Christmas Cookie Recap


christmas cookies 2014

I don’t know about you, but we’re still finishing up Christmas cookies. It’s amazing how long those things last. I ended up making four different varieties this year. Two old favorites: chocolate chip cookies and Linzer cookies with pomegranate and raspberry filling. Plus two types I simply wanted to try and thought the holidays made a wonderful excuse: chocolate madeleines and miniature gingerbread financiers. Both of the “new” recipes came from The Secrets of Baking by Sherry Yard. It’s a book I can’t recommend enough.

While I don’t really believe in making New Year’s resolutions, I’ve already promised myself I’m going to simplify my holiday baking next year. The last thing anyone needs around the holidays is more cookies. Next year, I’m determined to only make the chocolate chip and the Linzer cookies. We’ll see if I actually follow through…

What cookies or other special baking did you do this year?
