Benne seed wafers or sesame seed cookies are salty and sweet treats most widely associated with the cuisine and customs of the winter holiday of Kwanzaa. Chewy and nutty, this toasted, caramelized sesame seed cookie is a crispy and crunchy snack waiting to be enjoyed!
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Lucky for you these brownie cookies are the perfect treat to bring to any holiday get together! Simply mix the ingredients into a bowl, roll them onto a sheet and bake them until they turn into beautiful chocolate cookies.
Before officially ringing in the new year, enjoy a cookie both sweet and salty, chewy and crispy, part breakfast food, part dessert – before you knock it, make sure you enjoy a bacon cookie or two or three!
These tiny cookies are quite the honey button treat! Traditionally made with honey and spices, Duvshaniots or honey buttons are sweet Israeli cookies that can be enjoyed during Rosh Hashanah or Hanukkah. Add a sweet or zesty glaze or substitute with powdered sugar and see them disappear from your winter holiday dessert spread!
While Santa and his elves are hard at work to prepare for Christmas Eve, get yourself and the little ones hard at work and play creating this quintessential Christmas treat. Have the kids stencil out as many Gingerbread Men as they can from the dough with a cookie cutter, let them get a little creative with decorating, and plate them for Santa. And don’t forget the milk!
Traditionally enjoyed during the Jewish holiday of Purim, Hamantaschen are triangular-shaped, butter-based cookies. Choose your choice of jam, nut, caramel, cheese or chocolatey filling and bite into this savory treat!

Guillermo Del Toro Says Working With Bradley Cooper on ‘Nightmare Alley’ Changed His Life
Guillermo del Toro might not be the most prolific director of our time, nor is he consistent with his films in terms of objective quality, but you can always be sure that his stories will always center around the most bizarre and absurd circumstances imaginable, giving way to a sense of originality that few other filmmakers bother with today. For the creative’s latest Nightmare Alley, which came out to somewhat mixed reviews a while ago, Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett were the stars who did most of the heavy lifting with their performances.
And while both of these are highly-acclaimed thespians in their own right, it seems that getting the opportunity to work with the former, in particular, has been a life-changing experience for del Toro. In a recent interview with TheWrap magazine, the director discussed working with the American Sniper star, revealing that he almost saw Cooper as his peer rather than an actor playing a part in his film.

One of Nicolas Cage’s Stupidest Action Movies Hunts Netflix Success
Nicolas Cage has made a lot of stupid movies in his career, but it would be very unfair to suggest that any of his onscreen efforts to have ticked that box are inherently terrible.
Of course, titles like Bangkok Dangerous, Next, Left Behind, and Trespass are indisputably awful, but some have managed to strike that sweet spot between ridiculousness and entertainment. Even the blockbuster National Treasure duo are dumb as hell, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a whole lot of fun.
