Holiday Stamp Cookies

I am a self-proclaimed cookie lover and while I don’t discriminate, I have a weakness for sugar cookies the most.  This year old-school holiday stamp cookies (aka, sugar cookies) are #1 on my holiday baking list.  July 9th is National Sugar Cookie Day but I’m a bit perplexed by that. One would think any day […]

I’m serious, this is the cookie to kick off cookie […]

hazelnut-cherry Linzer cookies

Hazelnut-Cherry Linzer Cookies

Linzer cookies, a traditional Austrian Christmas cookie, are one of my all-time favorite cookies. With their delicate nutty shortbread-style crust and jam filling, what’s not to love? Slightly more involved to make than the average drop or slice-and-bake cookie, I think that these are well worth the effort. They are lovely to look at and […]
