GEMINIDS METEOR SHOWER Pull up a lawn chair, wrap yourself in a blanket, and enjoy one of the best light shows of the year. A new moon on Thursday night means inky skies and optimal viewing conditions. Meteors should start to fall as early as 9 or 10 p.m. But during the shower’s peak (1 to 3 a.m.), you may count as many as 100 shooting stars an hour if your area has little light pollution.

BRUNO MARS’S UNORTHODOX JUKEBOX No sophomore slump here! Mars, whose “Grenade” blew up the singles charts last year, is back with a mix of ballads and club anthems laced with pop, hip-hop, soul, R&B, rock, and electronica. His energetic swagger courses through the album, from the cool, synth-heavy “Moonshine” to the melodic “Young Girls,” which showcases his soaring tenor and hopeless romanticism.

DECEMBER

This week in Las Vegas some 120 cowboys are duking it out for gold belt buckles and more than $6 million in prize money at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, a.k.a. the Super Bowl of Rodeos. We asked Trevor Brazile, last year’s all-around champ (below), what it’s like to be in that ring: “You enter into the box and see the lights and the sellout crowd all at one time and it’s pretty overwhelming—but equally or more exciting. Just figuring out how to contain all that is the secret. Rodeo is the original extreme sport.” (10 p.m. ET every night through Dec. 15; GAC)

Cookies ( A LOVE STORY )

YES, WE THE FIVE WINNERS OF PARADE’S CHRISTMAS COOKIE CONTEST. KEEP READING FOR ALL THE GREAT RECIPES, PLUS THE SWEET TALES BEHIND THEM. Cover photograph by Con Poulos Opening photograph by Francis Janisch

P

roust had his madeleine. We have snickerdoodles, rum balls, nut rolls, and sugar cookies to transport us to our youth, back to those toasty kitchens where we gathered every December with our moms and grandmas to bake cookies, the smells of butter and cinnamon perfuming the air. Before there were prepaid gift cards, homemade cookies were what we gave to neighbors and church friends and teachers for the holidays—and, of course, to Santa, along with a glass of milk and a hand-scrawled note. It’s those sorts of treats we had in mind when we asked readers to submit their favorite recipes for PARADE’s 2012 Holiday Cookie Bake-Off. Nearly 200 submissions came in from all over America, and deciding on the best of the bunch proved a challenge. But our panel of cookie-loving editors, using not only taste but ease of preparation and creativity as criteria, narrowed them down to the very best in five categories. The lucky winners each received a KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, with the highest-scoring recipe earning its entrant a KitchenAid Dual Fuel Double Oven Range. We hope that you’ll try at least one or two of our picks and that you’ll enjoy every bite as much as we did. Like the holidays themselves, these morsels are sweet, filled with goodness, and sure to be gone before you know it.

TILL YOU DROP

Host your own cookie exchange! Here’s how.

1 Karen’s story: “This ridiculously easy recipe came out of my obsession with peanut butter. I can’t get enough of it, whether it’s smooth or crunchy, regular or honey flavored. These flourless cookies are one of my favorite indulgences, but what makes them truly special is that I can share them with the glutenfree folks in my life.”

GLUTEN-FREE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES

MAKES 24

1 1 1 1 ½

cup sugar cup peanut butter egg tsp vanilla extract cup crushed peanuts

1. Preheat oven to 325°F. 2. In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla until well blended. 3. Form cookies using a small scoop; place on a parchmentlined baking sheet. Flatten each cookie and make a crisscross pattern with fork tines. Sprinkle with peanuts. 4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. PER SERVING: 110 cal, 11g carbs, 4g protein, 7g fat, 10mg chol, 50mg sodium, 1g fiber

Enlist friends to bake several batches of their favorite cookie. Put together a list of all the cookies ahead of time to avoid duplicates. (You don’t want six different kinds of rum balls or gingerbread men; you may have to ask someone to switch.)

