Joelen takes a classic yellow cupcake and makes it festive by swirling in gingersnap crumbs - then garnishes it with a cute little floret of cream cheese frosting and gingersnap cookie - so deliciously cute!

Spectacular Swirl Cookies

Spectacular Swirl Cookies

"These are sweet sugar cookies which are surprisingly easy since they are a slice and bake cookie. Yes, aside from making the dough and rolling it together, this is just as easy as going to Shoprite for some Pilsbury's sugar cookie dough, but it's so much better!"

Plus they really do look spectacular!

Lindsay makes her first macarons, these luscious and light chocolate macarons filled with homemade dulce de leche.

"The cookies are so light and crisp, but so rich in flavor. It's like the perfect contradiction, and the filling, well there is no other way to describe that besides yum!"

I love these adorable little cookies from Sweet Pea's Kitchen!

"Butter, whipping cream and flour come together to create melt-in-your-mouth wafer cookies. It is absolutely impossible to have just one of these bite-sized cookies… I am sure you will agree, these tender, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth cookies sandwiched together with a creamy butter filling and just too cute. But not too cute to devour!"

Chewy Spicy Ginger Cookies

Chewy Spicy Ginger Cookies

from lolfoodie

This is THE cookie for ginger lovers: "These cookies, I have to say, turned out magnificently. I love a spicy ginger cookie, and with three types of ginger (freshly-grated, crystallized, and ground), there is no lack of zing. The texture is soft and chewy, and well, they’re just perfect."

Classic Pecan Sandies

Classic Pecan Sandies

from Sweet Life

 

"Pecan sandies are a shortbread cookie studded with pecans. The dough is rolled in sugar before being placed on the cookie sheet, then topped off with a whole pecan. Pecans are the star and they should be the best you can find…"

Luckily SweetLife lives in Texas where the pecans are superb, and the pecan tree is the state tree!

"They are crumbly, crunchy and the salt makes the pecans pop. Popping pecans, I mean can you really ask for more?  Enjoy!!"
