I decided to give rugelach another go this year, this time with a recipe from Sarabeth Levine's Sarabeth's Bakery. I've had more than my fair share of rugelach from Sarabeth's storefront over the past year and I can honestly say that these were every bit as good as the ones from the bakery. More

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.

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
