Stop the madness.

December 8, 2012

Well, at least the cookie madness. Where is it written that one must make dozens of variety of Christmas cookies to have a festive holiday? It’s tempting, sure, when they are pictured everywhere starting in October, luring you in with their exotic ingredients or a clever (?) twist on the classic. Well, keep it simple and keep your sanity. Limit your cookie baking to one or two recipes that you’ve made before, are familiar with and that you know your family and friends enjoy. These Hazelnut Espresso cookies from the kitchens at Everyday Food are at the top my list. And, even though I could  make them all year-long, I keep them as a special holiday treat along with a simple shortbread or Ina’s Rugelach.tstdHZLnutz4FIngrds_HzlntEsprssoFcookieDwHzlFcrop_esprssoHZLNT3f

  3. Thank you for the recipe!!! I made them yesterday and I am already looking forward to my cup of coffee tomorrow morning so that I can eat a cookie. Double dose of caffeine before work… that should do it!
