This show piece for your Christmas table takes some time to make but the recipe isn’t hard. Use your imagination to decorate the tree stump. You can be traditional and make it look like a tree or you can be more abstract as in my example. Either way the chocolate icing against the light and airy cake is delicious.
Christmas candy cookies are simple to make and delicious. You can use most forms of Christmas candy in the batter or for a change use glazed fruits, dried cranberries or maraschino cherries. Enjoy with a hot cup of cocoa or mulled cider.
This is the first in a series of two recipes for coconut macaroons. The cookie is sweet with a tropical flair. It is filled with tasty coconut and the goodness of vanilla. For a special treat drizzle the finished cookie with chocolate or butterscotch.
My English grandmother used to like having tea during the afternoon. I remember at tea time she always had a cookie tin filled with these Ginger Snaps. These cookies are crunchy and spicy. They’re sure to become one of your family favourites.
Mae’s shortbread is a recipe that my mom received from a close friend when I was little. My mom took the recipe and made it into a special treat for holidays. She’d meticulously cut out shapes of birds, bells and trees. These days I just roll the dough in a log and cut into disks for when I need a quick treat for friends and family.
At Christmas my family celebrates with food and family. One cookie which turns up again and again is the recipe for peanut butter bites. The chocolate and peanut butter are a great combination for any celebration or for when you just want a decadent treat. Enjoy!
