The Cookstr Weekly: Bake Sale Best-Sellers and a Rosh Hashanah Menu

September 13, 2012

As the school year goes into full swing, there are plenty of opportunities for treats to share and batches to double for bake sales, birthdays, work events and more. To get you out of your chocolate-chip rut, here are ten recipes that are sure to stand out, from shortbread to cupcakes and brownies to secret-ingredient cookies. Kim Boyce’s Honey Hazelnut Cookies are crispy, crumbly, and infused with inventive flavors including cardamom, amaranth, orange peel and orange blossom water. For more back-to-school goodies, plus crafts and more, check out Cookstr’s Back to School board on Pinterest!

Rosh Hashanah foods are both delicious and symbolic, from the round challah that marks the cyclical passage of time to fish with the head intact, referring to the “head” of the Jewish New Year. Menus for Rosh Hashanah always emphasize apples and honey, for a sweet new year, and pomegranates are included with the blessing that one’s good deeds in the coming year should be as abundant as the fruit’s seeds. While rugelach like Abby Dodge’s Walnut Rugelach are eaten any time of year, they provide a bite-size ending to this Rosh Hashanah menu. Check out Cookstr’s Rosh Hashanah Pinterest board for more inspiration!
