Callie, you're right! We goofed. When we were pulling the different cookie recipes together for this project, we got confused about which cookie was in the November Saveur, and which was in the December issue. The Icelandic chocolate-cornflake cookie is indeed the one from December. Oh well! At least the Sarah Bernhardt cookies were a fun challenge -- and delicious for some of the bakers. Here's the recipe for those:

Earlier this week, one of our commentors referred to herself and her friends -- and all the other folks involved in this Cover-to-Cover cookie project -- as the "Bitten Bakers." How great is that?! We love the idea of a... Continue reading

Yes, if anyone's tried this, let us know! We WILL say, though, that this punch is already quite high-octane. So maybe the soda water is the better way to go. (It ain't called a "knockout" for nothing...)
Port should work fine!
Maker's Mark is what we always keep on hand, and it's very fine in this punch. (We also always have Bulleit, but we save that for straight sipping.)

Oh purists will love these! It's like regular mashed potatoes with the flavor turned up. And gravy on these would be great!
You could absolutely make this a day early. We'd suggest storing it on the counter, covered in plastic wrap.

Pecans would be great! But you would want to toast them first so they don't get soft in the filling. Just toast them in a skillet on the stovetop -- or in a sheet pan in the oven -- for 8 or 10 minutes. You want them toasted but not burned. Let them cool, cut them into small pieces, and sub for the peanuts. If you make it, you'll have to let us know what you think!
