I have a lot of favorites from the Christmas Cookie Book. I’ve tried almost all of the recipes. I love the gingerbread men, the brandy snaps, Mrs King’s Irresistibles, the coconut snowballs, the carmelitas, the macadamia bars, the shortbread, the meringue ones (the ones with the chocolate middles), . I liked David’s dreambars, but for me the white chocolate colored in the oven. The brownie recipe is a really good one - like she says in the book, I have several brownie recipes myself and this one is really good. I wasn’t as thrilled with the three nut fingers (the dough is a little oily but they taste great) and the cereal wreaths are ok (probably more fun with kids!); the stained glass cookies are also ok. Have fun with your holiday baking!
That sounds like a lovely selection
Can I ask, have you ever had trouble with the topping setting on the Maple Macadamia Bars?
I’ve tried at least 3 times and the topping won’t set and cool, (So I can keep it at room temp) I always have to put it in the fridge!
If you have any suggestions? I follow the recipe to the letter but I’m thinking should I try and boil it longer in the saucepan? Or cook it longer than 10 mins in the oven? (Only issue then is that the edges brown) :(
Please, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