2

Ask bakers to bring multiple copies of their recipe—and to note whether their cookie has any suspected allergens, like peanuts or tree nuts. Also have them bring empty containers so they can take a variety of cookies home.

3

After guests arrive, set out samples of all the cookies, enough so everyone can taste at least one of each. Serve coffee, tea, hot chocolate, mulled wine, and milk alongside. To mix things up, include some savory snacks like vegetables and dip or cheese and crackers.

4

Decide in advance whether you want to give out prizes (for, say, the most creative or prettiest cookie). If so, have festive-looking ballots on hand, as well as simple prizes, like a set of cookie cutters or a jar of colored sprinkles.

5

Before guests leave, help them pack up an assortment of cookies. Provide plenty of plastic wrap, tissue paper, and foil. And remind your friends to take along copies of recipes.

The Cake That Stole Xmas Cookies, shmookies! In my household, other holiday desserts reign supreme.

M

y mom was never a fan of the traditional Christmas cookie. Why spend all that time stirring, kneading, and cutting dough just to bring into the world the same flat-faced angels that were sliding out of Mrs. Hutchinson’s oven? Where was the creativity in that? Keep in mind our house hosted the only nativity scene where the Wise Men mingled with elves in striped pajamas. Instead of cookies, Mom made cheese balls. This was an all-month affair, starting with three weeks of Mom telling everyone she knew that she was going to make cheese balls. She loved everything about them: the shopping, the creaming and folding, and, finally, standing at the counter with cheese goop up to her elbows. By the time she finished molding a cheese ball, it was the size of a small planet. “Quick!” she’d yell. That was the signal for one of us kids to rush over with the Christmas platter. She’d pick up the ball with two hands and plop it down with a satisfied groan while we tried to keep our knees from buckling. Eventually, someone had to slide a cracker into Mom’s masterpiece. Always an awkward moment. We’d gather round the table and stare at the

warming mound inching its way to the edges of the doily. Finally, Mom would look at Dad and say, “Well? Who wants to go first?” No matter how gently he slid in that first Triscuit, she would sigh. After I had children, I started my own Christmas baking

traditions. I am my mother’s daughter, so I, too, have a tin full of unused cookie cutters. I do make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, but they’re freeform. Think mini volcanoes, post-lava. The kids love them. Every year, they walk through the door and immediately hoard their own stash, then spend the rest of their visit hurling accusations of greed at each other. So Christmasy. Fortunately, my Christmas Day rum cake saves the day. Technically, it’s not my rum cake. The recipe came from a person who didn’t like me very much, which she mentioned in

December 1996. “You’re way too cheerful, okay?” she said. After I laughed in response, I mistakenly thought she was going to slug me. So embarrassing to duck for no reason. Anyway, I think she started to feel guilty, because the next week she showed up with a rum cake. It was delicious. When I asked for the recipe, she agreed, on one condition. “Just stop with the Smurfette routine,” she said. Deal. I get teary-eyed every time I make the rum cake. This may have something to do with my single-mother days, which is when the rum cake made its debut in our family. When you’re in the thick of raising your kids by yourself, you tend to keep a running list of everything you think you’re doing wrong. I recommend taking a lot of family pictures as evidence to the contrary. Which brings me to the framed photo resting on the windowsill in my kitchen. In the picture (left), my daughter Caitlin stands in a kitchen from another time, another place. It’s Christmas, 1997. She wields a large spoon and the face of the next generation of family bakers as she prepares to glaze the rum cake. Not one angel cookie in sight, but she is smiling. That, my friends, is the power of my rum cake. For Connie’s famed rum cake recipe, go to Parade.com/connie

don’t believe the storm itself is a threat, they won’t believe a rescue could possibly be in their future. Third, people don’t need to suffer even more financial loss to learn from the experience of being saved— the fright will be more than enough.

