When developing this recipe I wanted two things: intense flavor and the perfect crispy outer edge. Betty Ford’s Thanksgiving chocolate cookies are a ’70s masterpiece. Of all the first ladies, Betty Ford was the coolest.

Betty Ford’s Thanksgiving chocolate cookies are a ’70s masterpiece

Michelle Obama was hip, to be sure, and Jacqueline Kennedy was elegant. But Betty Ford spoke her mind, stood up for women’s rights, and was open about her fight with breast cancer. After her husband, Gerald R. Ford, left office, Mrs. Ford sought treatment for alcoholism and an addiction to painkillers, and famously founded the Betty Ford Center. Though President Ford only had a short stint in office from 1974 to 1976, and the Fords spent at least one Thanksgiving at their vacation home in Vail, Colorado, rather than at the White House, they still left their mark on Thanksgiving culinary traditions. Being from Michigan, I wanted to track down one of Betty Ford’s Thanksgiving recipes—preferably the cookie recipe—so I emailed her daughter Susan Ford Bales and asked if she would share some.

One recipe was for scalloped potatoes; the other was for the coveted Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. How to make a killer brown-butter bacon chocolate chip cookie. We’re not usually prone to hyperbole, but pastry chef Dana Cree made one of the best chocolate chip cookies we’ve ever tasted.

How to make a killer brown-butter bacon chocolate chip cookie

Cree, the James Beard Award-nominated chef of Chicago’s The Publican, came up with a cookie using brown butter and crispy bacon bits. Whereas other recipes have you incorporating cold butter into the mixture, the fats used in Cree’s cookie are liquid—melted, but not hot. The flour gets hydrated differently than usual, which creates a cookie that’s crisp around the edges and teeth-sinking soft and gooey as you bite into the center.

It’s also one of the easier cookies you’ll make. (Note: This will taste just as great without the bacon.) If at all possible, use the metric measurements (grams). Beer & Pretzel Caramel Cookie Bars can hardly fit all their virtues in one pan. While sheltering in place, I have dealt with my feelings via pie, cake, doughnuts, babka, and banana cream pie eclairs, because I am a well-adjusted adult with a rather loosey-goosey interpretation of the “self care” concept.

Beer & Pretzel Caramel Cookie Bars can hardly fit all their virtues in one pan

My next step was to comfort myself with cookies, but because it was one ding-dang-diddly doozy of a week, these “bar cookies” are actually one gigantic candy bar. If I had just stopped at shortbread, caramel, and chocolate, it would have been a Twix. But since I added beer and pretzels it is not a Twix, and since I cut it into large squares it’s a cookie. You tell yourself whatever you need to tell yourself so you can wiggle these into your self care routine.

Announcing the winner of The Takeout’s Holiday Cookie Contest

I’ve judged a number of baking competitions in my time and have tasted a lot (and I mean a lot) of subpar treats, so I anticipated that we’d receive a number of dubious entries, easily whittle the list down to a handful of semifinalists, bake and eat a few hundred cookies, and a clear winner would emerge all on its own. There would be no emotional turmoil, no sleepless nights filled with second thoughts or cookie guilt.

Sweetened condensed milk is important to the flavor of the filling, but it also makes the filling vulnerable to breaking because the whey proteins, crucial to keeping the mixture emulsified, have been damaged by heat both during processing and during the cooking of the filling.

We added fresh cream to supply just enough whey to keep it together. Melting the chocolate very carefully so that it never got too hot and stirring in grated chocolate at the end created a smooth, firm top layer, which made a suitably elegant finish for this rich yet refined cookie. 1. 2. 3. 4.
