Recipe: Italian Deli Cookies

These are really similar to the cookies I used to get all the time in Italian bakeries / delis growing up in New York. I didn’t have a pastry bag so I simply rolled the dough into very small, even sized balls I would absolutely suggest using a pastry bag or spritz machine to make your cookies. The assembly of these is very simple but it really enhances the experience of the cookie itself so it’s worth taking the extra steps. The cookie is flaky and butter with a good snap but it’s not too brittle.

Recipe: M&M Cookies

These are classic and easy and since I’m not actually a big fan of peanut butter I like these better than the peanut butter m&m cookies I previously made. This is a single bowl, no wait cookie that comes out absolutely perfect every time and is so simple you probably have everything in your house right now except the M&M candies.

Recipe: Gingerbread Cookies

These were so good that I absolutely could not believe it. Please run, don’t walk to make these gingerbread cookies. The best part about them was that they were so delicious it was difficult to stop eating them and the second best part was that they not only held their shape when they cooked but they didn’t need to be chilled before rolling. Wow!

Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s no nonsense and they cookies come out light and fluffy with just a little bit of chew to them. Best enjoyed while they’re still a bit warm (you can pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds the next day to get that just out of the oven feel!)

Recipe: Tri-Color Venetian Cookies

I make these every year for Christmas/New Years. They come out amazing and they’re eye-catching and delicious. They are not simple to make and will take you at least 3 hours usually between the cooking and cooling and pressing and mixing and so on. They also cost are some of the most expensive cookies to make by batch due to the almond paste, jam, large amount of butter, almond extract, and that chocolate for the top. The recipe makes 40-50 cookies but I always double it to make it easier to work with the batter.
