Davids Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Today’s recipe was given to me by a reader named David who says that without a doubt, these are the best cookie he’s ever eaten. He got the recipe years ago from the Raleigh News and Observer which credits the source as The Guglhupf Bakery in Durham.  David, thanks so much for this recipe!  The […]

Oatella Cookies From Food and Wine

Oatella Cookies

Today’s cookies are from my favorite issue of Food & Wine Magazine, the “Best New Chefs” issue – July 2014. I’m only familiar with Paul Qui, but I enjoyed reading about the others and like to pretend I will someday eat at their restaurants. Until then, there are cookies! These were created by Dagmara Kokonas […]

Double Fudge Brownie Cookies

Double Fudge Brownie Cookies

If you liked the chewy brownie cookies I posted earlier this week, here’s another version. These are somewhat fudgier and definitely thicker. Corn syrup helps with the texture, so they’re fudgy, but not overly rich. I used 3 ounces of chopped Ghirardelli and loved the results, but I might try making them again with 3 […]

White Chip Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Brownie Cookies

If you’re looking for a fairly easy recipe for dense, chewy, double chocolate chip or white chip cookies, this one always gets good reviews. I can’t pinpoint exactly why people like these cookies so much, but I think it’s the texture. The key to the texture is shortening, which has a higher melting point than […]

Double Chocolate Cookies with White Lily

This recipe was a test to see how self-rising flour would work in a double chocolate cookie.  Regular all-purpose flour mixed with baking powder and salt would have been just fine, but I wanted to see if the soft winter wheat used to make White Lily would have any impact on the overall result. The […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies Made With Clarified Butter

My latest cookie obsession has been trying to make homemade cookies similar to Otis Spunkmeyer’s; however, I haven’t come close.  The Otis Spunkmeyer cookies use some kind of margarine, and I haven’t figured out exactly what type of margarine that is since it appears to be trans-fat free and made with just palm oil, water, salt, and […]

Food and Wine Chocolate Brownie Cookies

I have three favorite double chocolate cookie recipes, plus a new one to add to the list. These Chocolate Brownie Cookies were featured in the November issue of Food & Wine, where editor-in-chief, Dana Cowin declared them the most delicious she’s ever had. The magazine describes them as crispy-chewy brownies in cookie form, but mine […]

Sparkling Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate Sparkle Cookies

After trying a recipe for gluten free coconut flour cookies, I decided to revisit another cookie I’ve been making on and off for the past 7 years – a very fudgy, easy, (and pretty) little chocolate cookie covered with sparkling sugar. Based on an a famous recipe from Vancouver’s Thomas Haas Chocolates, I’ve made changes […]
