Peppermint Divinity Bars
Make this recipe all the way through without stopping, spreading the warm divinity onto a still-warm cookie base. If the divinity is too cool, it will tear the cookie base as you spread it.
Important: Bake the dough while cold; otherwise, it will spread too much and the cookies will lose their fluffy texture.
Grits + biscotti=Gritscotti. After baking the logs, gently cut them with a serrated knife for even slices. If you break a few slices, bake them anyway and sprinkle the bits over yogurt at breakfast.
Use the bottom of a 1/2-cup measuring cup to flatten the cookies to the perfect size. Be sure to use salted butter.
Sugar Cookie Cutouts
We think 1/8 inch is the perfect thickness for a crisp, buttery cookie, but this dough can be rolled to 1/4 inch thick if you prefer a soft texture.
