#AKFood: Sweets of the season

Maya Evoy

Oh the sugar cookie! Pillowy and soft. With frosting that tastes like eggnog? Oh, yes. If you need to have one right now, Maya Evoy of Alaska From Scratch has got you covered. Since we're going to holiday sugar world, you might also be interested in making these peppermint marshmallows.

Alaska food blogs are heavy with cookies right now. Megan Ancheta of Allergy Free Alaska is making big soft Paleo ginger molasses cookies. Nicole Pearce of Arctic Garden Studio is serving up double chocolate peppermint cookies. Megan Lierman and her kids are decorating gluten-free gingerbread cookies

And, there are other holiday treats, too. Kim Sunée made apple Calvados (apple brandy) gelees. Shannon Kuhn, writing for the Daily News, was mixing up pumpkin pie (espresso? chili powder? tofu?).

Finally, a little something savory-ish from Heidi Drygas of Chena Girl Cooks: maple-roasted sweet potatoes and squash.  

Happy holidays!
