my favorite biscotti recipe from Dorie Greenspan--it's crunchy with cornmeal but doesn't risk your teeth--and added the dried fruit and nuts. Around here, some people prefer what we called unoscotti--the softer cookies after only one round of baking--but they didn't get the final touches, which included dipping the ends in white chocolate and then red and green sprinkles.

Mexican wedding cookies with lime, a nice twist on the traditional version of the cookies. These include lime zest and coconut, which help to cut the richness of the butter and nuts (not that there's anything wrong with that ...) The last step of these cookies -- rolling them in confectioner's sugar twice -- is messy, but it's so worth it. I made a double batch, as these are small and disappear quickly.

favorite brownie recipe from King Arthur Flour for the base, and then topped it, once cool, with the ganache, chopped up peanut butter cups, and then a little more ganache.
