Alice medrichs coconut macaroons

Recipe is available online widely.

Added a tsp of cardamom and a couple of tablespoons of finely chopped pistachios. These sold out in a couple of days , main consumer being me!!! I loved these. Reminded me of coconut barfis and the recipe has some protein to boot.

Cardamom butter cookies

These were sold out in a single day. Baby G and Hubs leading the assault .

Base recipe from Serious eats 
Added about a teaspoon of fresh cardamom powder, brushed with egg white and springled with a mixture of pistachio and granulated sugar.

Best crisp ginger molasses cookies / ginger snaps

From serious eats
So the first time i made these , i made the disastrous substitution of whole wheat pastry flour.Do not do that! Use normal whole wheat flour ( i used gold medal).

These continue crisping up over a period of time ( they lasted about a week at my home)

Dundee cake from 80 cakes around the world

Made this a couple of months back when my uncle was visiting. Easy to make and that marmalade added a nice orange peel flavor with no work. It was on the very sweet side for me but hubs and uncle scarfed it up precisely because it was so sweet. The almond decoration was very easy to make and is a keeper.

Pistachio strawberry ( fraisee cake)

Made this cake from epicurious( link here) and subbed a pistachio marzipan topping for the almond marzipan to complement the pistachio in the cake. It was mind blowingly delicious
