Valentine's Day may be about romance, but it has always been sweetly innocent. Making these heart cookies will take you back to grade school, except the construction paper and glitter have been replaced with cookie dough and sugar crystals.
Skip the green food coloring. We've raised the bar for Saint Patty's Day desserts. These blondies are enriched with Irish coffee-inspired flavors -- ground coffee in the batter, whiskey in the sugar glaze. And you don't have to pull out the heavy stand mixer: A bowl and a wooden spoon will do.
It's time for Christmas cookies! Choose from our very favorite cookie recipes to share with family and friends, including gingerbread, speculaas, biscotti, pfeffernussen, chocolate chip, and snickerdoodles.
Filled with dried fruit and toasted nuts, biscotti are wonderful Christmas cookies. These crisp and crunchy twice-baked treats are perfect for dipping into a mug of hot cocoa, mulled wine, or cold milk. Thanks to their crisp texture, biscotti last for several weeks and hold up very well for mailing, making them perfect for holiday gift-giving.
