    Here are three that I like:

    Four Flavour Icebox Cookies

    Ginger Date Squares

    Moderate Madeleines. Don't be put off by the fact that this is a 'Diabetic' recipe. Put a nice glaze on them, and these can hold their heads high (metaphorically speaking) on any cookie tray around.

    Of course, I recently posted a bunch of Christmas recipes which are not up yet. icon_confused.gif Let me know if you are interested in any of the following, and I will add them here when they come up if you are:

    Aunt Helens' Almond-Raspberry Rice Squares
    - Made with rice flour, which gives a lovely texture.

    Chocolate-Peanut Crisp Bars
    - An easy no-bake bar that is very rich and chocolatey, with rice crispies in it.

    Hazelnut Butter Shortbread.
    - Very rich, a hazelnut lovers dream, but you need to be able to get the hazelnut butter.

    Eggnog Shorties
    Chocolate Almond Crisps
    - I always make these two together because one calls for two egg yolks and one for two egg whites. The first is a rich shortbread type cookie with rum and nutmeg; the second is a flourless cookie with an amazing crunchy-chewy texture.

    These are annual favourites: Cappuccino Flats, Chocolate Crinkles, and Pineapple Brown Sugar Cookies.



    The following is a new favourite: Pecan Sables.

    Since someone else in my department always gives away a mixed bag of cookies, I've decided to go more the simple candy route this year.

    My plan so far has been Coconut macaroons, nut brittle (almond, peanut, pecan, whatever), and fudge. The fudge and brittle can be made in the microwave, which greatly appeals to me and prevents me standing the kitchen making dozens of batches of cookies!

    Last year I gave out little dishes of my grandmother's marzipan strawberries. They're so easy and delicious, made with nuts, coconut, strawberry jello powder, sugar and I think condensed milk. Here's a recipe that sums it up.
    http://www.recipecottage.com/candy/jello-fruits.html
    It doesn't say in this recipe, but we use green icing to make the strawberry leaves.

    I've found a few interesting recipes in the past few weeks that have peaked my curiostiy, and I may be adding them to the list.

    Mayan Cookie Brittle
    Chocolate, Cinnamon and Pumpkin Seed Cookie Brittle
    (Mayan Cookie Brittle)
    By Karen Barnaby

    A new found fondness for the combination of cinnamon and chocolate plus a lifetime affair with my mother's chocolate chip cookie brittle led to this recipe. I like to use pieces of cassia bark in these cookies and grind them coarsely in a mortar and pestle for little explosions of sweet cinnamon flavour.

    It looks extremely groovy if you paint lines between the pumpkin seeds with a little gold powder mixed with bourbon before breaking it into pieces. My pet name for this is Mayan cookie brittle.

    1/4 lb Unsalted butter 125 g
    1/2 tsp Coarsely ground cinnamon 2 mL
    1 oz Unsweetened chocolate, chopped into small pieces 30 g
    1/2 cup Sugar 125 mL
    1/4 tsp Vanilla extract 1 mL
    1 Egg 1
    1/3 cup Flour 75 mL
    1/2 cup Hulled pumpkin seeds 125 mL

    Preheat oven to 350F (180C).

    In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the cinnamon. Remove from heat and stir until the chocolate is melted. Stir in the sugar, vanilla, and egg until smooth. Stir in the flour and beat well. Immediately pour and scrape the batter into a 10- by 15- by 1-inch jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper. Spread the batter into a thin, even layer across the pan. Scatter the pumpkin seeds evenly over the top.

    Bake for 10 minutes, or until the cookie is just set. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack for 20 minutes. Cut or break into 2 dozen rough-shaped pieces, as you would a nut brittle.

    Makes about 20 pieces

    Happy baking! I'm sure everyone will enjoy your efforts.
