Double chocolate-almond cookies

I’m pretty much almost always craving chocolate, and I think there is little else in the world that pairs better with chocolate than a little salt and some nuts. And wine. But that’s separate.

Orange-cornmeal spiral cookies

I had been thinking of making polenta cookies, but got the urge to bake before I bought any polenta. The next best thing? Cornmeal. I love the smell (citrus/floral), texture (slightly soft yet gritty) and taste (awesome) of these cookies. They’re the perfect little companions to tea. Or wine.

Oatmeal raisin cream pie cookies

I was feeling nostalgic over the weekend and decided to make something along the lines of the classic Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Creme Pies, like the ones my mom used to pack in my lunch in grade school. These came out better than expected, flavor-wise (definitely better than Little Debbie’s), but they took a little work to achieve the proper cookie sandwich appearance. A couple of tips: If your cookies come out of the oven rounded on top, they won’t fall flat, which means they won’t sit flat when you flip them upside down and slather cream filling on them. Take the opportunity when they’re still warm to gently press them flat. That way, they’ll maintain their nice, rough texture while achieving functionality. Also, don’t spread on the filling until the cookies have cooled completely. Otherwise it will soften, and the weight of the top cookie will squeeze it out of the middle, which is lame.

One Christmas, my mom's dear friend Mrs. Swartz had my brother over to make Christmas cookies. Who knows what else we made that day (It was 20 years ago perhaps), but I'll never forget these easy graham crackers with the salty-sweet coconut-toffee topping. I added a messy drizzle of dark chocolate this time because it never hurts ...

Chewy gingersnaps with crystallized ginger

Those aren’t lumps of coarse sugar dotting the top of these cookies, it’s crystallized ginger pieces!  Those little pieces really helped to elevate these cookies to the next level. These might have a place in my annual Christmas cookie repertoire.

Witches' fingers

My mom would make these using a different recipe, so it was one of the first ideas that clicked in my head for Halloween desserts. You can use diluted red food coloring to paint the nails, or just keep them a natural brown as I did. And totally let the fingers wear some spider rings.
