Pistachio Shortbread–Christmas Cookie #1

en quête de saveur

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Pistachio shortbread:

 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for the work surface

 1/4 cup granulated sugar

 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

 1/2 cup shelled raw or roasted pistachios

 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, cold, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

 1 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, sanding sugar, or raw sugar, for garnish

1. Pulse the flour, granulated sugar, salt, pistachios, and vanilla in the bowl of a food processor for 1 to 2 minutes, until the pistachios are finely ground. Scatter the butter pieces in the food processor and pulse several times to cut the butter into the flour. Stop pulsing when the ingredients just come together and cling to one another. (Watch carefully, as food processors work very fast and can easily overmix the dough. At first the mixture will have a coarse, crumbly texture, but then if…

Festive Sand Dollar Cookies

You know how I adore ANYTHING BEACH!!!!!

Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches

‘Tis the season to be baking. Fa la la la la!

I definitely have my own favorites for our family Christmas cookie line up, and some kind of yummy cut-out sugar cookie is always on that list!

This year I decided to try something a little different. Inspired by my collection of sand dollars, I thought it would be fun to try out an idea for coastal themed Christmas cookies. Of course, these sweet beach treasures are great for any time of year and would be a big hit at any luau or beach picnic!

I used a sugar cookie recipe that I found at Art of Dessert (recipe below).

After rolling out the dough to 1/4 inch, I used a small mouth Mason jar lid band to cut out my cookies. It was just the right size (almost 3″ across) for the sand dollar I was trying to match…

Coconut Macaroons

Health Without Sacrifice

Meet my new obsession for this holiday season: coconut macaroons. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made these in the last few weeks. These babies have helped me avoid overdoing it on the overwhelming amount of holiday cookies my house seems to be accumulating. The best part? They’re made with all good-for-you ingredients. Therefore, I feel no regret constantly popping them in my mouth 🙂

Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons: 

(Makes 30)

Ingredients:

2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

2 egg whites

2 tbsp vanilla protein powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

optional: dark chocolate chips

Directions: 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all the ingredients together and pinch into balls. Bake for 18 minutes. If desired, melt some chocolate chips and drizzle over the macaroons.

Every year I make a ton of holiday cookies to pass out to friends and family.  I have been collecting recipes since 2000.  Here are some of the every year standards:

Hidden Surprise Snowball Cookies

Turtle Browniesturtle

Chocolate Crinkles

chocolate-crinkle

Brown Sugar Ginger Crisps

brown-sugar-ginger

Pistachio Orange Lace Cookies

Stained Glass Trees

stained-glass

Gingerbread

Favorites tend to appear over and over because people request them, but I also try to test a couple of news ones every season as well.

Jamie has been imploring me to bake cookies for a special “snack” for his class, so I decided to try out three variations on a theme in one pop!

This basic cookie dough recipe is from an old 2003 issue of Gourmet (he wasn’t even born yet!)  that I’ve used for cut-out cookie holiday cookies, which we then frost.  The cookie dough is versatile, and you can add different flavors to it, creating…
