Right about this time of year, I start to get the cookie twinkle in my eye. That’s the twinkle representing all the cookies that will be born in the month ahead as the Christmas frenzy starts.

There are many family favourites when it comes to Christmas cookies; these would be the ones that we can’t do without. And of course there are always new ones to try.

For today’s Magazine Mondays post, I decided to try a recipe that I’ve had bookmarked for a very long time. I’ve made palmiers before, and have many variations of the recipe, but I just wanted to put this particular recipe (from a 1998 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings) to rest.

They were pretty and delicious and disappeared in the blink of an eye. Will I make them for Christmas? Possibly.

What I do know is that there is much sweetness ahead. Have a wonderful week everyone!


Note: During the month of November, I will be taking a hiatus from Magazine Mondays. But never fear! Those of you wishing to attack the magazine pile can still do so. Wandering Coyote of Retorte has so graciously offered to host MM for the month of December. So you can send your links to her at wandering_coyote{@}yahoo{.}ca.

Joining me this week for Magazine Mondays are the following people who managed to lessen their magazine pile just a bit:

Wandering Coyote made a mouth-watering Sausage and Penne Gratin.

Debbie started the week off with not one but two MM entries … Coconut Crusted Salmon with Tamarind Barbecue Sauce and New Mexico’s Chili Glazed Chicken with Hominy Polenta.
