Today’s cookies are brought by my wonderful friend Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake and if you don’t know her you’re in for a loss. I’ve known Liz for two years now and she always amazes me with her baking skills. On her blog you’ll find a recipe for almost any known dessert, and if you’re a chocolate lover you’re in for a treat. Just check some of these tempting brownies or the chocolate cookies
I’m incredibly honored to be guest posting for my sweet friend, Roxana, today. I’m actually going to meet Roxana this weekend at Mixed…an amazing food blogger conference held at a resort in mountains of Virginia. I’m so excited to attend my first blogger event…I hope to pick up some tips to improve my blog, but even more thrilling is the chance to meet some foodie friends in person
Roxana is such an amazing baker…I am totally in awe of all her gorgeous breads and baked goods. She asked me to share a holiday recipe…and I love a good excuse to pour through my collection of Christmas recipes. I’ve been wanting to make these poinsettia cookies for eons, and this gave me the chance to try them. I printed off a recipe in 2001 and had sketched a couple diagrams on the folding technique. Totally mystified by my scribbles, I did a quick Google search and found better directions from Gale Gand. I added sugar to her cookie dough recipe (who would bake a Christmas cookie without sugar???? Not me!) as well as flavorings and used silver dragées as accents instead of a green M and M. This was not my favorite sugar cookie dough, so if you have a recipe you like, I’d recommend using your own and just trying this technique. I hope you’ll make some poinsettia cookies for the holidays!
Thanks, Roxana, for your kind invitation!! See you soon!!!! xo
