        Anna Olson's European Gingerbread Cut-Out Cookies

        Here is a nice twist on the holiday classic, decorated gingerbread cookies. This recipe is inspired by speculoos, a notably buttery and nicely spiced cookie common in Europe.

Since the 1950's, endless variations have included Minted, Grand Marnier, Cherry, Pina Colada, Mocha, Peanut Butter and Orange. I have not seen a Raspberry Nanaimo Bar, and found that raspberry liqueur added a touch of elegance to this familiar three-layered bar cookie.

        Monster Cookies
        A few years ago we published a recipe courtesy of our customer Kathy (Nova Scotia Oatmeal Cookies). It's become one of our favourite oatmeal cookies so we decided to revisit the recipe and add a special Halloween twist. These cookies have a bumpy texture and subtle peanut butter flavour. We sometimes like to add healthy stuff like 2 tbsp of ground flax and hemp seeds to the batter. Whether you make them with the "healthy stuff" or not, all your trick-or-treaters will be sure to gobble them up!
