Bourbon Bacon Maple Cookies

This is the last of the bunch for my 12 Days of Christmas Cookies and, of course, I saved the best for last. This is a trifecta (in horse track speak) of goodies: Bourbon, Bacon and Maple Syrup. It has been a long year and a busy holiday season, but if you find the time […]

Rosalie’s Mexican Wedding Cookies

These devilishly divine cookies were a favorite around my Grandmother’s Christmas table. I was lucky enough to inherit many of her recipes written by hand, to make for later generations.

Peppermint Meringue Drops

Meringues are certainly outside my comfort zone, but I think these turned out pretty stellar for my first try. Anytime a recipe relies on the consistency of an egg white I get a little nervous.
