Jeffrey Saad has his hands in the cookie jar, and he’s bringing out his love for exotic spices. It’s no wonder his unique twist on the coffee shop favorite is bursting with flavor.

Jeffrey’s Orange Clove Spiced Biscotti have all the crunch and texture you’d expect, plus candied almonds for a bit of chewiness to balance them out. The additional touch of citrus and clove mean his biscotti not only pair perfectly with coffee, cappuccino and dessert wine, but shine all on their own.

There’s a saying around my house: Everything tastes better with a little bacon. It’s always been true for Brussels sprouts. Now, thanks to Unique Eats host Lee Anne Wong, it’s true for cookies, too.

Using bacon fat in addition to butter makes her Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies rich and moist, and the bits of bacon studded throughout make a salty complement to the chocolate. Think of chocolate covered pretzels taken to the next level — sweet, salty and crunchy all at once. She made them once for the Foo Fighters and the band ate dozens in minutes. You may never bother with plain old chocolate chip cookies again: Why would you, when you can bake bacony ones that rock?

David Rocco loves a good cup of espresso, but if you’re looking for a slightly sweeter twist on that Italian classic, try his Chocolate Espresso cookies. Each bite is a taste of David’s Dolce Vita: In the cookies, he combines a double shot of chocolate (semisweet and cocoa powder) with the makings of a real espresso — coffee and milk, offered in balance.

The result? These cookies boast a delicious zip beneath their crackly sugared tops, providing a sophisticated pause amid the season’s bustle and a tasty treat for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.
