This recipe calls for a batter-like dough and is baked on a pizzelle iron. Powdered sugar adds an elegant touch. In the Italian version, vanilla is replaced by anise. Chocolate may also be used.
Chinese Restaurant Almond Cookies
It's been said that the lard is what produces the traditional taste. However, if desired, butter or margarine may be substituted for very satisfactory results.
Sunshine Coast-Style Nanaimo Bars
Nanaimo bars with a blackberry twist; they take a while to be ready to eat, but are well worth the wait.
Apricot Almond Rugalach
These cookies freeze well either baked or unbaked. Extremely dainty and delicious cookie. You can also sprinkle the top with coarse sugar.
Macaron (French Macaroon)
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!
Greek Butter Cookies
When I was little I used to live next to a Greek family, who would make these cookies year round, and give tins of them to neighbors around Christmas.

This is a family recipe that's been made at Christmas time by at least 4 generations. This year will be the first for number 5!!! 'Bubba' brought it with her when she came from Lithuania. I pass it on in the true spirit of this season!
French Cookies (Belgi Galettes)
French cookies are a Christmas tradition in SE Kansas. You need a galette or pizzelle iron to make this old family recipe.
Scottish Shortbread IV
This is the most basic cookie recipe there is. Real butter and brown sugar give it an irresistible flavor.

Swedish Angel Crisps
This recipe came from my great grandmother's family who came from Sweden somewhere near the end of the last century. NOTE: You can also add 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa to this recipe. It makes the cookies taste like brownie cookies.
