Hey there, my name's Annette or Nettie and I'm in Idaho! I'm a new fan of yours...just discovered you from my friend's blog (she had the I read Nie Nie button.) You've inspired me so much since I found your blogs (I stayed up until 4am the other night reading everyone of your Nie Nie Dalogue posts that you ever wrote!) My mom used to make these cookies growing up and they were my FAVORITE! She called them Crinkle Cookies!

Amanda said...

These are my favorite cookies ever!!!! My recipe is huge though this seems so much more manageable I think that I am going to have to make some now!! Thank you for posting this you are fabulous!


Sandee said...

Oh YUM! These look so GOOD... I have to say though, I like the cute polka-dot napkin and plate almost as well as the cookies!

Emily Heizer said...

LOL @ Nettie, I did the same thing a few nights ago.

Nie I went back and read all of your posts from the beginning of time and am now in love with your blog and will be hanging out with you every day. (virtually) lol :)

Holly C. said...

Katie H said...

Oh, YUM. Thank you for the recipe! And I hope you feel better in no time flat. Lots of people are praying for & thinking about you. You rock, NieNie.

These are hands down my FAV cookies. They freeze beautifully, and you can eat them practically out of the freezer.

Girly Stuff said...

I think we need the home-made oreo recipe you keep raving about!

I think your kids are learning how to nurture. Never a bad thing.

Our prayers are with you too...everytime I open my blogroll. And we all know how often that is for us bloggers!

Christina said...

Hi Stephanie! My aunt makes these cookies at Christmastime, and they are definitely a favorite. You are in my prayers and you and your family are an inspiration. Thank you for posting and keeping us updated, especially during your treaments, when I'm sure it is not easy.
xo, Christina (from San Jose, CA)

Katie @ goodLife {eats} said...

I love these cookies, but I've actually never made them myself! Going to have to remedy that soon. Thanks for posting these fun recipes.

Shannon said...

I add mint chocolate chips to these cookies - heavenly!

Bert Bell said...

Crinkle Cookies should come with a warning label...."HIGHLY ADDICTIVE"!!! I came across a recipe for them one late night when the chocolate craving came thought they were the bomb!!!

Ariel said...

you will love them, stephanie :)

Dandy said...

I might just make these tonight!

JSR Photography said...

Yum! I've always loved these cookies!

Stephanie - I've wanted to leave a comment for a long time just to let you know that I think you are incredibly beautiful! I know it's probably still hard to see the change your appearance has undergone, but, seriously, it has not lessened your beauty. Thanks for all of the wonderful blog posts we get to read everyday!

You are in our prayers! Oh, and I agree that you need to share the Oreo recipe. It sounds like heaven!

Liz said...

I have a similar recipe which wE call Zebra Cookies, and we like to put Hershey kisses on them just after they come out of the oven. The mint ones or the peppermint candy cane ones are the best!

Nora said...

Oh my goodness, these look tasty. Thank you for sharing your cookie recipes & your days with us!

Carly said...

These look delicious, can't wait to try them!

jdm said...

Thanks for this one. I have always wanted to make these. They are straight out of my childhood.

Lynda Halliger-Otvos said...

Nie, your children learn that love stays and grows no matter what happens to a person's physical body. Nurturing fosters cooperation and competence.

You are doing the right things. May the peace of healing be near you these hunchie days.

Shannon said...

My 4 year old and I are going to make these today! Yummy. Thanks for sharing.

Lisa Lou said...


You have forever changed my life, especially my life as a mother. My superhero children Spiderman and Mr. Incredible made these cookies with me today, and ate until we needed yet another bath today because we were covered in chocolate and powdered sugar.

Thank you for inspiring me.

Delicious! my favourite cookies. They are very popular during every New Year. I love to make it.

Sue Sparks said...

Theses are the best chocolate crinkle cookies I've ever seen! I love baking and cookies, but have never made these...Now I am motivated! THANKS!

