dories-cookies-bookcover‘Tis the season for holiday treats, and Dorie Greenspan’s new collection of recipes, Dorie’s Cookies, is still the perfect fit after its 2016 release. Greenspan is a four-time James Beard Award-winner and two of her 12 previous cookbooks made the New York Times bestseller list, so rest assured her Sweet Potato Pie Bars (shown) won’t leave you scrambling for a backup. Greenspan, who splits her time between NYC, Paris and Westbrook, CT, says with ever-popular cut-out cookies, your refrigerator is a secret weapon. “Roll the dough out between sheets of parchment or wax paper and then give it a good chill or, better yet, freeze it,” says Greenspan. “Cold dough cuts cleanly and bakes with sharper edges.” Meaning your turkeys and Santas will come out perfectly.
