It does not matter how in advance or how well you try to plan some Holiday playtime for your children, you eventually will have to brake out a cookie cutter. This Holiday season, arm yourself with this fool proof and exceptionally delicious recipe and take the opportunity to spend some time working in the kitchen with your family and loved ones… then, when the cookies are finally ready and the whole house smells like heaven, put on a rented movie and invite everybody to sit and relax on the couch.
Dim the lights, grab a cookie and go to another room, you can now reward yourself with a couple of hours of quiet time.
This recipe has been one of my very first baking adventure when I was a kid; my grandmother Lola taught me a basic dough recipe and invited me to add flavors that I could find in her garden, seasonally. This variation is one of my favorites as it combines herbs, nuts and fruit into a truly unforgettable bite. Enjoy these cookies with your coffee in the morning or after lunch with a half glass of red wine.
