Hey everyone, I wanted to post this recipe here because I think it's just the BEST cookie ever.  The basic dough makes the most yummy sugar cookies, the secret ingredient being ground cloves.  The Almond-Orange cookies are also spectacular!  I did make a slight change to the Chocolate-Walnut cookies (I switched it to Pistachio and I also topped them with store-bought frosting)  I really hope it's OK to post this here.  If not, feel free to delete it.  (but print it out first LOL)

Enjoy!!!   

Holiday Cookies: One Dough, Three Holiday Cookies
Recipe courtesy Dave Lieberman
Show:    Good Deal with Dave Lieberman (on the Food Network)
Episode:    Holiday Cocktail Party 2005
 
Basic Dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
 
Coarse sugar, for sugar cookies only
 
Chocolate and Walnut Cookies, recipe follows
Almond-Orange Cookies, recipe follows
 


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
 
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cloves in a small bowl. Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes in a standing mixer (preferably fitted with paddle attachment) or 6 minutes with a handheld beater. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Reduce speed to low, then add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
 
Form dough into a 12-inch log (2 inches in diameter) on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll up in the plastic wrap. Chill dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
 
Cut 1/2-inch thick slices from the log with a sharp knife and arrange on 2 ungreased large baking sheets, about 1-inch apart.
 
For basic sugar cookies, sprinkle generously with coarse sugar and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned and slightly puffed.
 
Cool on baking sheets for 3 minutes, then transfer with a metal spatula to racks to cool completely.


Chocolate and Walnut Cookies:
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
 
Make basic dough according to recipe above, but adding the cocoa powder to the flour mixture and folding in the nuts just after mixing the batter. Bake for 15 minutes and then cool on sheets for 3 minutes before transferring to racks to cool completely.


Almond-Orange Cookies:
1/2 orange, zested
1/2 cup sliced almonds, finely chopped in a blender to a coarse flour consistency
24 teaspoons chunky marmalade
1/2 cup sliced almonds, for topping
 
Make basic dough according to recipe above, but adding both the orange zest and ground almonds when you add the flour mixture.
 
When cookies are formed, make a slight depression in the middle and fill each with about 1 teaspoon marmalade. Top each with a good pinch of sliced almonds. Bake for 20 minutes and then cool on sheets for 3 minutes before transferring to racks to cool completely.
