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.

Crumbl is going to be the damn death of me! My first born son was the damn gateway a month ago to this new obsession. I am so flipping glad that I have to travel 70 miles down state to the beach or 70 miles over to the middle of the state in order to get one of their cookies or I would be there everyday pressed against the window waiting for them to open. $27 for a dozen.  I don't eat the dozen but I seriously freak out when anyone opens the box to get one out. I am not even a big sweet eater, I have some favorite things but...these damn cookies are going to be the death of me.

Damn peanut butter and jelly. I don't know how long I have to wait for it to be an option again.

I didn't get to try the waffle with buttercream and syrup last week.

Churro is this week. I have to go to the beach town Wednesday and I am going to get one of those. And maybe the german chocolate cake one. And the damn cornbread berry crunch one. Chilled sugar is a must. 

In my defense, I can make a cookie last a week, they are big and rich. I cut them like a pie into seven pieces and once a day take a slice of one flavor. 

Damn, it is only Sunday. sigh.

If you put your hand around the cookie in the images below, they are even bigger than that.

Thumbs up for the road trip! If you like almond flavoring in cakes, then the chilled sugar cookie is great. My son got a dozen when he was up around the middle of the state for work, came home, gathered up the wife and daughters and headed to Mt. Airy for the weekend with the cookies. I took half of one of the pbj frosted peanut butter ones and it was so good. It was piped with a fluffy swirl of peanut butter icing (that reminded me of the icing that an old lady at church used to put on her perfect brownies that were baked and served in a sheet pan. She gave me the recipe!) and surprisingly a raspberry type seedless jelly.  He didn't really like his half so when they got back he gave the other whole one to me. He also gave me a chocolate s'mores one. I do not like s'mores, at all. I like all the ingredients, just not as a s'mores. This cookie was also fantastic which surprised me. 

PBJ good

S'mores good

Chilled Sugar/pink almond icing good

Lemon eh, disappointed. It was the chilled sugar cookie with a lemon glaze and sliced lemon on top. I thought it was going to be lemon cookie and a real lemon slice that was candied on top. It wasn't as tartly lemony as I expected and the lemon slice...was a lemon slice, which is terrible on a cookie. They need to rethink this one.

Mom's chocolate chip recipe eh I like Chick Fil-A's much better! 

Tomorrow I am going to get the ones I mentioned in my previous post and will report back to this slow moving thread, haha

Reporting back that the churro cookie and the cornmeal cookie were delicious. The German chocolate was fine, it was the chocolate cookie that made it good. I preferred the s'more's flavors on the chocolate cookie from a few weeks ago. I missed last weeks options and will probably miss this weeks options. The only one from this week I want to try is the Peanut Butter Brownie and the fruit pizza options. 

Checking to see if I can justify a  Costco run before Sunday to get two cookies...

Okay this is not even funny anymore. I will be at Crumbl tomorrow for the banana pudding cookie, the peanut butter cookie and the red velvet cookie. 

I will then ponder over how I turned into a cookie monster with a buck fifty hotdog pepsi combo from Costco on the two hour drive home.

I wish I could make that trip with you!
