31 Days of Cookies: Irish Cream and Coffee Cookies

This year, we’re celebrating the season with a month of nonstop cookies. For the 10th day of cookies, Nealey Dozier shares her cookie-fied take on Irish creme and coffee:

These days there are thousands (millions?) of Christmas cookie recipes available to enthusiastic holiday bakers everywhere. In my attempt to mix up the cookie swap this year, I wanted to create a cookie that’s as warm and comforting as it is creative. Taking a nod from seasonal cocktails — is there any better way to face the winter chill than with a hot mug in hand? — I began dreaming of drinks I could craft into cookie form. Hot cocoa splashed with peppermint schnapps? Cider spiked with aged whiskey? A classic hot toddy? I finally decided on a classic after-dinner drink: Irish creme and coffee. Whiskey, chocolate and heavy cream pair perfectly with coffee and translate well into a with-a-jolt dessert.

I started by revving up my best sugar cookie recipe with a double dose of java, using coffee extract (for bitter yet sultry undertones) and finely ground espresso beans (which add contrasting crunch and those lovely specks). Then, I piped a cloud of Irish Creme-buttercream to resemble a mountain of whipped cream. The cherry on top? A single chocolate covered espresso bean.

Fall Fest: Winter Squash Macaroni and Cheese

Come December, it’s easy to turn to pasta as a (nightly) dinner option. But incorporating vegetables into the mix nearly justifies the habit. Ellie’s Macaroni and 4 Cheeses adds squash to the classic dish. Her recipe calls for frozen pureed winter squash, but since there are so many varieties available fresh right now, in-season acorn squash works well, too.
