[cooking] Holiday Cookies

I made 6 different cookies to package up and give as gifts:

Holiday baking done. Clockwise from bottom: chocolate crinkles, almond cloud cookies (with homemade almond paste), peanut brittle, soft molasses cookies, peanut butter cookies and brown butter chocolate chip and pecan cookies. All recipes from #kingarthur

Clockwise from bottom: chocolate crinkles, almond cloud cookies, peanut brittle, soft molasses cookies, peanut butter cookies, brown butter chocolate chip and pecan cookies. All of the recipes are from King Arthur Flour.

For the almond cookies, I made homemade almond paste. It came out a little chunky, not perfectly smooth, and wet. When I was mixing the dough, I did end up adding 3/4 cup of flour, just to bring it together a little bit more. But the almond flavor is wonderful!

The peanut brittle was the best surprise. It only took 10  or 15 minutes to bring together and the microwave does all the work. 

In little cardboard loaf pans and ziplock bags, ready to give away:

Packaged up, ready to go. #holidaycookies
