Great Biscuit (Crisp Cookie) Recipes in Pastry & Baking Posted September 7, 2012 We've recently set our daughter up in a small vintage clothes and jewellery shop in town and she's doing quite well. I decided to start baking a few things to give away in the shop and they are going down a storm - apparently they are being tweeted massively (whatever that means). So far I have tried Italian olive oil biscuits (very much like British shortbread) in Rosemary and Orange variations, an orange Torta de Santiago cake (extremely expensive to make for something thats given away free) and I'm going to try some classic almond biscotti this weekend. Does anybody have any suggestions/recipes for anything else? You might have gathered from the sort of things I've been cooking the area the shop is in is a bit arty so I couldn't get away with a hob-nob but I'm keen to explore more Italian/Spanish offerings.Oh, also any recommendations on good cookbooks that cover the same?I too was looking for some great cookies lately - nothing "vin ordinaire" for a cookie table station I am creating for my son's wedding next week, and while not all the ingredients are inexpensive they certainly are adaptable to some extent. I found quite a number of great recipes from a site called the Luna Cafe and in fact you can find the links and descriptions to what I used on my recent blog post http://cuisinetc-weddings.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-cookie-table-new-trend-or-adaptable.htmlWe really loved Susan Bradley (Luna Cafe) cookies that had added fine cornmeal to the flour - the results being a crisp crunchy cookie that as she mentions "ages" well - we made ours 2-3 weeks ago and sampling some last night (it's a tough job you know) found them to be almost caramel in flavor like a good shortbread. Her playful inventiveness - such as the garam marsala cookie recipe will give you a great platform to jump off of and IMO take your cookie repetoire to the next level. I found great recipes by following links to Dorie Greenspan's site - an article in NY Mag about her new bakery lead me to search for both the World Peace Cookie recipe (thank you google and the internet~!!) and the struesel jammers, both of which I adapted and tweeked to suit my own purposes. We baked over 2,000 pieces of cookies and bars, starting with the ones that "aged well" and that could sit out stored airtight, and then many batches that needed to be frozen and will be pulled out a few days in advance of the wedding.We are even serving warm cookies and cold milk shots as an added surprise after the cake is cut.Check out the blog - I will also post more photos on my blog after the wedding next week showing the final products set out beautifully - the cookie table tradition is amazing and I am so excited to finally be producing one!!!
