Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Maple buttercream is sandwiched between these crisp butter cookies for a real taste treat.
Combine 3/4 cup butter, brown sugar, sugar, egg and vanilla in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add all remaining cookie ingredients except walnuts. Beat at low speed until mixed. Stir in walnuts.
Divide dough in half; shape each half into 10-inch log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Cut each log into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife; place slices onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar, 1/4 cup butter and maple flavoring in bowl. Beat at low speed, adding enough half & half for desired frosting consistency, until well mixed. Increase speed to medium; beat until light and fluffy.
Spread heaping teaspoonful of maple buttercream onto bottom of 1 cookie. Top with another cookie, bottom-side down. Repeat with remaining cookies and frosting.

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

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 ...
