Pissalidière, a flaky pizza-like tart, is traditionally topped with onions, anchovies and, at times, tomatoes. Here, we've swapped out the anchovies for artichokes to make these bites even more crowd-pleasing, and we've added spinach for a stunning pop of colour.
In skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 20 minutes. Stir in vinegar, salt and pepper.
On parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet, unroll 1 sheet of the pastry. Top with half each of the onion mixture, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. On separate baking sheet, repeat with remaining pastry, onion mixture, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Bake, 1 sheet at time, in 425°F oven until edges are golden, 18 to 20 minutes. Cut each sheet into 16 squares.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: If the onion begins to stick to the skillet, add up to a tablespoon of water, a little at a time.
These citrus-packed chewy treats make the perfect holiday dessert. Use wet hands when shaping your macaroons to avoid a mess.

In bowl, whisk coconut with 1 tsp of the clementine zest. Set aside.
In food processor, pulse clementines until finely chopped.
In small saucepan, bring clementines and 1/4 cup of the sugar to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture reaches jam-like consistency and is reduced by half, about 7 minutes. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.
In large bowl, beat together egg whites, remaining sugar and cornstarch until foamy. Stir in coconut mixture and clementine mixture. Let stand until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
Roll by 1 tbsp into balls. Arrange, 1 inch apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 300°F oven until bottoms are light golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely on pans.
Drizzle with white chocolate; sprinkle with remaining clementine zest. Refrigerate until white chocolate is set, about 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
Canadian maple whisky, fresh ginger and a touch of raspberry liqueur make for a well-balanced libation that's sure to be a hit among fans of both sweet and savoury drinks. If you have any whisky left over, it's delicious on its own over ice.

In food processor, purée dates into smooth paste. Add coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut sugar, egg and vanilla; purée until smooth. Scrape into large bowl.
In separate bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; stir into date mixture until combined. Stir in cranberries.
Roll by 2 tbsp into balls. Arrange, 3 inches (8 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets; flatten to ó-inch (1 cm) thickness.
Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, switching and rotating pans halfway through, until firm and no longer shiny, 13 to 15 minutes. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.)
Tip from The Test Kitchen: Use soft dates for the paste, as they will purée more easily and add the most moisture to the dough.
