Anyway, I usually experiment with new recipes for the cookie exchanges. I don’t know why, since there is always a chance that the cookies won’t turn out, but perhaps I am a daredevil. For this cookie party I decided to make the Lemon Cream Sandwich Cookies from the January 2009 issue of Bon Appetit. They were a little labor intensive, since you have to make the cookies, make the filling, then assemble the sandwiches, but I thought they were very tasty and festive. I think if I make them again I will double the filling recipe, or wouldn’t they be good with some sort of cream cheese filling, for those of us who love cream cheese filling?
Tonight I am going to make the dough for World Peace Cookies for another holiday cookie exchange. Again, it’s a new-to-me recipe. We’re gearing up for yet another messy snowstorm, but nothing is going to keep me away from a holiday cookie exchange.