TEST YOUR LOGIC The dealer for a game of bridge is interrupted by the teapot whistling. After everyone is served tea, no one can remember where she stopped. She suggests reshuffling and starting over. One player is a pain. He wants everyone to receive exactly the same cards that he or she would have received if the deal had been completed. The other players refuse to take the time to count their cards. Can the dealer accommodate him? (Bridge is a four-player game; all 52 cards are dealt.)

ANSWER: YES. SAY THAT THE DEALING HAD BEGUN CLOCKWISE WITH THE PLAYER TO THE DEALER’S LEFT. SHE SHOULD NOW TAKE THE BOTTOM CARD FROM THE REMAINDER OF THE DECK AND GIVE IT TO HERSELF, THEN CONTINUE DEALING TO HER RIGHT (COUNTERCLOCKWISE) FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE DECK.

With modern weather-prediction technology, we can give endangered residents plenty of warning ahead of a hurricane. Yet many people choose to ignore evacuation orders, and rescuers often risk their own lives to save them. Should those who didn’t evacuate

We live in an area which is known for very cold winters. Our facility is nearly 7000 square feet in area. When we began to utilize the first unit we were amazed to see how even the heat was for the entire living room area. We ordered a second and a third unit which now warms the entire home. Much to our surprise we are saving over $250 a month and had the lowest expense for heating we have ever experienced here. I would heartily recommend your products to anybody who is interested in really nice, even heat in their home and also interested in saving on their utility expenses. Dennis Crystal, Troy, MT (Retired Airline Pilot)

Enclosed you will find printouts of our electric bill and gas/heating/cooking bills for 2007 - 2008. Our gas company, AmeriGas, stated that more money was saved than would show up because of the cost going up. We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE ® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

3 million people beat cold weather and heating bills with EdenPURE ®

The next 10 days Ohio factory giving away breakthrough heaters at $229 savings Never be cold again How it works:

Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio

I know why millions of Americans are saving on their heating bills with the EdenPURE ® Portable Infrared Heaters. And now you can save up to $229 on new EdenPURE ® models, our biggest savings ever, on heaters I personally rank #1 in North America. I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE ® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. American Labor, American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE ® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE®s). EdenPURE® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE ® owner I rank EdenPURE® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE® promise. EdenPURE® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North Amer-

PERSONAL

MODEL 750

As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a super-safe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. ica. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. That’s a 30% increase in efficiency! And EdenPURE® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of heating our homes and apartments will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE ® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat

Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE ® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE ® . You see the EdenPURE® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE®’s “bone-warming” infrared heat. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE ® ’s engineers have taken the original concept through revolutionary changes. EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided

by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania. Researchers have discovered copper as an antimicrobial is far more effective than stainless steel or even silver. That’s why our special antimicrobial copper is marked Cu+ and used in hospitals on touch surfaces. So your EdenPURE® heater is continuously pushing soft, healthy, infrared heat throughout your room.

Sunday with ...

PARADE Why did you decide to share your wedding with the world? We thought it would be fun. I’m used to being in front of the camera, so it seemed natural. It’s just like having a videographer, only on a big production level! It will be a cool thing to have for the future and to show our kids.

How did you involve your daughter in the festivities? We wanted her to be the star flower girl, expecting her to steal the show. We tried to schedule the whole wedding around her nap so she’d be in a good mood.

Mario Lopez The outgoing TV personality talks about marriage and his pride in being a first-generation American

rule was that the cameras had to go off once the reception really started kicking in—after three or four dances—because that’s when the real partying begins! I think that was great advice. Khloé has had a hard time winning over some X Factor viewers. Do you feel protective of her when she receives criticism? We’ve been friends for a long time, and she’s a sweetheart. People are always going to have something to say; that’s just the business we’re in. It comes with the territory. I know that and she knows that. I have her back 100 percent. I told her to just be herself and have fun with this thing.

