Bake Sale Worthy Cookies: Lemon Rosemary Cookies

In honor of our upcoming MKEfoodies Holiday Bake Sale on DEC 6, we're going to be sharing all sorts of great recipes for treats on our blog through the end of the month.

So, get your baking tools ready!


We love it when sweet meets savory in unexpected ways. And that's exactly what happens with these delicious lemony cookies that are ramped up with herbal notes from fresh rosemary.

Karen from Family Style Food says she hates bothering with rolling out dough -- so she looks for cookies that are easy to put together.

"These lemon cookies are a family classic for me," she says. "They have a little crunch from cornmeal (because I can’t resist that rustic touch), and smell so citrusy; the rosemary adds its pine-like essence that never fails to revive my holiday spirits."

Peppermint. It's a natural when it comes to flavorings for Christmas cookies. After all, what would the season be without the cheerful whimsy of candy canes and peppermint sticks?

These gorgeous peppermint sugar cookies were developed by Deborah of Taste and Tell for the Go Bold with Butter blog.

She describes them as "delicious and addictive" -- and we're pretty sure she's right on.

Pillowy and soft, these cookies mimic the tender bakeshop style sugar cookies everyone loves. Plus, they're topped with a delicious daub of peppermint frosting

How can you resist?

Bake Sale Worthy Cookies: Caramel Chocolate Crinkles

In honor of our upcoming MKEfoodies Holiday Bake Sale on DEC 6, we're going to be sharing all sorts of great recipes for treats on our blog through the end of the month.

So, get your baking tools ready!


"I love hiding edible treasures inside baked goods," says Megan from Pip & Ebby. "The obvious perk is consuming said treats, but I also love seeing others’ reactions upon biting into something unexpected."

And we love the way she thinks. These rich fudgy crinkle cookies have the added bonus of a burst of caramel inside -- making them sweet, delicious and very hard to resist.

Wouldn't they make an awesome gift, packaged in a box with a clear window, for the bake sale?
We think so.
