White Chip & Vodka Cookies

Vodka Cookies

These cookies were a last minute experiment to see what would happen if I put Tito’s Vodka in a batch of white chip cookies. As far as chemistry goes, I’m not sure the vodka really did anything, but it’s always fun to have a secret ingredient, and the cookies were definitely good.   The dough […]

tiny cookies

One thing I noticed while making batches of cookie bark is that baking at a low temperature for a longer amount of time almost always results in an evenly cooked and very crisp product. Recently, I’ve been applying this to some of my miniature cookie recipes. I’ve always loved teeny tiny cookies (especially the ones […]

Salty Chocolate Chunk Cookies

This is the type of day where I most definitely should not have sweet and salty treats in the house, but I couldn’t resist! These Salty Chocolate Chunk Cookie were at the top of the Epicurious popularity box, and given the photo and reviews, I had to bake them.   Plus I was interested in […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yesterday I made our neighbors a batch of cookies as a thank you gift for helping me take care of a lost dog on Thanksgiving. I’d planned on chocolate chip, but wanted to do something a little more special, and made a version with buttery toasted nuts and coconut. Perfect timing! Because later that day […]

giant cookie

I’m still on a giant cookie kick, and since I already posted a 9-inch round pumpkin and double chocolate cookie, here’s a large, perfect-for-decorating, chocolate chip. So far, the key to baking these large, easy-to-slice cookies has been using a low heat (300F) and baking for 30 to 35 minutes. This one bowl recipe gives […]

All-Bran Cereal Box Chocolate Chip Cookies

All-Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is adapted from the back of an All-Bran cereal box. It has a little more flour and a little less butter than the usual Toll House recipe, plus it includes 1/2 cup of softened bran which bulks up the cookies and lowers the calorie count ounce per ounce. Not that these are low […]

Not the Neiman Marcus Cookie

Too bad the deadline for the Nestle Toll House Tales contest has passed, because I finally came up with a cookie and story. I was going to write that this cookie was inspired by a recipe I received years ago from a waitress in the Neiman Marcus tea room — a recipe I unknowingly paid […]
