Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies - Fairmont Waterfront
When we asked Pastry Chef Leanne Bentley to come up with a great holiday cookie - she (as always) rose to the challenge. Okay so this is not the first time that chocolate and mint have been paired, but the chewy 'after-dinner mint' texture of these cookies is truly unique. So long gingerbread...
Christmas Spice and Fig Cookies - Fairmont Chateau Montebello
Spend some quality time with friends or family baking those delicious Christmas cookies, and get into the festive spirit!
Christmas Wassailing Cookies - Fairmont Pittsburgh
Chef James was inspired by the traditional Christmas carol "Here We Come A-wassailing" when he created this cookie recipe. Even though the song is about caroling, "wassailing" can also refer to an ancient English apple harvest ritual. Part of the ritual includes drinking hot mulled cider, so James turned the drink into a Christmas cookie. Beer and wine make this a very unique cookie recipe, while ingredients like apples, butterscotch and holiday spices create familiar flavors that are perfect for this time of year.
