TWD: Rugelach

This week’s TWD recipe was, without a doubt, the most legit rugelach I’ve ever made. It included not one, but two different cinnamon-sugar mixtures, and about fifty different kinds of dried fruit and nuts. It required something called prune lekvar, for crying out loud. It took way too many chilling periods for someone like me,…

Kettle Corn Cookies

It all started innocently enough. I was browsing my local Trader Joe’s and saw this strange specimen staring at me from the shelves:  (Pay no mind to the lousy Instagram photo) Little known fact: I have become a wee bit obsessed with kettle corn in the last few months. Widely known fact: I am more…

Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I’m a freezer nibbler. This doesn’t mean I go around compulsively gnawing on the corners of refrigerators and freezers (although what I do on my own time is my own business, thankyouverymuch). Rather, I’m one of those people who stash extra baked goods in the freezer and eat them later. I do this for a…

You guys, I am in the midst of writing a cookbook and it is eating my brain and consuming my life. Anytime I want to use my computer I have to go all Indiana Jones and excavate my desk from the mounds of chocolate-smudged files covering it. I haven’t seen my friends in weeks but…

TWD: Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies Go Whoopie

Before we get into any fights and things get awkward around here, let me preface this by saying: there is nothing wrong with a cake cookie per se. Sometimes you might be craving a fluffy, soft dessert, and instead of hassling with cupcake pans and liners, you go with a cakey cookie instead. I get…

TWD: Chocolate Biscotti

I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and first moved down to southern California to go to college. I was adamant that northern California (or “NorCal,” for the obnoxious) was the superior side of the state, and I would never devolve into a southern California beach bum who wore cutoffs everywhere, read Us…

Double Coconut Macaroons and Chia Gel

If I were to ask you what coconut macaroons and chia gel had in common, you might think it was a trick question. (You might actually think I was making up the concept of “chia gel” entirely, but I assure you–it’s a thing. And only tangentially related to the chia pet.) Yes, they’re both two-word…

Oh Yes I Did: Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

Two words: sugar cookies. Two more words: cinnamon rolls. One question: can they be combined? Oh, yeahhhhh.
