Gluten-Free Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 149
Almond flour is the secret ingredient in these crisp and tender chocolate chip cookies. For chewiest cookies, enjoy these warm from the oven. If you prefer them a bit crisp, wait until they've cooled before biting into one (or several). Store any remaining cookies at room temperature - a cookie jar keeps them handy!

Momma's Wine Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 144
This simple cake works perfectly during the holidays, on a buffet table or in a picnic basket! And you won't believe the aroma that comes from your oven during baking! The alcohol bakes off and leaves just the flavor. It's very moist and has been a favorite birthday request in our house for over 20 years!

Chef John's Cloud Eggs

Rating: 4.5 stars 27
You've probably seen these things blowing up on social media recently, and by recently, I mean like 2 years ago. These are very easy to do, very fun to make, super cool to look at, and very enjoyable to eat. This could also be a pretty cool menu item for a Mother's Day brunch. Serve on generously buttered toast with a pinch of cayenne and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt.

Speculaas Cookies or Spicy Sinterklass Cakes

Rating: 4 stars 11
This traditional Dutch cookie recipe came with a mold I got 20 years ago. Speculaas is a corruption of the Latin speculum (mirror). The dough is pressed into carved molds that can be used for wall decorations. When turned out onto the cookie sheet, the picture appears as its mirror image, hence the name. In the Sinterklass season they are available in 2/3 cookie size to huge thick men and women up to 1 pound known as lovers. If molds are not available, roll dough to desired thickness and use gingerbread man cutter or other cutter shapes. They are great to make ahead around Christmas because they last a long time.

Springerle II

You will need a springerle rolling pin (imprinted with different designs) for these cookies.
