While these Scribble Cookies from My Sweet Mexico aren't necessarily a traditional Mexican sweet, author Fany Gerson's childhood fondness for them guaranteed them a spot in her cookbook.

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

While baking these little White Pecan Cookies from Fany Gerson's My Sweet Mexico I thought they were going to be almost identical in texture to the Amaretti I had made a few weeks ago. Sure, there was the almond versus pecan factor, but a nut is a nut, right? As it turned out, these cookies couldn't be more different from their Italian cousins. More

The grasshopper is a vintage cocktail made with crème de menthe, crème de cacao, and fresh cream–it definitely falls into the dessert-in-a-glass category of cocktails. They inspired these Grasshopper Bars from Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito's Baked Explorations. More

No one bats an eyelash when it comes to adding a dash of salt to an otherwise sweet recipe, but when you go and add a touch of spicy pepper to cookies, things start to get a little crazy. These Salt-N-Pepper Sandwich Cookies from Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito's Baked Explorations add white pepper to their version of homemade Oreos, and I've got to say, they're pretty genius. More
