For Christmas cookies, use your favourite cookie cutter shape - try stars, snowmen, angels or Christmas trees.
Melt in Your Mouth Shortbread Cookies
This fabulously tender shortbread is made in the food processor to ease preparation; be careful though as over processing dough will cause the dough to become greasy and the butter will melt out as they bake.
Mincemeat Pinwheel Cookies
Pinwheel cookies are a Christmas classic. This version uses pre-rolled puff pastry as the dough, and seasonal mincemeat as the filling. Much easier than the traditional version with two colours of home-made cookie dough stacked and rolled.
Jam Thumbprint Cookies
Thumbprint cookies are a holiday tradition, and look great on a dessert tray. Substitute another type of nut, if you prefer.
Chocolate Cherry Brownie Cookies
Melted chocolate makes this drop cookie extra delicious. Look for dried cherries in the bulk area of the grocery store.
Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Dacquoise
Dacquoise is a dessert made from nut-flavoured meringue rounds layered with fruit and whipped cream or buttercream. It makes a stunning dessert to serve to company.
Holiday Truffle Fudge
This cross between fudge and a chocolate truffle is pretty on a dessert tray, and makes a great gift.
Macadamia and Chocolate Chunk Cookies
These golden chunky cookies are positively irresistible with their craggy peaks of chocolate and creamy white nuts. Sensational and rich!
