Gingersnap Ice Cream Sandwiches

Put a winter spin on this summer favorite with Guy Fieri’s recipe. The best part is that you’re only homemaking the cookie and pairing it with your favorite store-bought ice cream!

Peppermint Meringues

These minty meringues are easier than you think – and gluten-free! Don’t let the fear of making meringue keep you from these treats, just take our best meringue tips:

  • Wipe the bowl of your stand mixer and your whisk attachment with lemon juice to erase any lingering fat. This helps the meringue whip to its fullest.
  • Be generous with the cream of tartar, it really helps meringue whip to stiff peaks.
  • Wait to add your sugar until your egg whites are foamy, and don’t worry about using superfine sugar, regular granulated sugar will work just as well!
  • You’ve achieved stiff peaks when you can dip the whisk into the bowl, pull it up, and the meringue on the whisk and in the bowl says exactly as it is, and no tips fold over.

Peanut Butter Brownie Swirls

This delightful Christmas cookie is a three-in-one – brownies, peanut butter cookies, and sugar cookies. Though they may take a while to whip up, you’ll find that the effort is more than worth it in the end!

Super Chocolatey Buttons

This is the perfect recipe for all chocoholics! They’re ooey-gooey and, as the name suggests, very chocolatey! These chocolate treats are sure to be a hit.

Millionaire Shortbread

This isn’t your average shortbread – this is shortbread supreme. It has a layer of light, buttery shortbread cookie, a decadent layer of caramel, and a chocolate layer to top it all off. There truly is no better combination!
