There are a few recipes that we turn to every holiday season, and this is one of them. This is a workhorse of a cookie recipe. Why? Well, it has everything you need for good cut-out sugar cookies. They mix up quickly, and they are full of sugar and butter so they keep well. This is a firm dough that can be rolled and cut more easily than Play-Doh, and yet it turns out a meltingly delicious cookie, with hints of almond, vanilla, and lemon.
When I was in Switzerland a couple weeks ago I visited Migros, a large supermarket, and I was shocked to see these eggs! No, not shocked to see raw eggs sitting on the shelves (in Europe eggs are invariably kept on the shelves, instead of in the refrigerated cooler) — I was surprised to see colored eggs. We're nowhere near Easter!
What are you cooking this weekend? Are you celebrating Passover? Or Easter, perhaps?

We had a tough time deciding which one of these international Easter breads to bake, but finally settled on a recipe from Slovenia. As soon as we mixed the dough and inhaled the intoxicating aroma of cardamom, citrus, almonds, and raisins, we knew we had made a delicious choice!
We have a secret fondness for those ginormous, over-the-top cakey muffins that walk the line between muffin and cupcake. (Case in point: Sarah Rae's Double Chocolate Butterscotch Muffins made us swoon.) These are not everyday muffins. No, these are most definitely special occasion muffins!
Here's a very special treat for spring and Easter from Bouchon Bakery! They sent us these gorgeous yet easy eggs made from Rice Krispies, rolled in bright, pretty colors and flavors. Read on for recipes for chocolate, peanut butter, and strawberry Rice Krispie Easter eggs!
We had a request from a Kitchn reader for a tutorial on making sugar eggs like family members had made in the past. We're always ready for a challenge and checked into assorted tutorials online. After multiple failed attempts (the tutorials lied) we have the method down pat and are here to share our simple secrets with you!
