Cookbook: Mini Treats & Hand-Held Sweets: 100 Delicious Desserts to Pick Up and Eat by Abigail Johnson Dodge
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the United States, and I’m sure many of you have already decided on your “main star” dessert. Heck, you may have that pie baking in your oven or sitting on your countertop right now. But maybe you’re looking for another sweet or two for the dessert table. If you need something dependably delicious, you can stop looking because Abby Dodge has published a new cookbook: Mini Treats and Hand-Held Sweets. We’ve been a fan of Abby’s recipes since discovering Desserts 4 Today: Flavorful Desserts with Just Four Ingredients. Every dessert we’ve tried from this cookbook has been a must-do-again. And now we we have more!
So let’s get back to that dessert table, since you’re running out of time. Here’s your solution: Orange Cardamon Slice ‘n Bake Cookies. The recipe is quick and easy (just remember to leave time for the dough to chill). Plus, it does double-duty. As in Desserts 4 Today, Abby often gives you ways to switch things up. In this case, her “twist” to the recipe creates Double Chocolate Peppermint Slice ‘n Bakes — perfect for the holiday season.
Go ahead. Make both versions. I promise these cookies will perfectly complement your chosen dessert. But I can’t promise that they won’t outshine the main star.
Find the recipe for Orange Cardamom Slice ‘n Bakes (plus two bonus recipes, for Elderberry-Blueberry Turnovers and Mini Red Velvet Whoopie Pies with Marshmallow Filling) here: Fine Cooking.
