All-Purpose Homemade Dough

This dough is one of the most versatile I've ever used. It can be used for rolls, pizza crust, stromboli or calzone crust, pot pies, and more.

I was making braised short rib risotto on Christmas, but wanted to put out some snacks beforehand.

Fruitcake Cookies

We used to make fruitcake cookies every Christmas when I was little. My mom has come to visit the last several years for Christmas, and we've made them again every time. They're just so good! If you hate fruitcake, don't assume you'll hate these. They really don't taste like an actual fruitcake. The main similarity with… Continue reading Fruitcake Cookies
