12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies Favorites: Orange Cranberry Rugelach, World Peace and Lime Meltaways

This is Week 10 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies posts and I haven’t been able to bake this week, so I decided to just post three of my favorite cookies from last year.

It’s Hanukkah right now and it would be the perfect time to bake these fabulous Orange Cranberry Rugelach cookies that I made last year. I used Dorie’s rugelach recipe, Dorie Greenspan’s Rugelach Secrets, but flavored it with orange and cranberries. I loved these flaky, sweet and tart little treats.

Another of my favorite cookies from last year is the World Peace cookie. It is a chocolate shortbread cookie but a little bit chewy because of the brown sugar in them. If you’re a chocolate lover you need to make these.

Martha Stewart’s Lime Meltaways really do melt in your mouth. They have a crunchy/sandy texture and sweet/tart taste that I love. A great addition to a Christmas Cookie tray.

I want to thank everyone for all the prayers, love and sweet thoughts you’ve been sending the past week. Mom’s service was yesterday and everything smoothly. It was beautiful; just the way she planned it. I am so fortunate to have such a great family and wonderful friends. Thank you all.
