Along with the classic sugar cookies and gingerbread men this time of year, it can be fun to add some unexpected, savory twists to your holiday baking. Herbs and spices like pepper and rosemary can add heat and dimension to biscotti and shortbread. Cookies made with parmesan or blue cheese may be enjoyed as appetizers or just a little respite from all the other sugary treats in our cookie tins.
