These were the first cookies I ever made for a Christmas cookie exchange. They won best cookie! Easy to make and yummy. Basically, chocolate shortbread with a hint of orange. Tip: to help the cookies keep their round shape and not flatten, put the balls in the fridge to harden up before baking - they will hold their shape better. My yield was 4 dozen 1" balls, or 3 dozen 1.5 - 2" balls.
These cookies were very dry and crumbly, I followed the recipe exact so not sure if they are suppose to be dry or not.
These cookies were a real hit! I made up a cookie gift box and the friends and family I gave them to just loved them. Simply delicious!
These are one of my new favorites. They really are easy. Whenever there's a party, I bring these and they're gone in minutes. Sometimes I add 1/4 tsp orange extract to the chocolate topping for an extra punch.
Love this cookie. Easy to make. The hint of orange in the flavor is so good.
These are absolutely delicious! Easy to make and add a nice variety of shape to my Christmas cookie plate gifts.

Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.

ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
