Of course I shouldn’t call them Dr. Oz Approved but how else to make you sit up and take notice? These are delicious and healthy and soul-and-body satisfying. They whip up in seconds and have all you need in the way of complex carbs. If I could have snuck in a little kale I would have. They have interesting old grains, the benefits of raw almonds, the good-for-your-brain pumpkin seeds and coconut oil (both great, says Oz), and hemp (for I-forget-what) and the vitamins and fiber of dried fruit and the perk of fresh cranberries. One of these zaps your appetite in a wholesome way. This is the sort of cookie to pack in the car so that when hunger strikes, you reach for these good carbs.

These are pretty similar to Famous Amos. They take margarine which makes them authentic.



From The New Best of BetterBaking.Com cookbook, Whitecap Books 2009 .  Almond scented shortbread, filled with luscious dulce de leche caramel filling. One of a kind gift but save some for yourself! Make your own dulce de leche from the free recipe on this site or find ready-made (if you must). This is about the best cookie in the world and the ideal holiday gift. Make it once-it will become, as it is mine, your trademark. I learned about alphahore cookies in tango class. 13 years of tango later (which one needs to work off the alphahores calories), I am still making these amazing cookies. If you make only one cookie (after oatmeal and Tollhouse) this would be it.

II love spice, apples and apple cider so this had to get wrapped up in a biscotti. Sometimes I glaze these with an confectioners’ sugar quick fondant glaze or instead, use the special cider/sugar dipping method to finish these off.


This is just like an apple pie but with the crunch of biscotti. A little apple pie filling makes them exceptional.

Apples and spice – what a winning combination for a refreshing new hamantashen variety. You can use canned apple pie filling (just make the apple pieces smaller by dicing finer –messy but important) or your own apple filling with the recipe here.  Either approach will give you orchard-fresh hamantashen in that cinnamon spice and apple flavour everyone loves.

Apple sauce adds a nice flavor and texture here.

I only make these squares using Californian apricots (Bella Viva Orchards is my source of supply. But you can also use dried mango, which I get from Costco. Nothing beats the sweet but tangy filling of apricot (or mango) in these luscious, easy squares. These have a bit of oatmeal in them but you can also try my recipe for Apricot Squares that are shortbread based.

This traditional Czech pastry is one of the very first yeast recipes I ever tried. It is good with any filling but I prefer apricot jam or cherry pie filling. Many recipes for kolache dough exist but it is inevitably variations on a sweet, supple dough, often with sour cream in it. Kolache fillings can also be savory (such as shredded cabbage). This is a round of dough with an indentation. The indentation cradles the fruit filling. Pretty to look at and great with a pot of spice tea. Enjoy.

Some folks swoon for chocolate; I swoon for apricots. This biscotti features Californian dried apricots, or cut up apricot leather (I purchase mine in Middle Easter food shops) and is laced with peach schnapps, apricot liqueur or apricot nectar and orange juice. It is sweet, tart, and pretty enough as a gift. Baking with liqueurs is always interesting and this method of dipping the baked biscotti into juice or wine and then sugar and re-baking, is one I favour. It makes something that is already special, spectacular.
