These spice laden gems are not overly sweet which is a nice change from the chocolate coated chock full of chips cookies my kids want me to make. Not too sweet with plenty of flavor and the smaller size means you can have three and not just one. And yes you really need to grind your own nutmeg and cardamom, it does make a big difference. You can adjust the clove and cardamom to taste. I go easy on the clove and heavy cardamom.
I'm not sure what these were originally called, but the recipe came from a Pillsbury Bakeoff cookbook. These are my favorite cookies and I get requests for them all the time. They are a chocolate cookie topped with sugar and pecans and when you bite into them you get a delicious caramel surprise!
I quickly wrote the ingredients and directions down as these were being prepared on a local television program. I believe it was Martha Stewart's Everyday Living. Posted here as they look delicious and I don't want to lose the recipe! Hope you enjoy.
Tender and delicious, these are the sugar cookies I've been making for twenty-something years! The dough must be chilled thoroughly, so I usually just mix it up the night before I want to do my baking. Recipe #156400 is great on these!
Comes from Giada De Laurentiis. Had some ricotta cheese that I defrosted and never used so I looked for a dessert recipe and found this one. There were about 6 other recipes posted here but I wasn't sure about them because the ingredients list were different for each and I had never made this type of cookie before. They are very cakey cookies and the lemon glaze is very good. The cookies themselves also have a nice subtle lemon flavor. My family liked them alot hope you do too.
Orange and cranberry are paired with white chocolate chips to make an irresistible cookie! This recipe is based on the 'zaar recipe entitled "Orange Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies", using cranberries instead of raisins and having less fat and sugar than the original recipe.
I love this recipe because it is so easy to roll out, and the taste is great. This is our favorite Christmas cookie recipe to make, but I also make them for Easter and Halloween. Sometimes I ice them or just sprinkle with colored sugar while they bake. I always double this recipe for us.
Mexican chocolate consists of grainy chocolate disks flavored with sugar, cinnamon, almonds and vanilla, used to prepare Mexican hot chocolate beverage and in mole sauces. It is usually available in Mexican sections of supermarkets.
Substitution for Mexican Chocolate if you cannot find it:
One ounce of semisweet chocolate, 1/2-teaspoon ground cinnamon and one drip of almond extract can substitute for 1-ounce of Mexican chocolate.
