C is for Cookie!

What's your favorite type of cookie? Similarly, what's your favorite cookie recipe?

Since I don't have any sort of oven in my dorm room, I've gotten into the habit of going home on the weekends and baking batches of cookies to take back with me. Mostly, I play around with my favorite chocolate chip recipe, but tonight I'm feeling more adventurous and trying this snickerdoodle recipe. Hopefully they turn out well!

My favorite chocolate chip recipe is as follows:

1/2 cup butter (salted, 'cause I like my cookies slightly salty and only have that kind in the house)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chunks, preferably Ghiradelli
1/2 cup nuts, chopped (I've found either pecans or cashews are REALLY good)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Mix dry ingredients with butter/sugar/egg/vanilla mixture. Put in oven at 375 degrees and bake for 7-10 minutes.
