The Associated Press compiled a list of 12 fruit-inspired cookie recipes perfect for the holiday season. You can see the recipes at MassLive.com of Western Massachusetts.
The list includes honeyed apricot tassies, cherry lime brownies, oatmeal blues drop cookies, strawberry pistachio icebox cookies, no-bake cranberry coconut bites, mango marshmallow bars, apple-orange spice drops, peanut butter and jelly cookies, ice cream cone caramel date bars, sweet-and-salty kitchen sink cookies, brown butter fig thumbprint cookies, and tropical almond macaroons.
We’re particularly interested in the oatmeal blues drop cookie, which the Associated Press described as:
“Everyone loves a basic oatmeal cookie. But these are no ordinary oatmeal cookies. In addition to studding them with chewy, sweet dried blueberries, we've also given them a sugary-and-salty topping. The result is a deeply flavored, addictive combination that elevates an otherwise simple treat.”
Are you sending treats as holiday gifts this season? If so, you can try baking them yourself using one of the recipes above. Or you can leave the baking to us but ordering fudgy chocolate brownies or gourmet cookies from Fairytale Brownies.
