First up, Our friend Kate Payne has a Gluten-Free Sugar Cookies & Cookie Sandwiches.
Melissa Clark at The New York Times has a GREAT (do it!) version of “easier linzer cookies” that I think we all need to try this holiday season! I am! I have TONS of jams from the summer…. Nom.

Weekly Bite has a Cranberry & Walnut Biscotti. I love me some biscotti and we all know I still have cranberry on the brain. Maybe I will make these (minus the walnuts due to Miles’ allergy) to go along with home-roasted coffee holiday gifts… the wheeeeels are turning…
