Snickerdoodles | Cookie Recipes Snickerdoodles are such a classic cookie, yet up until this point they have honestly been the bane of my existence. I can master croissants, danish, eclairs, and all sorts of complicated bread recipes, but hand me a snickerdoodle recipe and they will undoubtedly spread into a massive, flat, crunchy 14×16-inch cookie. I am not sure where the problem lies, but for some reason this one cookie has given me nothing but headaches. I’m glad that you all like them so much and that they ended up in the top 10 cookies mentioned during the cookbook giveaway, because it gave me an excuse to tackle them yet again with a new recipe. I am happy to report that I have finally experienced successful snickerdoodles! I don’t remember how I stumbled upon this recipe for soft snickerdoodle cookies, but I had it saved for quite some time and was very excited to finally give it a try.
best cocoa brownies People who really, really love chocolate are dubious about cocoa. Even if you buy the most resplendent cocoa in the world, baking things with it that taste as rich as treats with bars of 70% is a rarity. Thus, if you’d told me about a killer recipe for cocoa brownies a couple weeks ago, I wouldn’t have believed you, but since then, two things have happened. The first is that I had one. It was a tiny square, scattered among little tears of homemade marshmallows, near a puddle of homemade hot fudge sauce and carousel-ed around a cocoa nib buckwheat panna cotta at 10 Downing last week that nothing short of blew my mind because did you know that the opposite of sweet in the world of chocolate needn’t necessarily be bitter? The second is that I looked up a well-regarded cocoa brownie recipe and the description did me in. The result is something that could convert those that believe the all roads to fudgy, dark and rich brownies must be paved bricks of tempered chocolate.
