What's On Your Cookie Plate?

Me Want Cookies! And candies, pastries, and other treats... It's the holiday season and time for a little indulgence.

What's on your cookie plate? What holiday treats are you making this year?


Yep, that's our theme and the big question here at I Heart Cooking Clubs this week... What's On Your Cookie Plate? What sweet Giada recipe will you be making?


Does your cookie plate hold biscotti, something filled with chocolate or perhaps dusted with powdered sugar or sprinkled with lemon zest?... ;-)

Maybe it's full of candy, wrapped in colorful paper and filled with nuts, or espresso...

Do you fancy cookies cut in holiday shapes? Or mini cakes and tarts?...

Or maybe you want to make something good to drink to enjoy with all the holiday goodies...



What's on Your Cookie Plate? is completely up to you... as long as it is a Giada De Laurentiis recipe of course!

So whether you are taking a plate caroling, going to a party or cookie exchange, leaving out a treat for Santa, or simply having a little snack with a cuppa, make and post What's on Your Cookie Plate? by this Sunday, December 19th.


Don't forget to link your post with Mr. Linky below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous Cookie Plate creation! Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

Kim said...

Just put up my apricot and nut cookies with amaretto icing. Going back in the kitchen for another. Strictly testing purpose, of course;-)

Sweet and Savory said...

Please remove the mashed potatoes. It is late and I am tired but I do know the difference between mashed potatoes and cookies. Cookies should be coming.

Thanks.

I just posted Giada's Lemon Ricotta Cookies with Lemon Glaze which I enjoyed--WAY too much. ;-)

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

The biscotti are up! Who's coming over for coffee?

girlichef said...

Me! Can we have it with a splash of amaretto!?

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

Absolutely! I have the Big Bottle!

Sweet and Savory said...

I see Kim made these with the icing. My hubby does not like icing. He likes plain, plain, plain. Boring but I do it......

I am off to see what they look like with the icing.

Mary said...

OK...had no idea that the Apricot Nut Cookies would be so popular! Who knew? I thought they were spectacular! Yum!
It's always fun to bake along with each of you! Merry Christmas!

Half of the entries so far are Giada's apricot-nut variety (or a variation)...plus Natashya's icing! I'm chalking this up as one of her most successful recipes for sure!