Cindy L. said...

Okay those cookies look devine! Especially since I cannot have them. :( But the real reason for my comments is to tell you how BEAUTIFUL you looked in the Wasatch Woman magazine! Really beautiful!

Melissa at said...

Aw, these are a family favorite. My mom makes them every Christmas. I never even think to make them other times during the year and I should because they are so delicious.

The Butcher Block said...

Looks good!

Debra W said...

Dear NieNie (and Ariel),

I made these little chocolate bundles of goodness, yesterday, and they are SOOOOOOOO yummy! I followed your recipe but before I rolled them in the powdered sugar, I rolled them in mini chocolate chips and then the powdered sugar. That made them extra chocolatey good!

Sometimes, chocolate can solve a problem better than anything else:) Thanks for an awesome recipe!


Fawn Becker said...

Made these on Sat for my kid's Valentine's Day party & they were a hit! Thanks for sharing :)

vivian said...

I am a new follower of your blog, you are a truly beautiful person inside and out. You inspire me to keep on going and hang in there when things get tough. I wish I new you personally because I think you would be a great person to have as a friend. I live in Spanish Fork, UT. My 13year old daughter is going to be going through a major spinal surgery, she is scared, she will be home bound for quite some time. I will shower your blog so she can see how tough we woman really are. You are in my prayers.

Elizabeth said...

Hello Nie. I'm a follower of your blog and I just wanted to pop over here and tell you how beautiful you looked in that magazine article. You're simply lovely inside and out and if I can be like you in any small way, that would be a very good thing.

And those cookies....delicious aren't they? We call them dupa cookies in my family. It's a polish thing and a family term-of-endearment.

Sab said...

These cookies look great! Can anyone tell me if they turn out chewy or are they crunchy? Thank you for all of your beautiful posts!

I love you even though I don't know you. You do so much good even when you're so low. And don't worry or apologize about the "complaining." Your readers like how real you are with us and and I appreciate knowing you're not perfect- I'd be saying much more in the "wo is me" department. Anyway, you rock!

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on I decided to find a good vendor of e-smokes. I'm done with paying so much for normal smokes.A friend recommended [url=]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with disposable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a collection of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented technology offers convenience and exhibit performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

Kelly Jean said...

Mmm. Those look deliciously scrumptious and a half.

I just had to say - I'm so happy you're a LOST fan!!!!! I'm a fellow Lostie, and people who don't know about Lost are seriously missing out. I love escaping into that world. Don't you love this season??! The latest Jack-isode was amazing. Maybe the best of the season? :)

Nie, i hope you can answer my vexing cookie question. I tried these little beauties on Saturday and failed miserably. They seemed so fail-safe. Anyway, I think I may have put too much flower in (I put exactly 2 1/3 cups), but my mixture was dry and powdery. I hoped after the 6 hours of chilling, something magical would have happened and the dough would be ready to make beautiful cookies. Alas, I ended up calling smart cookie and ordering 2 doz. b/c I was in a pinch. Suggestions??

These look fabulous!

Kytsmom said...

Coming back from Stake Conference I realized that I had said I would make a dessert for a funeral tomorrow. I'm not one that pulls things together. I get a recipe and then go to the store. Costly I know, but my mind only works that way. When I saw these I thought, sweet, I'm doin' these and won't have to sin and go to the store (wink).

The Murphy's said...

Oh I love these cookies! When I was a freshman in college (at Kansas State Univ.) the dorm made these cookies. We would sneak out a napkin full in our backpacks. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! :-)

Wow, I made these last night - with my 7 week old baby in the carrier and my 2 & 1/2 year old "helping". It was my first attempt at baking with 2 little ones. It was an easy, fun recipe and they were delicious (I ate more than a few). I froze part of the batter. My husband said they were incredible. Thanks Nie Nie! You are helping me get through my crazy maternity leave!!
