Holidays = Desserts = Happiness
Some of the recipes here are my Italian family heirlooms - simple cookies that squeeze every bit of goodness out of citrus and nuts. Others are more recent additions that I've found over the years and have earned a place on my holiday table. Some are easy as can be, others require a little more time to make. Some of them are elegantly understated, while a few are completely decadent. They are all refreshing changes from the glut of store-bought sugar cookies and candy canes that show up in December. Make a couple for your cookie tray this year and surprise your friends with a little variety. It's the spice of life, they say. And it's most definitely the flavor of Christmas.
