I need to make about 8 dozen of one type of cookie. Any good recipes out there that are easy for this, and yummy? I know I can multiply any of my favorite ones, but seeing what else is out there...

      This looks like a great master recipe, and I want to try it. Do you think I can substitute real butter for the Crisco? I'll probably try it anyway, but would like your opinion. Thanks!

        Just signed on and saw your questions ... easy one first ..the recipe makes about 75 cookies, maybe more depending on size.

        As far as substituting real butter for crisco .. I have no idea. I am not a baker so when I do bake something, since it's way out of my comfort range, I tend to stick to the recipe.
        Let me/us know how it turns out if you do try it.

        It is a great master recipe!

        The Mrs. Fields/Nieman Marcus chocolate chip cookie recipe makes a huge number of cookies. You need a powerful mixer, though. I did burned out a cheap one.

        I've made Monster Cookies for bake sales and they make a lot, too. They're really good, almost pb candy-like.

            My friend kas makes the best molasses cookies ever -- I could eat an even dozen of these in one sitting, no problem.
            2 cups sugar

            1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter

            1/2 cup molasses

            2 eggs

            4 cups all-purpose flour

            1 t. baking soda

            1/2 to 1 t. salt

            2 1/2 t. cinnamon

            1 t. ginger

            1 t. cloves

            Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour cookies sheets. In large bowl, beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add molasses and eggs; beat well. In medium bowl, combine all remaining ingredients. Add to butter mixture; mix well. For 2-inch cookies, drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, or 4-inch cookies, drop dough by walnut-sized balls onto buttered and floured cookie sheets.

            Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool on wire racks. Makes approx 9 dozen two inch cookies.

              Could one use a silpat instead of buttering and flouring the cookie sheets?
