Sugar Cookies
This basic cookie recipe is very well tried and trusted – great for when you want something to go with a cup of coffee or you just like having a fail-safe play in the kitchen. I don’t like making huge batches of cookies because, quite frankly, I will just sit down and eat them in one fell swoop – call it portion control or a distinct lack of will power, but small batches always work for me. Of course, if you have guests or are baking for a crowd, simply double, triple or quadruple the quantities to suit. Just don’t skip the refrigeration step or your cookies will fall more than a little flat. Once chilled, the dough keeps in the fridge for up to 1 week, so you can have freshly baked cookies in around 20 minutes. And check out the variations, too – there’s something for everyone… personally, I like the stuffed sandwiches the best but maybe that’s because I’m greedy. Enjoy! — Aine Carlin, Keep it Vegan.

Maple Spun Sugar
“I’ll admit it — this stuff is ridiculous. It’s whimsical, it’s beautiful, and it also has a little bit of that ‘who would do that at home?’ quality. In short, it’s the ultimate party trick. It’s also a whole lot of fun once you get the hang of it. After forming the strands, you can either form them into clouds and pop them onto sticks or wind it around a plated dessert and prepare to blow minds and take names.” — Shauna Sever, author of Real Sweet: More Than 80 Crave-Worthy Treats Made with Natural SugarsClick here for cotton candy recipes. Or, click here for our best maple recipes.
