Anise Cookies (Springerle)
I truly loved this cookie. It was an easy and convenient recipe. I thought I would make the dough and let it sit in fridge overnight. Unfortunately, I came down with a bad cold and dough had to sit a couple of extra days. I thought it might have an ill effect on the cookies. I rolled out the dough in the morning, let it sit out all day, baked at night. Truly wonderful. The subtle flavors, the texture and the scent in the kitchen was fabulous! This is now a Christmas tradition. BTW, I did substitute the extract for the oil. And as the recipes states, do not let the cookies brown, it looses the nice texture. Bravo!

Hot Corn Dip
Super easy and fast. I added a little cayenne pepper for an extra zing. Some cheddar on top for a little extra color. Made this for a party, they were scraping the bowel. I recieved three calls the next day asking for the recipe!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
I loved this recipe, loved it, loved it. Very easy and great twist on the standard chips and salsa. I used a hot rasberry jam with the fruit to add an extra zip, it was great. Just make sure you bake the chips enough so they stay crunchy with the fruit salsa. Bravo, bravo!!
