Oatella Cookies From Food and Wine

by on June 16, 2014 · 3 comments

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 […]

Fudge Brownies With a Shiny Top

Shiny Top Brownies

I made a batch of brownies this week and got the coveted shiny, crackly, top. Not that there’s anything wrong with dull-topped or frosted brownies, but if pulling out a pan of shiny brownies makes you happy, here’s some interesting info that came with a (different) brownie recipe in the June 2000 issue of Cook’s […]

Totonac's Vanilla

The Buttery Snickerdoodle Recipe from the back of the King Arthur Bread Flour bag has been calling my name ever since I pulled it out to make pizza dough. I love how bread flour improves the texture of certain baked goods. Alton Brown uses it in his famous chocolate chip cookies, Cook’s Illustrated recommends …

Hazelnut Chewies

I’ve been making these cookies for years, but in the past couple of months they’ve become a family favorite. Similar to meringues, but a lot quicker to make since you don’t have to dry them out for a long period in the oven, these chocolaty, nut and egg white cookies can be made with your […]

Giant Oatmeal Cookies

Today’s recipe is from my friend Megan at Megan’s Sweet Life. Megan, who recently moved to Texas, was kind enough to try my marble cake. I was so grateful she took the time to make it that I baked a batch of her family’s favorite oatmeal cookies. Thanks to Megan, I think my family has […]

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 […]

Iced Lemon Sugar Cookies

Iced Lemon Cookies

I made these as an excuse to try a new brand of organic butter.  Normally I would have used the store brand or Land o’ Lakes, but the cash register spit out a free coupon for the organic kind, and since butter is more expensive than ever these days, I was pretty happy to redeem […]
