To be honest, this was supposed to be a Brown Butter, Toffee & Chocolate Chip cookie post, but I failed at making brown butter. I browned my butter, but not enough. How do I know this? After I browned my butter, I Googled what it’s supposed to look like, and it looked like I didn’t […]
Viennese Sablés remind me of fancy butter cookies. It’s impossible to be satisfied eating only one of these cookies; who can resist a crispy, buttery, mildly sweet cookie? This recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking Chez Moi, where she explains some of the different reasons why these cookies are “W”-shaped. In short, it could be either because […]
I made these Cocoa Almond Meringues after seeing a picture of the ones in Dorie’s book, Baking From My Home to Yours. Her pictures featured these crinkled meringues that I could just taste in my mind, if that makes any sense. I had all of the ingredients anyway, so I figured I should make some […]
Happy Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year! I decided to make one of my favorite cookies: Rice Krispies Cookies. They’re crispy, flakey, buttery and very addictive! The first time I had cookies like this was from a small delicatessen in Hawaii. I think their recipe is locked up in a safe somewhere, but this […]
I made Edouard’s Chocolate Chip Cookies again. I think these are pretty good. They’re crispy on the outside and a little soft in the middle. The almond flour adds a nice nutty flavor, too. I’m thinking these might taste good sprinkled with a little bit of salt on top, too. Maybe I’ll try that next […]

I was hoping my cookies would […]
Before I purchased Baking Chez Moi, I had never heard of Rugelach. To be honest, I’m still not 100% sure if I’m pronouncing it right (is the “ch” silent?). What I do know is that The Rugelach That Won Over France is currently the recipe of the week on Tuesdays with Dorie! I compared this recipe […]
This is a chocolate chip cookie that pretty much has everything you could possibly put into a chocolate chip cookie. Different types of sugar, different types of chocolate chips, oats, some nuts, and something extra to kick things up a notch, too.
I saw the recipe for these World Peace Cookies all over the internet and had to try them for myself. This recipe is the work of Pierre Herme and Dorie Greenspan. They know how to make a serious cookie! Dorie wrote in her book, Baking From My Home To Yours, “When I included these in Paris […]
It has been a month since I learned how to make macarons with an Italian meringue. A small group of us went to Paris and we all learned how to make macarons from La Cuisine Paris. Our instructor was incredible and I can’t wait to go back to learn more!
