With holiday cookie season in full swing, I’m baking up lots o’ holiday flavor combos over here. Cranberry orange shortbread in the style of Alison Roman with those crispy, sugary edges came outta my oven this week and I gotta tell ya, they are banging. I used Alison’s base shortbread recipe cuz, I mean, c’mon, it’s amazing and I amped up the orange flavor with lots of zest and swapped the chocolate for tangy cranberries. We got a real holiday cookie winner over here!
Perfect Holiday Cookie Exchange Cookies
The winter holidays are prime baking time in these parts and I’m taking full advantage. I participate in not one, but two cookie exchanges this time of year and I’m always on the lookout for new and delicious cookie recipes to share with my friends. The trick to a great cookie exchange cookie is its portability! It must transport easily, keep well, the cookies should preferably be stackable, and they need to pack well into containers (preferably cute ones!) – these cookies check all the boxes!
