Shortbread Biscuits with Maple Walnut Icing
We’ve put a North American spin on the classic shortbread by using California walnuts and pure Canadian Maple Syrup.
American Sugar Cookies
Sugar Cookies are brilliant covered in buttercream and decorated. For a quick, festive finish, dip the cookies into buttercream about half way up the biscuit and dry on a wire rack.
Snickerdoodle cookies are great for kids as they can help with rolling the dough balls in the cinnamon & sugar mixture before baking.
American Molasses Cookies
Treacle, or Molasses, is so much more than gingerbread and sticky toffee pudding! These treacle biscuits are really a treat. Americans call them Molasses Cookies.
Pumpkin Pinwheel Cookie
Pumpkin Biscuits that use a classic combination of pumpkin, walnut, cinnamon and maple syrup. Roll into pretty pinwheels for presentation.
American Peanut Butter Cookies
Get chunky if you would like a cookie with little peanut bits or smooth for a biscuit that will melt in your mouth.
American No Bake Cookies
Get all of your ingredients weighed and measured because you need to be quick at the end to spoon out the cookies before they set.
American Cranberry Nut Cookies
If you can’t find dried cranberries, you can make these with mincemeat as an alternative to mince pies.
American Thumbprint Cookies
Same recipe but two different finishes. Make heart jam sandwich biscuits or roll the dough into balls and use your thumb to make an indent. Fill the indent with jam and bake.
American Coco Nut-Nut Cookies
Co-co-nut-nut Cookies. Fun to say. Delightful to eat. These are also great for sharing! Way better than a chocolate digestive with your cuppa.
