Re:Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies

I purchased the Fine Cooking "Cookies" a few years ago and have since given the books away as gifts. Usually one picks a couple of recipes in a book that become favourites. There are at least 20 recipes in this book that I make every year. I have passed this Spritz cookie recipe on to friends. Problems with many spritz cookie recipes is that the cookies are too sticky to press out or they spread in the oven to an unrecognizable shape. These cookies press out beautifully and cleanly and maintain their shape in the oven. I do like to add either pure lemon oil, or orange oil just to give a little extra flavour.

Re:Lime-Nut Mexican Wedding Cookies

First time I've made these at Christmas - delightfully easy and delicious with the lovely tang of lime.

Re:Orange-Hazelnut Shortbread Cookies

I HAVE to make these every year for friends and neighbours. Very easy recipe since the butter comes straight out of the fridge and I usually have frozen ground hazelnuts in stock. The dough rolls out beautifully and the taste of the orange and chocolate is delightful. The cookie is lovely and crisp. I make the cookies smaller and thinner than the recipe states and end up with a large number of cookies to pack.

Re:Orange-Soaked Bundt Cake

Absolutely delicious. Made this for my daughter to take to her future Mother in law for an over Christmas dessert. Huge accolades and a request for the recipe.

Re:Almond Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

These Carolyn Weil shortbreads have become my staple Christmas gift. The method produces a shortbread which maintains it's shape and is wonderfully buttery.

Re:Chocolate-Dipped Espresso Shortbread Cookies

for friends who require a less robust espresso flavour, I cut back a little on the espresso but love these shortbreads dipped in callebaut cappuccino chocolate. I have now restricted my Christmas baking to only the shortbreads from this article - all are delicious and fast to make using the base recipe

Re:New York-Style Cheesecake with Cranberry-Cointreau Sauce

Fabulous Creamy deep cheesecake - perfect flat top, no cracking and the cranberry topping made it look very festive. Big hit at the pre Christmas dinner
