  • Katie’s Christmas Cookies Recipe author Katie Kapp notes that you can leave out the chopped nuts in this recipe “if someone in the house has braces.” To make a bar cookie, grease a 10-by-15-inch jelly roll pan. Spread prepared dough evenly in the pan. Bake about 20 minutes until golden brown. Cool on rack. Cut into bars. Don’t overcook these. You want a soft, butterscotch brownie texture. From “The Raleigh Moravian Church Cookbook,” (2002). 2 1/4 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup rolled oats 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup light brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 large eggs 1 (12-ounce bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 cup butterscotch chips (or more if you like) 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, optional HEAT oven to 375 degrees. COMBINE flour, baking soda, salt, rolled oats, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Set aside. BEAT butter, sugars and vanilla until creamy in a large bowl. Beat in eggs one at a time. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Using a spoon, stir in chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and nuts, if desired. DROP by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes until light golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on pan 2 minutes, then remove to racks. Yield: 8 dozen cookies

Two weeks ago, I asked if any readers had a copy of a recipe for Katie’s Cookies that ran in the paper several years ago. A reader had lost her copy and I couldn’t locate it in our archives. Two readers responded with a recipe for Katie’s Christmas Cookies. The recipe appeared in a 2002 story by former longtime food columnist Helen Moore about the Raleigh Moravian Church cookbook, which at the time was new.

Since the recipe for a spiced cookie with oatmeal and chocolate and butterscotch chips was so intriguing that readers clipped it out and saved it all these years, I thought I’d share it with you again. Enjoy!
