Candied Fruit Biscotti

Rating: 4.5 stars 35
A very festive cookie for the holidays.

Princess Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 293
This recipe gets its name from a story that I read to my son about a princess whose only wish is to find a prince that can make a cookie that is as tiny and delicate as she is. This is a delicious little lemon cookie that will not disappoint! They can either be drizzled with a lemon glaze made of confectioners sugar and fresh lemon juice, or rolled in sugar before baking for a more subtle lemon flavor.

Cherry Winks

Rating: 4.5 stars 59
Cookies are rolled in crushed corn flakes and topped with a quarter of a maraschino cherry.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 1271
A nice thing to have around during the holidays, but don't expect them to stay around long. These orange-flavored cranberry cookies are tart and delicious, not to mention beautiful. Not really a favorite of kids.

Oatmeal Dried Fruit Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 36
These are the best oatmeal cookies I've ever had! Very buttery and very hearty. Any dried fruit works well such as cherries, raisins, cranberries, blueberries, or chopped apricots. For a really decadent treat, use chocolate chips and nuts instead of fruit.

Banana Wake-Up Bars

Rating: 4 stars 94
These are soft, simple, but delicious, bars made with yummy ingredients. They're always a big hit when I make them for my friends and bring them to school.
