TWD: Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Shortbreads aren’t the kind of cookies I usually crave. I guess they have their place at the side of a coffee cup, but given the choice, I’ll always opt for good old chocolate chip cookies. So as I was dutifully making these cookies, I was already scheming about who I could gift them to–what unsuspecting…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Carrot Cake Cookies

Huzzah! After a week of frantic unpacking leisurely opening a box or two at a time, the new kitchen is finally in workable condition. The best part is, it has a big window and enough room for a wee table on which to take photographs, so there’ll be no more carrying food from the kitchen…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chockablock Cookies

I was so glad that Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet picked Chocolablock Cookies for this week’s TWD recipe, because after weeks of dueling with bundt pans and tart shells, I was ready for some good old-fashioned cookie love. But it turns out these chockablock cookies are not your grandma’s cookies. These could also be…

Coconut Macaroons

Today’s recipe is another one appropriate for Coconut Month– “Coconut Month?” you ask. “What is Coconut Month, and how can it be coconut month if the last two posts have had nothing to do with coco–” Shh, shh! Don’t worry your pretty little head about that. And don’t interrupt. It’s rude. AS I WAS SAYING,…

TWD: Dulce de Leche Duos

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Dulce de Leche Duos, arrived with high expectations. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I live with a devoted dulce de leche lovah. When the husband heard that the dulce de leche cookies were on the agenda, he looked a little something like this: Unfortunately, the finished product…

TWD: Thumbprint Cookies for Us Big Guys

Sorry, big guys, but you can keep your thumbprint cookies. I had high hopes for these. Because it is still coconut month, I substituted some ground toasted coconut for part of the hazelnuts, and the raw dough had a wonderful flavor–buttery, nutty, slightly sweet from the coconut but with a good hit of salt. I…

Adventurous Female Seeks Robust, Peanutty Cookie for Longterm Relationship

The other day I was making something with peanut butter–I think it was this wonderful West African Chicken Peanut Stew, which might sound iffy but I promise is really wonderful–and my husband, who was lurking around the kitchen stealing bites of everything, started making big puppy dog eyes at the peanut butter. He proceeded to…

TWD: Honey Wheat Cookies

I had my doubts about these Honey Wheat cookies. The truth is, I OD’ed on wheat germ back in high school, and it’s been years since I’ve even wanted to be in the same room with the stuff. (Lunch every day involved yogurt with gobs of wheat germ stirred into it. Four years of this…
