Sweeten Your Holiday Season with These 4 Delicious Cookie Recipes
December 18, 2018
This holiday season, ROSS’ military apartments will be filled with sweet smells and precious memories.
We believe that family is the most important thing. Every year around this time, we’re reminded of who we love most, who we’re missing, and how we can show those close to us that we appreciate them. That’s why ROSS’ military apartments are full of the features and amenities a family needs. This December, gather your loved ones in the kitchen for some quality time and some home cooking.
Granny’s Chocolate Cookies
These may very well be the dark horse of holiday cookies. Competing alongside classics like chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, and iced sugar cookies may make this recipe look unique, but that’s a good thing. They’re chewy and crispy all at once. Darkly flavored with Dutch-processed cocoa powder yet light on the palate. Best of all, children will love rolling squishy balls of chocolate dough in the sparkling sugar. This recipe comes from Martha Stewart Holiday.
Macarons are probably a common holiday cookie in France, but here in America good macarons are few and far between. Luckily, now you can make them too. James Beard award winner and serial cookbook author Dorie Greenspan offers her precise recipe for these chewy French favorites. Flavor any way you like, from delicate to bold, and make colorful sugary fillings, too! You can find this recipe in this chef’s most recent release: Dorie’s Cookies.
Or, as Julia Child calls it in her culinary bible, The Way to Cook, spiced cookie dough. You can make more than miniature houses and little men with this clever recipe. Julia recommends using a classic cutter or a cookie stamp, but the possibilities are almost endless. Create unique textures and shapes using (easily washable) household objects. Plastic toys, stone decorations, and textured kitchen implements are great. Whatever way you cut it, these cookies are absolutely delicious.
Chunky Lola Cookies
These cookies come from famed chef Joanne Chang of Boston’s FLOUR Bakery. Her cookbook is full of innovative flavors and complicated recipes, but this isn’t one of them. These drop cookies are flavored with shredded coconut, pecan halves, and bittersweet chocolate, making them almost like Mounds candy bars (but, dare we say, even better?). Kids can help by mixing these wonderfully chunky bits into a tasty dough.
ROSS’ military apartments are built to be used. Utilize your spacious kitchen to the fullest this season with these wonderful recipes! Want to explore other layouts? Come tour today.
