3. Chocolate-Tahini Linzer Cookies
Melt tahini with chocolate in whatever shade you please for a glossy bittersweet filling that will sandwich together rich cocoa shortbreads. As long as you have one large and one small cookie cutter, they don’t have to be the same shape. Feel free to mix and match diamonds, squares, and teardrops.

8. Kentucky Bourbon Balls
Every Kentucky host has his or her own take on the state’s traditional bourbon ball. Some are enrobed in chocolate; others pop a halved nut on top. We opt for a no-frills presentation that doubles down on boozy flavor by soaking the nuts in bourbon, in addition to the generous helping that goes into the dough itself.

10. Easy New Year’s Eve Cookies
These New Year’s Eve cookies are a cake mix cookie (so easy to make) with lots of fun and sparkly, New Year’s Eve colored sprinkles mixed in. Think gold, silver, black and white. I may have a sprinkle problem, so I already had plenty of fun options in my sprinkle drawer (yup I have one of those).

11. Vasilopita Greek New Year’s Cake
We love celebrating New Year’s Day with our Greek friends – a somewhat cosy affair which doubles as a belated Christmas celebration for the little ones but without the stress of Christmas Day itself. In the spirit of Greek family gatherings, there is always an abundance of deliciously-prepared food on offer, and always a Vasilopita – a Greek New Year’s Cake – to celebrate the first day of the year.

13. Quick & Easy Fruit Pizza
Recently, I simplified my fruit pizza recipe. First, it dawned on me that I could try a pouch of grocery store sugar cookie dough for the crust. Nobody could tell the difference, including me! Win!

14. Old Fashioned Double Chocolate Mocha Pudding
Of all of Grandma’s amazing desserts, somehow her puddings always pulled me in the most. When I was at her house, and she pulled the little banged up saucepan out and whisked cornstarch with cocoa powder, sugar, a pinch of salt (“because you always need a little salty with the sweet like life”), and poured in milk, I was at her elbow with a spoon ready to do my part and scrape the pan clean after she poured the hot pudding into bowls. When I was done, that pan was almost as clean as it had been when Grandma started.

15. Moist, Delicious Rum Cake
This is just the kind of cake I love. I’m not into making super fancy-shmancy-layered-with-lots-of-frosting-and-flowers kind of cakes. Partially because I am not very good at the frosting part and partially because adding all those details prolongs the time before I get to EAT the cake! Here’s how this cake works: out of the oven, out of the pan, poke some holes with a toothpick, drizzle the glaze, cut, eat! Minutes! It takes minutes to get to the deliciousness that is this rum cake!

19. Pretzel Linzer Cookies with Salted Caramel
If you have never baked with pretzels before, it’s time to remedy that immediately, and this recipe is the perfect way to get started. While I almost never eat pretzels on their own (soft pretzels withstanding), they add such depth of flavor to baked goods.

20. Salted Caramel Bittersweet Chocolate Tart
Back when I worked at Sur La Table, I was constantly bookmarking recipes from the classes I worked in. One of my (many) favorite desserts was a version of this tart. It was lacking what I think to be the best ingredient: homemade salted caramel sauce. If you’re like me and you love the combo of dark chocolate and caramel- you’ve got to make one of these babies ASAP!

21. Double Ginger Sticky Toffee Pudding
The gooey toffee sauce is both absorbed by the cake and served on the side. For a glossy, polished presentation, brush the still-warm cake with a clean pastry brush after it comes out of the pan, which will remove some of the excess syrup.

22. Peanut Butter Blossoms
