As we bid a bittersweet farewell to our second annual Cookie Month, we thought that we'd ask all of you to chime in with the cookie recipes that you've baked over the holiday season for our weekly Cook and Tell challenge. Judging by the responses, you've all been baking as much as we have, and testing out many of the recipes that we've shared over the past month.
So before those New Year's resolutions kick in and cookies are shelved for the season, let's take a look at the dozens upon dozens of cookies that have been filling your kitchens with their intoxicating buttery, sugary goodness.
Taking inspiration from our pal Dorie Greenspan, sarar whipped up a batch of Walnut Linzer Sables filled with tart cranberry jam. To add to the holiday cheer, sarar punched out tiny Christmas tree shaped holes for the jam to poke through.
Showing a measure of holiday restraint ag3208 chose to limit holiday cookie baking to Chewy Gingers and Ultrathin Chocolate Chunk Cookies, a recipe that we shared for Cook the Book at the beginning of the month.
KarmaFreeCooking's Cherry Carob Toffee Cookies were inspired by a recipe from Martha Stewart. Even without the chocolate and eggs KarmaFreeCooking says that the new version is just as special as the original.
cooking4carnivores story about baking Jam Thumbprints from the Betty Crocker Cookie Cookbook was just as sweet as the recipe that she shared. These thumbprints are dipped in chopped nuts just before baking for an added crunch.
