Linkfest: Cookies

You remember my love of making cookies, right? During the holidays, I was receiving several cookie recipes a day in my email box, which only added to the stash I had bookmarked from Tastespotting and the rest of the interent.

  • Meringue Snowflakes (Better Homes & Gardens) – so pretty, and I love meringues! I think I’d have to print out a picture so I knew how to make them look so good.
  • Chocolate Chip Meringues (My Recipes) – a simple variation on meringues.
  • Samoas Girl Scout Cookie Clone (Once Upon a Plate) – how I love these. It’s not Girl Scout cookie season yet, so make your own!
  • Chocolate-Dipped Oreos (SugarEd Lagniappe) – I wouldn’t have thought it would be so easy.
  • Smores Bar (Hey, that tastes good!) – wish you could go camping but it’s well below zero out? Make this treat at home instead.
  • Still on my quest to make chocolate crackle cookies like the Norwegian bakery, here are the multitude (OK, only 3, but that’s a lot of batches of cookies to find the right one) of recipes I’ve found so far:
  • Mocha-Chocolate Shortbread (My Recipes) – shortbread is great, though I may have to make these without the instant coffee bit, or buy some decaf instant (though that stuff is nasty).
  • Mocha Toffee Bars (Sass and Veracity) – mocha might be what I miss most about having given up caffeine.
  • Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies (Today Was Fun) – maybe these will help reduce my mocha craving.
  • Orange-Spice Madelines (My Recipes) – not that I need more baking pans in my house, but if I were to get one, a madeline pan is right up there on the list (perhaps I should find some store-made ones to try first?).
  • Lemon Drop Cookies (oh fransson) – can I pretend these might be healthier than lemon bars?
  • Pecan Squares (My Recipes) – I love pecans. ‘Nuff said.
  • Pecan Sandies (Smitten Kitchen) – OK, this looks like a whole lot of work, but if they can really all be made up and then frozen, and then baked in small batches when needed, it might be worth the afternoon in the kitchen.
  • Chai-Spiced Cookies (The Kitchn) – I also love chai.
  • Cinnamon Bun Cookies (No Fear Entertaining) – breakfast in the form of a cookie.
  • Rum-Eggnog Thumbprint Cookies (Eating, Etc) – probably more work than I’m willing to go to, but sounds yummy.
  • Frosted Vanilla Cookies (oh fransson) – these seem simple yet tasty.
  • Peppermint Bonbon Cookies (My Recipes) – while the holiday  mood still strikes you, go for peppermint one last time.
