Dear SOS: Can you please get the bread pudding recipe from La Boulange ? By far, it's the best bread pudding I've ever tasted. It is so good! Thank you very much! Michelle Quach San Francisco Dear Michelle: A wonderfully different take on the classic, La Boulange sandwiches a rich, not-too-sweet croissant bread pudding between two crumbly short dough crusts. Dust the puddings with powdered sugar, and serve with whipped cream, chocolate sauce or a selection of fresh fruit.

Bonnie Zanardi of Whittier was one of the 10 winners of our first Los Angeles Times Holiday Cookie Bake-Off with these wedding cookies: "Years ago, I saw the recipe printed on a bag of C&H sugar. It was so simple I almost ignored it. Sure glad I didn't. It is the most requested cookie I bake. The only alteration I've made is the type of nuts used.... Macadamia nuts take this recipe over the top. " These festive cookies are one of the favorite holiday cookie recipes we've collected in our updated "Los Angeles Times Holiday Cookies" e-book.
