We are always looking for delicious non-chocolate cookie varieties around here (for a certain chocolate hating child). These coconut almond cookies are perfect: soft, delicious, and full of flavor and texture.

DAY 6: Chocolate Orange Cookies

This is a perfect cookie for the chocolate orange lover! The orange flavor is not overwhelming, but orange zest and finely chopped orange chocolate make for a wonderfully rich chocolate cookie with a brownie-like outer crust and soft fudgy center.

Lindt Intense Orange Chocolate

I like to use the Lindt brand Intense Orange Dark Chocolate, but you can use any orange flavored dark chocolate.

Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies: Apricot Thumbprints

Apricot Thumbprints 1

DAY 4: Apricot Thumbprints

Thumbprint cookies of all varieties are always favorites around here. These apricot thumbprints are a light almond flavored shortbread cookie filled with sweet apricot jam and drizzled with an almond glaze.

To avoid cracks in your baked cookies, be sure to not pack the flour when measuring, and keep the dough covered while shaping cookies to keep the dough from drying out. (And don’t overbake. Cookies should be just barely starting to brown on the bottoms.)

For a fuller jam center, I like to add a little extra jam to the centers after baking.
