Here in New York it is a yucky February day complete with snow, sleet and freezing rain, so a hint of the tropics sound good right now! Sadly I won’t be in the tropics anytime soon, but a tropical cookie like these Mojito Sugar Cookies can help me dream about warm and sunny climates.

When it comes to holiday baking I like to make new recipes every year. But at the same time I don’t always want recipes which require a laundry list of ingredients and take hours in the kitchen to prepare. Especially when I am cooking with my kids – simple is better.

Browned Butter Sugar Cookies

I love sugar cookies – they are simple and so delicious. So when I saw a recipe for Browned Butter Sugar Cookies on Pinterest I was intrigued, and knew I had to make some of my own.

 

I changed up the recipe that I found on Bake or Break by dipping them in candy corn colored sprinkles to make them more seasonal, and they look and taste great!

Lately I’ve been making mostly mini-sized desserts – like these bite sized Lemon Tassies.

Lemon Tassies - bite sized tarts filled with tangy lemon curd - a perfect mini dessert

Small desserts are perfect for me, because I am trying to eat better and lose weight, but I can’t give up desserts completely! So small desserts let me have a little bit, but not too much.

Bite sized desserts are also perfect for a party, and are a great way to let guests sample a variety of treats. These tarts have a pastry crust filled with a sweet homemade lemon curd.

Rocky Road Cookies

Rocky Road is a popular ice cream flavor, so it only makes sense it would make a delicious cookie too.  This recipe is just a standard chocolate chocolate chip cookie recipe with the addition of almonds and marshmallows.

Maple Cream Cookies

The theme this week for the Creative Cookie Exchange is sandwich cookies – and I made these tasty Maple Cream Cookies.

Maple Cream Cookies - a delicious cookie with creamy maple filling sandwiched between two spice cookies.

The cookie part of this recipe is a mild spice cookie flavored with real maple syrup.  Maple is one of my favorite flavors, and although it is a traditional fall flavor I like it all year round.  Baking these cookies made the whole house smell delicious too.

A friend of mine gave me this recipe last year, and I couldn’t wait to try it. Unfortunately I couldn’t find cranberries at the grocery store until the beginning of November, so I had to wait a while! The recipe uses orange juice concentrate to add a hint of citrus to the cookies, which really brings out the flavor of the cranberries.

Pecan Tassies

Pecan Tassies - Traditional Christmas Cookies with buttery crust, brown sugar and pecans

Pecan Tassies are one of my favorite cookies, for Christmas or anytime of the year.  They are like eating mini pecan pies, with a rich buttery crust, brown sugar and crunchy pecans. They are easy to make too, and much less intimidating to make than a pie.  Instead of rolling out the dough in a big pie pan you simple press little balls of dough into a mini-muffin tin, and fill them with pecans and topping.

Halloween Chocolate Covered Oreos

I love using candy molds to make decorative cookies, because it is so easy and the result looks cool.  These cookies are always a huge hit at parties, and look like they took much more effort than they really did. I made these Halloween Chocolate Covered Oreos in multiple colors of candy, but even if you make them all one color to save time they still look and taste amazing.

Chocolate Coconut Meringue Cookie Recipe

Working on the assumption that almost everything tastes better with chocolate, I decided to add chocolate chips to my Meringue Cookies this year. I like to make Meringues, because they are so simple and involve so few ingredients, and they melt in your mouth when you eat them.  They are also about as low calorie as you can get for Christmas cookies. The only drawback is my recipe calls for cream of tartar, which I only use a few times a year. So I usually have to ransack the pantry to find it, because it has invariably ended up all the way in the back underneath something.

Peppermint Kiss Sugar Cookies

I love the Peppermint Kisses candies.  They look so cute and you can really taste the candy cane flavor.  So this year instead of making cookies with chocolate Kisses I wanted to use the Peppermint Kisses in a cookie.  I kept it very simple and just put them on top of sugar cookies as they came out of the oven. The resulting cookie was delicious and super easy to make. If you aren’t into baking you could use refrigerated dough and end up with a very easy dessert to take for a party or cookie exchange.
