Pumpkins baked into cookies, spiced with autumn’s cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, trigger memories of family, back-to-school and holiday time. Soft and aromatic, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies pack into lunch boxes and cookie jars. Kids will trade them in the schoolyard. Dogs’ll cry for them too. These Ambassadors of Fall announce the coming of Halloween. Simple to mix, fast in the oven, they’re scary good.

These no bake sweets are rich and citrusy. One will be enough to get you through the afternoon. Think of them in the same way you might eat a wrapped chocolate truffle. Here, I’m presenting them in glass, but don’t hesitate to tie packages of Orange Truffles with a short ribbon.

Traditional shortbread with four flavours of peppercorn sits deep within the niche of The Finer Cookie. Twisting flavours and textures modernizes the cookie experience. The confectioners’ sugar makes the shortbread crumble and dissolve in your mouth. You’ll encounter the sweetness first then the pepper appears in the distance and builds in intensity, poking you for another bite. Don’t be afraid. They are gorgeous with a glass of cold milk and you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried them before.

This fudgy Holy Mole Chocolate Cookie kicks with chipotle in adobo sauce and cinnamon – three of the essential ingredients in authentic Mexican mole sauce. With every bite, the heat builds, until you wash it down with a glass of cold milk. Once you’re soothed you’re ready for the next bite.
