    Mchewek are small balls of mainly almond filling which are moist and slightly chewy on the inside while crisp on the outside. Simple to make but incredibly delicious...

    A very different cookie for your holiday sweets tray. I have not tried this myself.

    Recipe #13914

    A traditional German cookie for Christmas..or any time of the year. Commonly served with wine. Should make 30 to 40 biscuits. If not using a blended flour with xanthan or guar gums added- then add one teaspoon of gum with your flour to the recipe. These biscuits remind me of a ginger snap cookie from Arnotts (or at least what I remember them tasting like!)

    Recipe #228798

    Soft Italian cake type cookie. this recipe has been in the family before I was born, so I will label it as 1946...

    Recipe #75976

    My oldest friend gave me this simple and delectable cookie recipe in 1962, and I make it every year for the Christmas season. The cookies are not as heavy as many butter cookies. Light and delicious.

    Recipe #64547

    A few years ago I needed an authentic Indian recipe for a class I was teaching. A girlfriend from India was gracious enough to share this recipe with me. The children loved them. Yield and prep time are a guess as I didn't make a notation of them.

    This recipe came to me from my Grandma Erickson. How far back into the Erickson or Gustafson family it originated, I can't say. The recipe looks a lot like plain sugar cookies but, the honey gives them a subtle but unique flavor. Sorry about the sugar confusion. The brown comes from the baking but I find that having them not so brown is better than burnt. That said, if you can watch them closely, a nice golden brown gives an added dimension to them, but be careful, they will burn in a heart beat.

    This recipe was provided to me by the Red Square Bakery. These cookies are very healthy for you. You can buy flax at most natural foods stores. Grind it fresh in a coffee grinder or a food processor. Don't grind it too fine, because you want some roughage and you don't want to overheat the oils in the flax seed.

    Recipe #71358

    This is one of my favorite cookies. It's from my Swedish Grandma. They are very simple, but I think that's what I like about them. Very tender and rich.

    These sandwich cookies are popular in South Africa, but you can enjoy them in your own home wherever you live. :) Posted in response to a recipe request in chat.

    Recipe #31124

    Call these cookies whatever you want but there are very small differences... This recipe was given to me by my Slovakian MIL... I must admit that I bought some of the fillings premade one year but I usually make my own. ... but they are delicious anyway... Check the Jewish or International section of your grocery store for premade.. The brand name is SOLO.... This will take several hours to prepare and cook... You can cut the dough recipe in half or quarter if you wish to make less.

    Recipe #81373

    At one time, I made these often as a nice treat with a quiet cup of tea. Unlike the other koulourakia recipes posted here, this one is not a butter cookie, rather a nice combination of citrus and walnuts. Though these are traditionally served with a light dusting of powdered sugar, my guess is dipping the ends in chocolate would also work well. More recently tried to reduce the fat by replacing some of the butter, but have not had great results. The addition of applesauce and other fruit purees makes the cookie lose its characteristic crispiness. At best you can swap out 1 or 2 tablespoons of the butter, no more. Preparation time does not include 90 minutes required to chill the dough. This recipe is being posted for the ‘Zaar World Tour.

    Recipe #137081

    This cookie recipe has become a dear favorite of my entire extended family here in Ft. Worth, TX, esp. Uncle George!

    Recipe #168867

    I have looked high and low for this wonderful sweet from my childhood to no avail. I finally came up with a version that is very much the same in taste if not in looks. This is a treat for young and old alike. This recipe comes from one similar in an old cookbook from Temple Beth Israel with which I experimented.

    Recipe #113705

    A very typical cookie in Germany for Christmas.

    Recipe #147934

    A very "more-ish" biscuit (or cookie) which goes very well as a dipping biscuit (sweet). My friends keep coming back for more. From an old recipe book from 17th Century

    Recipe #27148

    This is a variation of Shortbread that has a uniquely Canadian flavour! It is much like the Scottish shortbread with it's rich creamery butter flavour combined with Canada's maple syrup. It requires two separate steps: making the maple butter and making the shortbread. It's an easy recipe to make and I hope you enjoy it.

    Recipe #38201

    Way back in high school in my Home Economics class, we made these African cookies. I just found the recipe again digging through an old box. I remember them being delicious, and I hope you'll find them the same.

    Recipe #39403

    soft melt in the mouth biscuits, I suppose originally from Vienna. So simple and economical, can be made in half an hour

    Suspiro, or "sigh," is the generic name for these kinds of cookies, which are as light as a sigh. Cudillero is a town in north-western Spain.
