My Mom found this Lemon Wedding Cookie recipe in our local newspaper and suggested we try it for Easter. At first I thought she was crazy because we had already found our favorite lemon cookie. Not only are these Lemon Ricotta Cookies my favorite lemon cookies…they are my favorite cookie period. Why add another one to the mix? But since I always do what my Mom says we baked these little guys for Easter.
I usually only make cookies around Christmas time. With the exception of chocolate chip cookies that is. I can always eat a chocolate chip cookie. When I saw this recipe on Picky Palate I thought I’d give it a try though. I don’t know what made me want to make them. First, I’m not that big on red velvet and second I don’t like dark chocolate. But they looked pretty and they were super easy so I decided to go for it. Well, let’s just say that I made these cookies twice in 1 week. And then again a week later. I really loved them!
Well, here we are just a few more days til the big holiday. Are you ready? Is your shopping done? Have you accomplished all of the holiday activities you planned? I am bummed because we have not make it to the Christkindlmarket yet this year. It is pretty much the only holiday outing that I plan. The day we planned to go was cold and rainy, so we skipped it. I am hoping that we still get to go but we are running out of days. Sad.
It’s not surprising that the majority of the memories I carry with me about my Grandma and Grandpa involve food. Homemade pizza, mini shells, cream puffs and the best cauliflower I’ve ever tasted, just to name a few. I think they would be proud to know the impression their cooking left on me. A lot of the recipes on our blog are inspired by my Grandma and Grandpa. This Biscotti, albeit loosely, is no exception.
Are you finished with your Christmas cookie baking? I hope not! And if you are, there is always room for more cookies this time of year. Here are our favorite Christmas cookies. Add these to your list and make beautiful cookie trays that have a little bit of everything.
