Friends and coworkers have been busy harvesting delicious avocados lately, so I decided to try baking avocado chocolate chip cookies using these home-grown treasures. I received an avocado from a coworker that was really soft and ripe and though I’d better use it right away. I remember reading that avocados can be a healthier substitute for butter, […]
Cardamom. It’s my new favorite spice. It has a fresh, almost lemony scent to it, and it has a refreshing taste to match. Brown sugar. It’s my favorite kind of sugar. The molasses flavoring and the chewy texture makes for nice, soft cookies. When I saw this recipe for Cardamom-Brown Sugar Cookies on the Washington […]
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is the Jam Filled Sandwich Cookies recipe. The best way I can describe this cookie is jam sandwiched between two delicate shortbread cookies. This was recipe is straight-forward and does not require a lot of ingredients.
I recently stumbled upon videos by Cupcake Jemma on YouTube, and thought her recipes looked great! In fact, I got the Oreo Pavlova recipe from her. This Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookie recipe looked really good when she made it, I just had to give it a try. Sure enough, her recipe turned out to be a […]
This is the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie. Ever. I have gone through a number of different chocolate chip cookie recipes, and found this one from Savory Sweet Life. This turned into my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. I am actually surprised that I didn’t post this recipe earlier. These cookies have nice crisp edge and a soft, […]
This recipe for Midnight Crackles is one that I found in BAKING From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. This is a chocolate cookie with a kick (thanks to some unexpected spices)! This smells and tastes like it should be a cookie that should be baked for the holidays.
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 […]
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 […]
