This is the perfect cookie to have with a cup of tea. It is slightly crispy with a chewy inside; the white chocolate adds just enough sweetness and the jam is delicious in the center. You can feel good about eating these cookies, since they have good for you rolled oats in them.
These brownies are a twist on a classic chocolate chip cookie. They are easier to make and require less time because you press the cookie batter into a cake pan instead of forming the dough into individual cookies. I spent a lot of time over the holidays in the kitchen cooking, so when I saw how simple this recipe was I knew that I had to try it out. I found it on one of my favourite food sites, Not Without Salt; this blog is filled with amazing stories, recipes and food photographs.
This is the first time that I have made Rugelach cookies. The dough is cream cheese based and the filling is a combination of raspberry jam, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and chopped walnuts. They were just the right size to serve after a heavy Hanukkah meal. They also freeze well and would be a great cookie to exchange at a holiday cookie party.
I have also included a few of my favourite photos from Christmas and Hanukkah below.
This recipe comes from Anna Olson’s most recent cookbook Fresh with Anna Olson. Every recipe I have tried from this book has turned out great, so when I decided to make brownies the other day I figured I would give her recipe a try. The brownies turned out perfectly, rich and chewy with just the right amount of chocolate. I would highly recommend this recipe and the entire cookbook to anyone who likes seasonal cooking with fresh ingredients. Finally, these brownies are great as a weekday dessert but would be wonderful served with ice cream and strawberry sauce for entertaining.
I made these cookies for the first time about 5 years ago because my mom was always saying how much she liked them, but found them to fussy to make. I will admit that they do take some time to form into the right shape, but the actual batter is fool proof. Your effort will be well worth it; a few years ago my mom was able to eat 16 of these cookies in a 2-day period!
This recipe for snowball cookies is from the Betty Crocker Cookbook and my mom has been making them at Christmas time for as long as I can remember. They have a strong vanilla flavour and are melt in your mouth good.
This is my favorite holiday cookie. I love the spicy smell that they put throughout the house when you bake them. My mom started making these cookies when she was a little girl and not a year goes by that we don’t make a big batch of them together for Christmas. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Swedish Pepparkakor cookies.
