Probably the most delightful, most sophisticated little cookie you will ever munch on or present. A great gift too, with some Mumm’s on the side for New Year’s up ahead. Try the Cognac Cookie version too.

Chestnut Truffle Brownies
A fudge brownie gets slicked up for the ball. A chocolate truffle taste and texture, topped with a thick and delectable ganache frosting. No one eats these; they tend to inhale them.

Tchaikovsky would have approved. A sweet bread that goes down like Danish, fresh or toasted. Good hosting fare. Finished off with a slick of orange cream cheese frosting and chopped pistachios. Cue those dancing feet.

Snow Queen’s Coconut Macaroons
Bad ones give the whole macaroon family a bad name. These are to swoon for.

Best Scottish Shortbread
Walkers, move over. Scottish grandmothers, beware. The trick is a perfect recipe, better butter, pulverized sugar, and a slow oven. Buttery, crumbly, long lasting, better-as-they-age, old-fashioned shortbread. See our Brown Sugar Shortbread and Nutty Shortbread Sandwich variations.

Linzortorte Biscotti
A little Holiday spice in your favorite form: biscotti. A ribbon of raspberry jam graces this spice and nut cookie.

Rich chocolate shortbread, slathered with a Bailey’s Irish Cream fondant. Cookies that say, ‘bottom’s up’.
