Nothing more than crumbled matzo, dried fruit—raisins or cranberries—and chocolate chips bound together with melted chocolate and butter, Dorie Greenspan’s morsels are crunchy and chewy, a bit salty, a lot chocolatey and the kind of simple sweet that could become one of the things you find yourself craving often.
Dorie Greenspan’s thumbprints, really macaroons, have just four ingredients: almonds, coconut, sugar and egg whites. She originally made them for Passover, but they make great Christmas cookies, too—or make them as a treat for gluten-free eaters. Not that you need a reason to make them; bake up a batch just because they’re delicious.
With whole milk, heavy cream, and not one—but two aged rums, this is eggnog at its absolute best.
When you start with something really good, it doesn’t take much to make it better. And that’s the story of of Dorie Greenspan’s Christmas Spice Cookie. Dorie started with her Do-Almost-Anything Vanilla Cookie Dough, and then added the spices that evoke Christmas: cinnamon, ginger, cloves and allspice. The result is a cookie that’s perfect with coffee or tea, mulled cider, mulled wine or a late-night cognac.
Endlessly adaptable and exceedingly easy to work with, Dorie Greenspan calls these simple vanilla cookies the Batman and Robin of baking for a crowd, capable of making you look like the host who does it all effortlessly.
