Homemade Milano Cookies

Homemade Milano Cookies have tender cookies with a nice crunch sandwiched around a layer of rich dark chocolate in the center! They taste even better than the store bought version!

When it comes to holiday baking, nothing says love like homemade. Some of our other favorite cookies are Homemade Butter Cookies and Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Shortbread Cookies.Milano cookies staked together on a white dish.

Milano Cookies from Scratch

When it comes to store bought, packaged cookies, Pepperidge Farms makes some of my favorites. Like their wonderful milano cookies that have a light, buttery crunch and a snap from a good amount of dark chocolate in the center. But although it’s easy to pick up a bag at the store, I wanted to recreate them at home since I almost always prefer homemade over store bought anyway.

Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family and holiday feasts—but also a time for possible distress for our animal companions. Pets won’t be so thankful if they munch on undercooked turkey or a pet-unfriendly floral arrangement, or if they stumble upon an unattended alcoholic drink.

Check out the following tips for a fulfilling Thanksgiving that your pets can enjoy, too:

  • Talkin’ Turkey: If you decide to feed your pet a small bite of turkey, make sure it’s boneless and well-cooked. Don’t offer her raw or undercooked turkey, which may contain salmonella bacteria. Do not give your pet the left over carcass–the bones can be problematic for the digestive tract.
  • No Bread Dough: Don’t spoil your pet’s holiday by giving him access to raw yeast bread dough. When a dog or cat ingests raw bread dough, the yeast continues to

America’s Dive Bars Are Among Those Hit Hardest by Alex Trebek’s Death

The dive tradition of watching ‘Jeopardy!’ over beers and shots will end with Trebek’s final episode on December 25

As 7 p.m. hit on Monday, the bartender at Do or Dive in Brooklyn killed the music and two ancient black-and-white TVs roared to life, as they do every night at 7. On the screens, Alex Trebek took the Jeopardy! stage from his pre-taped purgatory. “I can’t believe how quickly the year is moving along,” he told the audience. One of the categories in the first round was “Masks.”

A handful of people — after getting their temperatures checked and giving contact-tracing information — sat at the few tables in the narrow bar. One of them, Franco Del Valle, was drinking a Miller High Life and celebrating the last night watching Jeopardy! at Do or Dive almost daily over the past three years; the next day he and his girlfriend were … Read more