With his daughter, Gia, at home in Los Angeles

You have a lot of famous friends. Is it ever difficult FATHERHOOD to report stories on Extra IS THE BEST that involve them? ROLE I’VE EVER Yeah, it gets difficult, HAD. I WANT especially when it’s not TO HAVE the best of news. But it’s MORE KIDS RIGHT AWAY.” my job, and I try not to do anything in a salacious way. I just report on it and move on. I try to put a positive spin on it if I can or give them the opportunity to clear things up. Do you expect marriage to and all of us having the same change your relationship with last name. Courtney? I anticipate everything just Your X Factor cohost, Khloé Kardashian, tied being better. The only the knot on TV to thing that I think basketball star Lamar will change is her Get one of Mario’s favorite Mexican Odom. Did she share last name. I’m lookrecipes at any tips with you? ing forward to her Parade.com/lopez She told me her No. 1 being Mrs. Lopez

You got your big break at 16 on Saved by the Bell. Do you ever catch reruns on TV? Once in a while, if I’m channel surfing and it happens to be on. It was a wonderful experience, and I got along with all the kids great. I’m just stunned that it’s still on TV more than 20 years later. I get flattered if people

M

ario Lopez is a tightly scheduled man. Consider this hectic scenario for his Dec. 1 wedding to Courtney Mazza, whom he met in 2008 when they appeared in A Chorus Line on Broadway: leaving right after the live taping of The X Factor, which he cohosts, and jumping on a plane to meet Mazza and their 2-year-old daughter, Gia, in Punta Mita, Mexico, for their night-before party with family and friends. (A special on the wedding is slated to be rebroadcast today on TLC.) A honeymoon was out, as The X Factor is nearing its season finale and Lopez, 39, also juggles hosting duties for Extra. “Our life is a honeymoon; we’re very blessed,” Lopez tells Erin Hill. “But we’ll take one during my next hiatus!”

recognize me as A. C. Slater, because that means I haven’t aged too poorly!

How many vegetables have you had today? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Was Courtney a fan of the show growing up? She was. She actually has said she was a Zack Morris fan. He [Mark-Paul Gosselaar] is a good guy; she’s got great taste. But I got the girl in the end, so it worked out. How do you spend Sundays? I work a lot on the weekends, but I’m home on Sunday no matter what, even if I have to take a red-eye. We like to sleep in and have breakfast together; we’ll go for a long run with my dog and my daughter in a jogging stroller. Then we’ll go to church and to an all-you-can-eat Mexican mariachi brunch. What motivates you to succeed? I’m a first-generation American, and my parents were hardworking, blue-collar folks. I’ve always had a strong work ethic. I want to be a positive role model and inspire Latino kids to have faith in themselves and say, “Hey, if this Mexican kid from Chula Vista can do it, why not me?” What would people be surprised to know about you? I’m a big foodie. I eat more than anyone you’ll ever know. I go to bed thinking about food, and I wake up thinking about it. My wife is 100 percent Italian and I’m 100 percent Mexican, and those are my favorite cuisines. We cook great meals together.

William’s story: “My mom was a true Scandinavian and a great baker; I loved her Linzer tarts. Thirteen years ago, my friend John gave me a batch of these cookies for Christmas. With one taste, I was in heaven. Through the years, we’ve perfected this recipe together. I was taught that food is love. When you make food for someone, you share your love.”

take less than 30 seconds; for a crunchier, nuttier cookie, chop for just 15 to 20 seconds). 2. In a medium bowl, combine nut mixture, remaining flour, butter, confectioners’ sugar, zest, and egg. Mix well. 3. Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic. Chill for at least ½ hour. 4. Preheat oven to 350°F. 5. Roll out dough halves on a floured surface. Using small round cookie cutters, cut out cookie bottoms and tops. With a patterned cutter (we use a snowflake shape), punch a center hole in tops. 6. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until light gold. Watch carefully. Cool on a wire rack. Spread a thin layer of jam on each bottom cookie; sandwich with tops, pressing gently. Dust with sifted confectioners’ sugar.
