Hazelnut Macarons

Macarons have become so trendy that you see them in every bakery, specialty food store, and blog post. They are the new cupcake, and with good reason. They are a perfect French cookie, light and rich at the same time with so many flavor choices. My only objection is the price per cookie at all … Continue reading »

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

These crunchy chocolate mint cookies are a riff on Thin Mints, and I suppose if you dipped them in chocolate instead of drizzling, they would be exactly alike. I’ve always been a big fan of Thin Mints, and I will definitely be making these again. They’re a great addition to your holiday cookies, but they’ll … Continue reading »

Chewy Ginger Cookies

These chewy ginger cookies are really gingery from three kinds of ginger, and you can make them crispy if you bake them longer. They are also apparently great with peanut butter slathered between to make a cookie sandwich. It’s not the holidays until we have some spice cookies around the house. Chewy Ginger Cookies 2 … Continue reading »

Faux Milanos

I found this recipe on Serious Eats and I couldn’t wait to try it because I love milanos. I know, they’re probably not that good for you and have tons of things in them that I can’t pronounce, but I love them. And that’s even more reason to try this recipe. It was also the … Continue reading »

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almost everyone loves chocolate chip cookies. And there are almost as many favorite recipes for them. I’ve been baking my way through the Flour Bakery Cookbook, and have made the peanut butter cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, chocolate chip hazelnut cookies, double chocolate cookies, and raspberry blueberry muffins. My apple oat muffins were also based on Flour’s … Continue reading »

Peanut Butter Cookies

So, I went a little nuts with the baking last weekend because I was baking for the New Music Bake Sale in Brooklyn. I made two kinds of cookies and some banana bread, and it was tons of fun. I realized after the fact that I should have made my gougeres since they are probably … Continue reading »

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies are a favorite around the apartment, and I think this may be the winning recipe. I was planning on giving the whole batch to Gareth to take on his trip this week, and I somehow kept to the plan. But I think I’m going to have to make them again soon, because … Continue reading »

2011 was a great year in the kitchen

It was a great first year for my latest project, Meatballs and Milkshakes. I had a chance to make both namesakes for my blog, spaghetti and meatballs and affogato milkshakes. My recipe for shaved asparagus salad won on Food52 and I got all sorts of prizes. (And my recipe will be in print in October 2012!) I … Continue reading »

Spice Cookies

Spice cookies always say the holidays to me, so of course I had to make some this week. As I watch the Nutcracker on TV and smell the cookies baking, I’m feeling particularly festive. For these cookies, I tend to substitute spices with what I have available so feel free to use something different. Spice … Continue reading »

Jam Thumbprint Cookies

  I love cookies that have jam in them, particularly a sugar cookie base like this. You can use whatever jam you have lying around, I used a combination of cassis, apricot-pineapple, and my own apple butter in this batch. It’s nice to have a variety and it doesn’t take any more work, so why … Continue reading »
