Cooky Jar Favorites from Sunset Readers


Cookies you can count on that's what these simple-looking (and simple-to-make) favorites prove to be. Each of these four recipes, all suggested by readers, earned excellent marks at Sunset taste panels. Letters sent with some recipes said the cookies were often kept on hand, ready for snacking.

The first cooky is actually a tiny brownie baked in a paper cup. Mashed bananas make the next cooky moist and flavorful. Rolled oats give wholesome character to the last two.

Remember if you have only one oven and bake two pans of cookies at a time, alternate pan positions about halfway through baking for even browning. Wipe pans clean between batches.

All the cookies keep well at room temperature for a few days if packed airtight. But they stay fresh-tasting and keep their texture best when stored in the freezer.

Brownie Bites

1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter or margarine

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 large eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour About 40 walnut halves

In a 2- to 3-quart pan, stir butter and chocolate over lowest heat until melted. Remove pan from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in flour.

Spoon batter into paper-lined tiny (1 1/2-in.-diameter) muffin cups, filling cups almost to the top. Place a walnut half on top of batter in each cup.

Bake in a 325[deg] oven until tops look dry and feel firm when lightly touched, about 20 minutes.

Let brownies cool in pan 10 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool. Serve warm or cool. To store, let cool, then package air-tight and hold at room temperature up to 4 days. Makes about 40.-Jan Macauley, Spring Valley, Calif.
