Spritz Cookies

My wife’s family isn’t Scandinavian, but Spritz cookies are supposed to be. Still, her grandmother passed down this recipe (it’s even in her handwriting, if since scanned and shipped about via email), and whether it came from the nearby settlement of Swedes in Kansas or a church cookbook, it’s still one fine way to celebrate the season.

Anchor Christmas Ale

Even if the season descends too soon, there’s no harbinger of the holidays more welcomed at our house than the release of Anchor Christmas Ale. Those clever brewers in San Francisco who make Anchor Steam and the one-time hops benchmark Liberty Ale (remember those simpler times?) are releasing their 33rd annual ale with a pine tree label and bit of resinous kick, to boot.
