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.

Buckeyes

Like just about any recipe I make with peanut butter and chocolate, I dedicate this one to my sister, Holly, who is a PB-choc fanatic. Also, she’s an Ohio State Buckeye! These buckeyes are so simple to make, I’m sure she could whip them up in her college apartment. Nudge, nudge, Holly.

Peanut butter fudge with chocolate chips

This fudge got a little crumbly on me, quite possibly because I used natural peanut butter. But you’re not the queen of England, you can tolerate a crumb or two.

Everyone's all about the salted caramel, but bring this salted, boozy butterscotch fudge to the cookie exchange this year and people will rave. It's a nice flavor combination surprise that makes a lot of sense. I suppose the nuts are optional here, but the bourbon is definitely not.

I took my fudge a step up and added a little crushed red pepper to the top. It's totally optional, but I love a nice, spicy chocolate.

I took my fudge a step up and added a little crushed red pepper to the top. It’s totally optional, but I love a nice, spicy chocolate. This is also a little bit of a nod to one of my favorite hot cocoa recipes from our 2011 Loving Cup guide.

Orange creamcicle drop cookies

Who doesn’t love a good drop cookie recipe? I remember my dad bringing home similar orange creamcicle cookies from the store when I was young, so these have a soft spot for me. Turns out, they’re even better when they’re homemade.

I made these after Caitlin, Bill and I went to the Evanston Farmer's Market during Caitlin's visit to Chicago. Caitlin mentioned wanting to make a pie, and I'd been eying this recipe from Bon Appetit. The juices get a little sloppy in the oven, but I sort of love that homemade look.

Raspberry meringues

I decided to make meringues when my neighbor left two dozen eggs on my doorstep. I decided to make them raspberry when my co-worker Lindsey Nair, who writes about food for the paper, gave me a sample of raspberry extract. I’m not sure how widely available raspberry extract is, but the brand I used was McCormick. And if you can’t find raspberry, it would be fun to play with other flavors. I think I’ll try peppermint or lemon the next time I make a batch.
