afternoon (if you're not a Lebowskiite ignore that.) I'm talking hardcore Christmas cookies. The ones shaped like things, covered with neon bright boiled frosting and studded with stuff that doesn't look like it should be edible, but is.
Here's What You Need
of unsalted butter . (I use grass fed pastured butter in my cooking, and especially when making European recipes such as these, I think it helps to get as close to the ingredients that would be used there, here.)
plus 2 Tbs powdered (confectioners) sugar
unsweetened cocoa powder. (once again use the best cocoa you can get your mitts on, trust me it 's worth it.)
2 1/4 cups
zest of 1 orange Here's What To Do

it's FREE. I made thesecookies three times before figuring out that as much as I love brown sugar, I had to drastically reduce the amount for the same reason as I needed to use the clear vanilla extract – it negatively impacts the color of thecookies
It's just not my thing. Even so, I'm not positive I'll be making them again, since chocolate-covered styrofoam still isn't really my thing any more than wet, quivering meringue is, but for those of you out there who do like meringue cookies, then you will enjoy these
It's cozy inside and now all I want is some hot tea andsome cuddling on the couch with Jamie. It'salsotheseason for parties with friends andget-togethers at work, andthere's nothing like a tray of beautiful cupcakes to bring a smile to someone's face, like theseChocolate Peppermint Swirl Cupcakes

There are a ton of great made from scratch pudding and pie crust recipes on the internet and in cookbooks so if only eating foods made totally from scratch is your thing, I’d suggest checking out some of those recipes
They are so pretty, can you really eat them. I placed each chocolate chip on top of each swirl of Cookie Dough frosting by handsothe cupcakes would look just like chocolate chip cookies ♥ This cupcake is loaded
