morning, before we met up!) so I baked him a batch of peanut butter cookies and wrote a silly card. I gave them to him the next day and it really cheered him up. That boy totally loves me now. Best cookies I ever baked.

    My parents moved to florida from Ohio right after we were married. And every year we would go down at Christmas. They made so many cookies !!! We have a large family and they made everyones favorite,
    from sugar cookies to date bars. It became a tradition we all loved it.

    When we learned to bake cookies in Home Ec I used to have so much fun with all of my friends. My friend Jannie always burned her food and Jessica always for to put something in. Of course, my cookies always came out perfect!

  220. Debbie Welchert

    My favorite memory is making christmas cookies with my daughter. We would stay up half the night baking and then frosting cookies.

  221. jeanette winnie

    i remember my grandma in the kitchen me right beside her smashing the choco chips in to the batter “using your hands means more love” as she always said,
    of course i always ate more dough then cookies, we would bake so many cookies the the counter tops were full of cooling racks:)

    My mother has a recipe for chocolate cookies that she got from her grandmother. My great-grandmother used to make these cookies for my grandfather when he was a child. There’s no measurement on the cocoa, it just says “to taste”. I love making this recipe. Mother always told me I can make them as light or as heavy on the chocolate as I want. Even if I messed it up, the goof up batches were still good. I can’t wait until my girls are old enough and I can share the history of this recipe with them and let them experiment on what their favorite level of chocolate is!

  223. My fav memories are making cookies with my step mom when I was little and now she likes to make them with my own kids….traditions are the BEST!

  224. Jill

    After school snacks! My mom was the best on the block. All my friends loved to come to my house where we would be greeted with the warm heady aroma of freshly baked cookies.

  225. Geraldine C

    Making Christmas cookies with my 2 Children, we would set aside one day and make decorated sugar cookies, and usually 6 different other kinds.

  226. Julie Riskus

    I love making homemade cookies, problem is I don’t seem to make it far past the dough! Yummy!

  227. Darla

    One great memory was learning how to make cookies as a little girl, trying to do it on my own, and mistaking 1tsp baking soda for 1cup baking soda….Oops. ;) I’ve since made thousands upon thousands of cookies (with MUCH more accuracy) and now have the joy of teaching my own little ones how to bake and use old family recipes. Mistakes or not, there is ALWAYS a hefty amount of love added in!

    I keep the tradition of baking cookies going with my children. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of my grandma and I making cookies. She lived in such a small house and her kitchen was extra small, there would be ingredients, dough, baking sheets, and cookies everywhere. She was always patient with me and guided me through the recipes. When I think back, I can still smell the sweetness.
    It is/was those small moments, like baking cookies that mean so much. I think that’s why I enjoy baking cookies with my children, no matter how big the mess!

  229. Lindsey S.

    My favorite cookie memory is making cookies with my mom at Christmas time. We would always make a variety of cookies and treats to take to our neighbors and friends as a Christmas treat. It always took forever to make all of the cookies, but it was always a lot of fun to spend time time with my mom.

  230. Sharen Johnson

    My twin sister and I surprise each other with baked goods on Birthday’s and during the holidays. Our family members are our ‘true’ testers and are always willing to volunteer! One year while visiting family members who were baking, there was no chance to save cookies for giving – we ate them as soon as they came out of the oven (what is better than a freshly baked cookie and a glass of cold milk?); we had to wait until we went back home and baked our own!

  231. Becky Horn

    My favorite cookie memories are just getting cookies period. We grew up kinda poor and snacks were few and far between.

  232. michele giampietro

    My fave cookie memory is when I was very young, around 4 or 5 & I would help my mom slice & bake cookies. I can remember the smell wafting through the whole house. It was just a very warm & cozy feeling knowing soon that we’d be enjoying sugar, chocolate chip or whatever we’d made!

  233. Mary McMenamy

    my favorite memory was when my son was about and we made a batch of christmas cookies boy was my kitchen a disaster area but what a great memory he wore most of the icing

  234. When my baked cookies with my
    mom for an elementary school project.

  235. ANN*H

    My favorite memories are of me and my mom staying up all night baking cookies for the Christmas holidays. We made about 6 different kinds and stored them in big tins so we had lots for later on We made everyones favorite kind.

  236. Julie

    My favorite cookie memory is when my Grandpa took out a bag of Grandma’s homemade cookies from the freezer. Which always had a variety of cookies such as chocolate chip, apricot, peanut butter, date filled, and oatmeal raisin.

  237. There were many favorite cookie memories simply because I love cookies. I love making cookies with my 3 kids for Santa and other occasions. Also I remember as a teenager working in the mall by the cookie store. It was the most awesome smell when they were baking cookies. Delicious!!

  238. Debbie Donez

    I love our annual Christmas cookie baking bonanza. It is one week of daily baking to give treats to all our friends and neighbors as a way of saying happy holidays!
