Chewy, sweet molasses cookies with a bite of ginger. A little glass of milk. Napkin (optional). Perfection.
We love the complex flavors of this bark recipe from Bon Appetit: the earthiness of the cacao nibs and coffee + the sweetness of the cherries and chocolate + the saltiness of the crumbled saltines and sea salt flakes. The flavors may be complex, but making these cookies is easy.
Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s Splendid Table is one of our favorite radio programs. And Yotam Ottolenghi is one of our favorite chefs. So when we found this recipe by Mr. Ottolenghi, on Ms. Kasper’s website, we had to make it. These are flipping easy – very few ingredients and very few steps. If you need a cookie that wows, and you need it now, this is the cookie for you.
Whether you’re making puffy White Chocolate Peppermint Meringues, a traditional Fruit Cake with Rum, or homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream, there’s something pleasing about turning the kitchen into a flour-covered sugar factory and cranking out silly amounts of holiday cookies. Here’s a roundup of some of our holiday cookie favorites from years past.
This rugelach from Smitten Kitchen has it all… nuts and chocolate, raspberry jam, sour cream dough and sugar on top. Plus it’s easy AND healthy. Well, not that last part, but it’s so good it’s worth overlooking that last bit. We first had this rugelach on the magical day that Thanksgiving and Hanukkah collided. These nearly bite-size delights are perfectly sized for handing out as a holiday cookie, so make some for your family and share the rest with your favorite friends.
Some of the best gifts are the gifts you make with love at home. If you’re looking for a holiday gift idea, here’s an easy, delicious gift pack you can make in the comfort and safety of your own kitchen.
We were down at the cabin, listening to the Splendid Table, when this recipe for Buckeyes came on, from the ladies at Liddabit Sweets in Brooklyn. It sounded delicious (chocolate plus peanut butter? Yes please!) so we thought we’d give it a try. These little delights make great gifts.
