Perhaps the most coveted cookie of the season, these wreath-inspired shortbread cookies—created by the ever-so-creative Craftsman & Wolves team—graced the cover of Bon Appétit’s 2014 holiday issue. If you can’t get your hands on edible flowers, candied rosemary and cranberries make a simple—yet stunning—decoration.
The intricate patterns make these cookies look complicated, but they’re actually as easy as can be—you can make patterns with an embossing mat, a lace doily, an embossed glass or a decorative rolling pin. Simply roll over or press to imprint the dough, and voila!
When it comes to holiday tradiition, this cookie is a big one for our Editor-In-Chief, Aida. Her great grandmother first made these for the holidays and they've been made every year since for four generations!
