Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Compared to fresh fruits and dried fruits, freeze dried fruits are not really all that flavorful. But they do have some advantages over their juicier counterparts. For instance, they can be stored pretty much indefinitely without spoiling. They can also be worked into recipes where other types of fruit just won’t work out. This property turns out to be a great advantage when you like ... Read More »

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Mrs Beasley's Chocolate Truffle Cookies

A few weeks ago, a friend shared a batch of Mrs Beasley’s Chocolate Truffle Cookies with me, saying that they were some of the best chocolate cookies she’d tasted in a long time. The cookies were excellent, although a bit messy to eat because of their heavy powdered sugar coating. They were very moist and almost melted in your mouth, and hand an intensely chocolate ...

Honeyed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Honeyed Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve mentioned before that honey is an interesting ingredient to use in baking because it has some unusual properties. Namely, in addition to sweetening up a recipe, it actually attracts and retains moisture. This means that baked goods that use honey will remain nice and moist, where similar baked goods without any honey may get a bit dry or stale. I find that chewy cookies, ... Read More »

Dark Double Chocolate Cookies

I often hear people saying that they want to reduce the sugar in a recipe, or they don’t want something to be “too sweet.” I’ve had cookies that are made with too much sugar and they taste grainy and unpleasant, but I don’t generally want to reduce the sugar in any other recipes. Sugar is a huge contributor to the texture of baked goods, helping ... Read More »

Giant Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies - can't have too much milk

Those gigantic bakery-style chocolate chip cookies that are larger than your hand are always impressive. They promise the same buttery, sugary, chocolaty goodness of a small cookie, but in triplicate. Unfortunately, many of these cookies aren’t as good as the look, as the bakers/bakeries responsible figure that the fact that they can pack more chocolate chips into the cookie makes up for the fact that ...

Car-Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies, step by step

Last week, I drew up some guidelines to follow if you wanted to try baking cookies in your car. This past weekend, since the temperatures were well over 100F out here, I decided to give the technique a try myself. I parked my car in full sunlight in the middle of the day, sliced up some cookie dough and started to bake. I previously noted ... Read More »

Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  Traveling gives you the chance to try all kinds of new foods and local favorites. Having friends who travel can give you some of the same opportunities, provided they’re kind enough to pick up some of those local favorites and bring them back to you. Some of my friends brought back a box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts from a recent trip to Hawaii ... Read More »

Low Fat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

fresh from the oven

  Cookies are not exactly health food, especially not if they’re really good cookies, as it is the combination of butter and sugar (and sometimes chocolate) that usually makes a cookie great. Cookies are supposed to be indulgent and, like most indulgent things, the low fat, low cal or otherwise “healthy” versions tend not to live up to the original. But this isn’t true of ... Read More »
