    Dark Chocolate Cookies with Salted Caramel

    These cookies are a hybrid of rolled sugar cookies and classic thumbprints. Dark chocolate cookie dough is rolled and cut with specially designed thumbprint cookie stamps.

    Stained Glass Sugar Cookies

    It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a big batch of sugar cookies (, or !). These were a lot of fun to make, and so pretty we wanted to hang them on our Christmas tree. It’s amazing how easy the stained glass effect is to achieve – anyone can do it, and I’ll show you […] LEGGI TUTTO
