Q&E Cookies

Welcome to this week's Friday's Five Favorites!  This week (as they usually do) completely got away from me.  The days and nights all seemed to run together and I can't even believe the week is almost over!  Lately, it seems like there are never enough hours in the day to get everything I need and want to get done.  I think most people feel this way at some point, but at the same time we have a desire to do certain things, such as make a fun treat for an after school snack or family activity.  Because of this I decided this week's five favorites would be QUICK & EASY cookies for just such occasions.  I must add, that quick and easy are two of my favorite words in the dictionary!

1. We'll start with something new!  Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip!  I know what you're thinking, "that's not a cookie" but remember this in my blog and I make the decisions! :)  This fun dip can be whipped up in 10 minutes and tastes a whole lot like cookie dough.  It's so good nobody is even going to notice the difference.

 Here's what you'll need:

1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 8 oz block of cream cheese
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
3/4 cup of mini chocolate chips

Start by melting the butter over medium heat, once the butter is almost completely melted add in the brown sugar and mix well.  Once the brown sugar has dissolved mix in the vanilla, then set it aside.  Next cream the cream cheese and powdered sugar together using a mixer.  Then add the butter/sugar mixture to the cream cheese and cream again.  Now all you have to do is finish it off by adding the chocolate chips! Piece of cake!

You can serve this divine dip with vanilla wafers, graham crackers, or almost any type of fruit.  It's the perfect after school snack or fun to take to a potluck party!

2. Easy Snickerdoodles!

Oh how I love the simplicity of these tasty treats.  They are made from a cake mix and need very little help.  They are soft and go perfect with milk!  In general cake mix cookies are always a great quick and easy cookies, you usually only have to add some oil and eggs and then you're good to go.  For this full recipe go here.

3. No Bake Oatmeal Cookies!

These were always my mom's go to quick and easy cookie, therefore we ate a lot of these growing up and I'm not complaining!  These are especially great for summer when you don't want to add to the heat in the house by turning on the stove.  Go here for the recipe!

4. Tortilla Cookies!

I'm not sure these could technically qualify as a cookie but at our house we call them a cookie and since this is my blog they will be considered a cookie! These are one of the best "quick treats"! You can throw one together in just a few minutes and they are also dirt cheap!  The full instructions are here.

5. Homemade Oreo Cookies!

These delectables are Many Many Hats most popular cookie and for good reason.  They are also made from a cake mix and if you want to make them even easier you can cheat and use a store bought cream cheese frosting as well.  These cookies are also always a hit at parties and bake sales! This is a recipe you won't want to miss out on, so go here!
