Cranberry Almond Biscotti

Rating: Unrated
I modified a recipe to make this a darker biscotti. For a richer almond flavor, use almond extract instead of the vanilla.

This cookie is very chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside, BUT the entire outside is coated in sliced almonds for a fantastic look and is absolutely delicious. It is well worth the effort.

Macaron (French Macaroon)

Rating: Unrated
This is the quintessential macaron (NOT macaroon) recipe. I am a baker's apprentice, and after much trial and error, we (the baker and I) finally perfected the technique. We decided to share with you all. Pipe your choice of filling on a cookie and sandwich another cookie on top. These are like cloud cookie sandwiches and are delicious if done correctly. If you want to do it the super-easy way, just fill with your favorite flavor of frosting. Enjoy!

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Rating: Unrated
This is a traditional Christmas cookie recipe that we have had in our family for years. All I did was change the shape to make them look like fingers for our annual Halloween party. The cookies make a great conversation piece. My guests loved them!

Inspiration and Ideas

French Macaroons

Rating: Unrated
Fantabulous colored, bite-sized macaroons. Divide batter into thirds and color one-third pink and flavor with raspberry flavoring; color one-third yellow and flavor with lemon flavoring; color one-third pale blue and flavor with vanilla. Fill and make sandwich cookies with filling of choice, like peach jam or strawberry preserves.
