Favorite Cookie!

Recommended Posts

One of  my favorite memories as a kid, was making a variety of cookies for Thanksgiving and Christmas with my mom.

My mom used to make Czech cookies.   They were delicious.  It has been so long since I had them.  The dough used a yeast cake and was rolled out on powder sugar and baked.   They had some sort of pecan filling.

Other than that, I loved pecan tassies.

The sugar cookies were okay, unfortunately it didn't take long of them to get hard.

Bar cookies are pretty good and easy to make.

Brownies are probably the easiest, and delicious..

Spritz were a little more difficult to make.  The dough had to be just right to be put through a cookie press.

Snowball cookies are also delicious and easy to make.  IMO, they are way overpriced when bought in the store.

The Jacques Torres chocolate chip cookie recipe that was blowing up the web years ago inspired me to make a couple of changes to my standard tollhouse cookies--doubling the vanilla and resting the dough in the fridge for a couple of days. So I just made a batch with brown butter and toasted white sugar. If it's possible to make a cookie too caramel-y, this borders right up on it. It really needs the double salt treatment. And you can't use milk chocolate chips. Semi-sweet might be too sweet.

High quality frosted sugar cookies. They're harder to find than a good chocolate chip cookie, but it makes them taste that much more delicious.

My favorite is chocolate chip. Especially when it's warm and gooy.

I always have a bag of frozen dough balls in the freezer so I can bake them off and small batches so I only eat them when they are warm.

The only cookie I would ever crave.  There are plenty of cookies I'll eat if you hand one to me*, but soft chocolate chip cookies I will devour.  Especially, yes, if it's right from the oven.

*Homemade or from a bakery; other than the occasional Thin Mint, there isn't anything pre-packaged I'd want.  The ginger snaps from Trader Joe's are okay; great ginger flavor, but too crunchy a texture.

Hmm, I don't really like things in things so the texture of most chocolate chip cookies I am not a fan of. I do like almond cookies. And oatmeal (no raisin) a lot!

I figure since it’s been a month since the last post (mine) it’s okay to write a new one. I finally got to Fresh Market (it’s a few Towns over) and for my almond pillow cookies, which are my absolute favorite!! I bought all three boxes they had.
