For many, the holidays are a welcome time of indulgence, when the sweet tooth is fed perhaps a little more than it usually is. We’re embracing the holiday spirit by rounding up some of our favourite cookie recipes for the season (or for any other time). Because we believe you should spend more time baking, sharing and eating cookies and less time hunting for their recipes on the web this holiday season.
Happy baking, and happy holidays.
If you’re looking for a super child-friendly dessert, this is it. After all, there’s nothing better than a cookie hiding candy that you can literally shake out into your hand. Heck, we’re not even kids and we’re blown away.
See how it’s done in the video above.
A great cultural twist on a holiday favourite, these Thai shortbread cookies make a festive statement, both on the plate and on the palate. Let’s face it, there’s something a little more refined about these flower-shaped versions of the standard circular cookie. Don’t be too surprised when your friends ask you for the recipe or try to smuggle some home.
These little cookies are filled with all the best parts of the holiday season: elegance, butter and brandy. And unless there’s some kind of Christmas miracle, there’s no way you’ll just eat one of them.
You haven’t truly lived until you’ve tried Jessica McGovern’s chewy chocolate chip cookies. Warning: they’re insanely addictive.
Simple, tasty and ever-so-classy, what are these cookies lacking? Nothing, that’s what.
