How To Make Glazed Lemon Dream Cookies By Gail Simmons

Naturally, you all were in holiday mode in December — whipping up festive treats, like glazed lemon cookies, antipasto trees and monkey bread (all of which, in our opinion, can be enjoyed throughout the entire year).

But, like always (and we love you for it!), you also ate up Rach's pasta dishes, like her hearty vegetarian bolognese and sausage ragu, to name a few — and we're guessing those will remain favorites throughout winter.

So, it's a new year, but we're not judging if you're making these dishes all over again this month and beyond. (Because we're right there with ya!)
