Staff Favorites: Cookies, year by year

By The Food Section

So, happy baking! Here they are:

every year when this cookie section comes I always save it for future use ( even tho I haven't tried any of the recipes yet [ & I know it's been going back more than 10 years now ] ).

Although I have to admit I hate them (can't stand coffee), my family and friends LOVE the milk chocolate espresso cookies. I keep meaning to make them once leaving out the espresso so that I can enjoy them, but everyone loves them so much I feel bad doing that! Keep up the great work with the recipes!

I asked about the Anzac Biscuits Wednesday during the chat and Joe was nice enough to post the link. And now they turned up here, which hopefully means they will restore them into the archives.

Hi, Margaret -- So glad you are an Anzac fan! I do love them, too. I'm not sure what you mean about restoring them to the archives, though. They never went anywhere! They've always been available in our Recipe Finder: Is that what you're using? You should if not. It's If you go there, and type "Anzac" into the main search field, they pop right up. Happy baking!
