So I volunteered to make some cookie trays for a “coffee talk” at school. After some self inflicted hemming and hawing on my part, I put together a list of five different cookies to include on the trays. I thought since it’s for a coffee and tea break, I should include simple cookies that pair well with a hot beverage. The event was late morning so it needed to be things that weren’t too sugary, but past the breakfast pastry stage. This immediately brings me to shortbread or similarly dry cookies like biscotti. I’ve already made the standard shortbread several times for things at school so I thought I would add some variation.
With those considerations in mind, I decided to make Cream Cheese Walnut Cookies, Ricotta Cookies, and Double Chocolate Walnut biscotti (to add some chocolate to the mix). Then since it was near purim, I felt compelled to make Hamentashen. And to roundout the tray I added some small brownie squares.
Over the next couple weeks I’ll be posting the recipes for the Cream Cheese Walnut Cookies, Ricotta Cookies, and Double Chocolate Walnut Biscotti. Get Excited!

yum- great cookie tray 🙂
Are the ricotta cookies the ones with the green icing? I’ve narrowed it down to those by process of elimination. I’m intrigued to see the recipe for those.
