Any time I pass through New York, I make a point to grab a black and white cookie. Sometimes, this means grabbing one at the airport instead of a bakery or deli, but I just can’t resist them.

Cappuccino Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Cookies

Cappuccino Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

A cappuccino is made with roughly half coffee and half milk, so it doesn’t have as strong of coffee flavor as, say, a mug of black coffee. These Cappuccino Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Cookies have a hint of coffee that reminds me of a cappuccino.

This could be attributed to the fact that the photography in the books, whether The French Laundry Cookbook, Bouchon or Ad Hoc at Home, is stunning, but it can also be attributed to the fact that the recipes tend to be very detailed and often time consuming. This is ... Read More »

Honey Peanut Butter Cookies

PB & Honey cookies spread with peanut butter
