The popular Kaimuki eatery will be serving fresh-baked cookies and milk ($10) as a dessert from Dec. 20 to 25. It takes 10 minutes to bake, so order early. Clockwise from top left, you get an eggnog cookie, chocolate peppermint, cranberry, chocolate chip bacon (made famous on TV), and a gingerbread crackle/cake cookie. (Lactose intolerant diners can opt for almond milk.)

Other holiday treats available now: Homemade eggnog spiked with rum ($10), a light and airy drink that packs a punch; and mulled red wine (also $10), with spices and a hint of orange.
