The Holidays are for baking and decorating cookies. When it comes to choosing which cookies are best to decorate, I have to say it’s a toss up between Gingerbread and Sugar, and I usually alternate between the two. This year, it was Sugar Cookies turn. The recipe below is one of the best and easiest recipes I’ve come across for cut-out sugar cookies, and best of all it can be made ahead and frozen for up to a month.
I love simple cookies around the holidays, probably because some of my favorite moments over the holidays are those shared over a cup of chai (traditional Indian tea) with my family. So a cookie that pairs well with chai, or coffee is always a winner.
For me (and my friends and family) the Holiday Season and Biscotti are virtually synonyms. They are my favorite cookies to make at this time of year and my favorite from the kitchen gifts to give. So much so, people in my world have started to expect them! And I am happy to oblige!
Biscotti is a classic Italian cookie that often appears more impressive than it is, which is part of the reason I love them so much! They are virtually impossible to mess up, the more rustic the better!
