Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Christmas Cookies

Christmas Cookies graphicOver the past couple of weeks I have focused on getting some of my holiday baking done. While the cookies are all filed under the label of cookies, I thought you might find it useful to have a bit of a recap with quick links to the holiday cookies. There are other cookie recipes in under that label as well but these are the ones I've made this year for the holidays. I have a couple more cookie recipes I want to make this year as well so watch for them in next couple of weeks.

Any undecorated cookies can be frozen for up to 6 months. Both decorated and undecorated cookies can be shipped if properly packaged to prevent the cookies from moving around and breaking. Pack tightly in tissue paper if shipping. Any gift in a jar cookie can be shipped with proper packing to prevent the jar from breaking. If you are concerned over breakage you could use a recycled plastic peanut butter jar or plastic containers (eg. Ziploc®, Gladware®) or metal cookie tins.
