Cookie Stamps are trending big right now and with good reason. For such a seemingly simple and inexpensive tool, cookies go from boring and mundane to edible works of art. Nordic Ware Geo Cast Cookie Stamps has recently launched several cookie stamp designs, sold in sets of three, that are engineered to create perfect imprints. Alternatively, if you are interested in standing out from the crowd, Etsy offers some old-school, one-of-a-kind finds, including springerle boards, textured rolling pins, and stamps made of wood, glass, or clay.
Using just one bowl, this bright and spicy cookie recipe comes together in minutes and fills your house with the aroma of magic. The dough holds up beautifully to cookie stamps, which make these confections go from “wow” to “wowwwww” in a snap. If you don’t have a cookie stamp, press down the dough with the bottom of a glass and drizzle the lemon glaze over the cookies… but, honestly, we really recommend you consider a stamp of your own.
Gnocchi al pomodoro—handmade with love
By Larissa Groff / August 27, 2020
Gnocchi rolled on countertop
Let’s just be clear from the beginning: In this recipe we’re talking about real gnocchi. Not those crude chewy pieces of yellowy rubber that you can buy in some supermarkets. Those shouldn’t even be allowed to be called gnocchi. No, I’m talking about those fluffy little pieces of heaven–light and airy just like they’re supposed to be.
An Italian biscuit which makes you think you’re in Tuscany for a sweet minute: Cantucci. These traditional almond biscuits come from a place called Prato in Tuscany which is why they’re sometimes also known as “Biscotti di Prato”. They fit perfectly with your afternoon tea—or even better: With a glass of the sweet Italian dessert wine called “Vin Santo”.
This lovely vegan dish is not only really healthy, it’s also beautiful to look at. Even on a rainy grey day you can find some joy, with a full plate of colors: the purple of the beetroot, the orange of the orange slices, the green of the basil and the shiny caramelized pecan nuts. And the best thing about this salad: It’s super easy to make.
