Red Velvet Cookies
These cookies really look and taste like red velvet cake. They have a very soft, cake-like consistency. The dough was a little sticky, and be careful not to touch it or you will turn your fingers red! I added some peppermint- white chocolate chips to make them a little Christmasy and then topped them with a white chocolate drizzle. Very festive looking.

Russian Tea Cakes I
This is a favorite holiday cookie. I've started substituting roasted unsalted cashews for the more traditional walnuts. The cashews have a buttery taste and complement the cookie well.

Peppermint Meringues
I'm a big fan of these light, airy meringues. I made two batches - the first one following the recipe as given except I used Betty Crocker peppermint sugar crystals to sprinkle on top instead of the candy canes. The second batch I tried with Splenda for baking. I read in a review that they wouldn't set up correctly with Splenda, but I couldn't tell the difference between the two batches! I think the secrect is to use the Splenda that is specifically designed for baking. With the Splenda instead of sugar, these cookies are almost calorie free and perfect for someone who is watching their sugar intake or fat. I made mine very small and they are the perfect bite-sized snack. I'm adding some extra information to my review - I tried yet another batch using 1/2 cup of Splenda for Baking and after I had stiff peaks, I gently folded in 1/4 cup sifted unsweetened cocoa powder. The trick is to fold very gently; if its not completely mixed it's OK. Then I piped them into very small kiss shapes and topped with the peppermint sugar crystals. They were wonderful, with just enough of a chocolate taste to satisfy a craving and virtually no calories at all! The Splenda for Baking works fine, just don't use regualr Splenda!
