Winter Cookies


Pretty Italian Cookies

Not sure if you’ve figured it out yet, but I’m Italian. So anise cookies are kind of this thing my family likes to make. I’m not a fan of licorice, so the cookies aren’t my first go-to cookie. However, I have no problem making them, especially since I get to decorate them.


Gather the goods, just no need for the remote


You will need:
2 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
1 1/4 teaspoon butter
2 tablespoons anise oil

1 cup confectioner’s sugar
2 teaspoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350. Mix the butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and anise oil and continue mixing until combined. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder. Add dry mixture to wet in small batches until combined.

With a spoon, drop small one inch cookies onto baking sheet. Bake for about 12-15 minutes. Let cool on cooling rack.

While those are cooling, mix the icing ingredients until smooth. I added some red to make the icing colorful, then dipped them into the icing and put back onto the rack. Decorate with sprinkles or whatever you’d like. Enjoy!


Buy Me Something II

Oh, wow. I just found this place in New York City that has cookies I’m craving. No, I’ve never had them, but I really, really want to try them. Their “compost cookie” is filled with pretzels, potato chips, coffee, oats, butterscotch, chocolate chips. I mean, it can’t be bad, right? The place is called momofuku milkbar and the cookies are $12 a tin. Tempting to buy…. tempting.

And then they have these blueberry and cream cookies that I’m drooling over.

Snack-Sized Cookie Mixes?

My mind was blown at the supermarket the other day. I was wandering the baking aisle looking for inspiration when I stumbled upon the best thing ever. As a single gal, I rarely have a need for two dozen cookies. So when I saw this on the shelf, I was ecstatic. No more baking for an army when I’m took lazy to not use boxed!

And would be perfect for making cookie bars!
