Cranberry Cosmopolitan
“This is obviously my fave holiday recipe! Martha Stewart’s version is the most delish, but I sex it up by doubling the vodka, and that’s a good thing!”
—Joanna Coles, editor-in-chief, Cosmopolitan
1.5 oz. cranberry and orange 
vodka (sex it up by doubling it!)
1/2 oz. cranberry juice
1/2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 oz. orange flavored liqueur (Cointreau works best)
Ice cubes
Orange peel, for garnish
Cranberries, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice, orange liqueur, and ice; shake until well combined. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Twist orange peel over cocktail and add to glass. Garnish with skewered cranberries; serve immediately.
Sweet Potatoes with Toasted Marshmallows
“I grew up eating this dish for Thanksgiving. I love anything with marshmallows: they’re white fluffy perfection!”
—Lisa Perry, designer
1 kilo sweet potatoes,
boiled and pureed
3 eggs
3/4 cup golden sugar
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
2 cups marshmallows
Powdered sugar
Cinnamon powder
 
Boil sweet potatoes until done. Remove peeling from hot potatoes and mash well, removing all strings. Add all ingredients except marshmallows and cinnamon sugar; mix well. Spray or grease lightly a Pyrex or corning dish. Alternate layers of potatoes, and marshmallows until dish is filled. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar for added flavor. Bake at 350°F until dish is hot. Remove from oven and put marshmallows on top. Place again in oven to brown lightly.
Perfect 10 Kookies
“Heaven! They melt in your mouth.”
—Karlie Kloss, model
9/10 cups almond flour
2/5 cups gluten free whole oats
1/5 teaspoons baking soda
2/5 teaspoons baking powder

1/10 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 oz. slivered almonds, lightly toasted  
4 1/3 oz. mini dark chocolate chips
2 4/5 oz. olive oil

Heat oven to 300°F. In a stand mixer, with the paddle attachment, mix the dry ingredients together.  Add the liquid ingredients; paddle until well combined. Scoop cookies firmly with an ice cream scoop onto a parchment paper-lined sheetpan. Flatten each mound of cookie dough with your palms. Bake cookies at 300°F for eight minutes, or until golden brown.
