Buttery and flaky, these canapés are like little tarts, but much easier to make. Follow our topping suggestions—or try your own: sautéed mushrooms and stilton cheese, caramelized onions and anchovies... let your imagination be your guide. Prep and Cook Time: about 45 minutes, plus 1 1/2 hours of chilling and cooling time. Notes: This dough is the ultimate kitchen workhorse. It's fast to make and will keep in the freezer for up to a week (let thaw 1/2 hour before rolling) or in the fridge for 3 days. You can also bake the dough a day ahead and top it just before serving. This recipe can easily be doubled, but if you want to triple or quadruple it, make 2 separate batches of dough.
Apples sold in bulk in bags, which tend to be smaller than those sold individually, are the ideal size for these treats. You'll find white dowels at hobby and craft stores, or use wooden craft sticks. Store Candied Apples in an airtight container for up to three days.

To help us learn more about Persian (a.k.a. Iranian) food, we turned to culinary authority Najmieh Batmanglij. In addition to insight on Persian culinary traditions, she provided us with recipes from her book New Food of Life. What to buy: Pomegranate juice has exploded in popularity and is now available at most high-end grocery stores and online. When buying saffron, choose threads rather than powder, which is too often adulterated with turmeric. Angelica is frequently used in Persian cooking. Ground angelica can be found at Middle Eastern markets, in spice stores, or online.

You can clean the Brussels sprouts and peel and cut shallots the day before making this dish. Note: A pan with a wide, flat bottom, such as a skillet, will reduce a liquid much faster than a high-sided saucepan. In general, reduce cream mixtures at a low boil so they don't boil over, but stocks or wine can be reduced over high heat. Prep: 17 minutes, Cook: 25 minutes.

A gourmet’s alternative to a plain old roasted bird: brined, roasted breast and the legs cooked confit-style. What to buy: Look for a fresh turkey. They end up crispier and tastier than previously frozen ones. If you do go with a frozen turkey, make sure it’s completely thawed before roasting (this will take several days in the refrigerator). Duck fat can be found at butcher shops or at the meat counter of gourmet grocery stores. Game plan: To get an accurate reading, measure the temperature of the turkey on the inside of the thigh and make sure the thermometer is not touching the bone.
Use your favorite salad greens for this tasty first course. We liked the spiciness of arugula, but any other greens will work.
Similar to panettone in its sweet yeastiness, pandoro (“golden cake”) is also known as a Christmastime treat. With its long preparation time, special star-shaped mold, and tall stature, it is a bit of a challenge to make at home, but worth the effort. Traditionally, pandoro is flavored with lemon zest or citron, but here we used orange zest. Special equipment: Star-shaped pandoro molds can be found at specialty kitchen stores or online. Game plan: Some ovens come with a “proof” setting; if yours does, set it to 90°F. A consistently warm environment will help the dough rise more quickly. This recipe was featured as part of our Christmas Day Feast, Italian Style menu.

This recipe was featured as part of our story on The Last Kodachrome Christmas.
A pan-seared steak is one of life’s great pleasures. Here we substitute bison for beef and top it with a rich brandy-butter pan sauce. Game plan: If you want the richness of beef without any of the guilt, bison is your answer. The only downside to this low-fat meat is that it dries out quickly, so cooking these steaks beyond medium rare is not recommended. This recipe was featured as part of our Easy Weeknight Dinners photo gallery.
