Sorry to interrupt the Ghirardelli Luxe Milk Chocolate Giveaway, but I needed to tell you about Erika from Top Chef’s Chocolate Chunk Cookies – the ones that were so good, a judge requested the recipe. Bravo put Erika’s recipe on their website and it’s written the way a normal person might scratch something down on […]

Today’s recipe was inspired by a fabulous baker named Minnie Mouse. Did you know she has her own bakeshop? She does, and she’s hired some capable help. Minnie’s cookies are produced by Selma’s, and I can’t help but wonder if Selma ever imagined Minnie Mouse would be baking her cookies and selling them all over […]

jumbo MM cookies

A few weeks ago I posted my favorite thin and crispy M&M cookie — the kind with lots of crinkles and folds and very little chewiness. This cookie, adapted from a Land o’ Lakes recipe, is the opposite. It’s a thick, sturdy dough perfect for holding together loads of M&Ms and chocolate. …

Today’s cookies were inspired by Cakespy, who posted the recipe in a timeline called “Look to the Cookie”.  The recipe, as Jessie the Cakespy notes, is from Maida Heatter who said “she didn’t know of a bigger cookie”.  I’ll bet she does now – especially if she’s stopped by Levain or met up with a […]

Not-Compost Cookies

compost-clone

Thanks to my repeated attempts at cloning the world famous compost cookie, this weekend has been one long stomachache. This is as close I got before realizing that a) mine will never be as good as Milk Bar’s so why bother and b) it’s not really a compost cookie if you’re making all the components […]
