Cookie baking extravaganza (giveaway winner announced)

As you may remember, I’m currently in NYC – visiting my sister. In between meeting friends and bloggers for various meals (and hopefully working out… that’s yet to happen, but I’m seriously crossing my fingers for a sweat sesh tomorrow!), there has been quite a lot of cooking. I made a comforting traditional Russian cabbage soup for today’s lunch, tried a new breakfast recipe (to be shared in a separate post) and have quite a few more meals and snacks to create. The one thing we haven’t had a shortage of is cookies.

We were invited to a holiday party tonight and my sister and I decided to make little “favors” for all the guests. The mission? Bake as many cookies as humanly possible in 36 hours! Doesn’t that sound like the best mission ever? I sure thought so!

Cookies made:

A lot of work but also so much fun! Everything came out delicious (although we got way more macaroon cookies and not enough ganache… not to worry, we took care of that problem Winking smile )

How was your weekend? If you could only make one cookie this holiday season, what would it be? My vote would go for the lemon sugar cookies. This is the second year in a row I’m using this recipe and I think it’s going to be part of a new holiday tradition Smile [Edited: after further, um, inspection, I decided that I’m addicted to the almond macaroons with chocolate ganache, so I’m switching my choice to them.]

PS – The Real Food Diet cookbook giveaway winner is #3. Congrats, Erin! Please email me your address (elina@healthyandsane.com) and I’ll send you a copy of the book.
