There are some wonderful cookie recipes in Baking Style: Art, Craft, Recipes so perfect for baking during the holiday season. I particularly love the molasses crinkles (page 77), roll out those cookies (page 88), confection brownies (page 178), butter and sugar cookies (page 347, and following page), and when chocolate chip cookies go butterscotch (page 475). Actually, I have two favorite flavors which frequently find their way into my holiday baked goods: chocolate and vanilla. Having spent years and years surrounded by chocolate in all forms and intensities, I never tire of its flavor–witness my mega-book on the subject of baking with chocolate published several years ago, ChocolateChocolate. As well, vanilla, floral and demure, is a versatile component of many of my dough and batter-based recipes.
