Chewiest Sugar Cookies - Recipes - food52 - food community, recipe search and cookbook contests
Author Notes: My 8 year old daughter Maddie and I love to make cookies together. We always sample the dough as we go, adding a little more sugar or vanilla (or something else), if needed. Because if the dough doesn't taste good, the cookies certainly won't. If you use very fresh free-range eggs (ours are from a farm down the road), then you don't have to worry about salmonella. If you'd rather not eat raw dough, though, trust that Maddie and I have tasted this one, and we think it's great. We love the chewy sugar cookies made from this dough, too, of course- they remind us of those packaged slice and bake ones, but they're better. Food52 Review: These super-chewy cookies have deep dark sugar flavor and rich vanilla notes. Serves 20-30 cookies This recipe is a Community Pick! Popular on Food52 and Provisions Tags: Easy, kid-friendly, sweet

Chai Pancakes January 19, 2012 | Print | E-mail | Filed under chai As long as I can remember, I’ve always a loved pancakes. Well, maybe except for one summer growing up after a fateful camping trip with my family. The campground we frequented always had a big pancake breakfast on Saturday morning, which was pretty exciting…all you can eat pancakes with butter, syrup, bacon, sausage, and jam. One Saturday morning after my family and I had loaded up our plates with pancakes, we all sat down together to eat breakfast. Unfortunately, we all sat down together to eat breakfast on the same side of a rickety picnic table that had seen better days, and the picnic table toppled over, practically in slow motion…our pancakes flew through the air and landed on top of us, along with everything else that was on the table.

The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life. I guess that’s why they call him Mr. Chocolate! These are a chocolate chip cookie of another color, that’s for sure.

Chocolate Lovers’ Triple-Chocolate Brownie Cookies - Cook Like James Chocolate Lovers’ Triple-Chocolate Brownie Cookies These chewy fudgy chocolate cookies from Cook's Country will satisfy any chocolate lover who craves a brownie in cookie form. I use Callebaut chocolate, but Ghirardelli is also a fine choice. Three types of chocolate combine to deliver a deep dark rich chocolate cookie. The Brownie That Will Change Your Life Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post. OK now with the story that preludes possibly the greatest brownie I have ever sunk my teeth in thus far in my life. Last Saturday Mrs. Zesty had a baby shower to attend and she was designated for a dessert/sweet treat for the girls. Last week was a bit of a zoo and I think I forgot about prepping this dessert until Friday afternoon at work.

Cinnamon Roll Cookies Forget the weights get your bicep curl on in this hand to mouth cookie lift. For a heavier lift, stack a few cookies together. Then have a few more for some extra reps and your arms should be perfectly sculpted. See these cookies not only taste good, but they will make you look good. No lie. Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Strawberry Lemonade Cookies and *Link Party* Summer is quickly coming to an end, and I want to soak up every last bit of it. Some of you may be eagerly awaiting fall and the cooler temps, but I don't want summer to end! I can't think of anything more summery than strawberries and lemonade. Put those two flavors together and you get a crazy good cookie sandwich!! I shared these Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies with you a few weeks ago (SO yummy!).

Soft Lofthouse Style Frosted Cookies Soft Lofthouse Style Frosted Cookies Unbelievably soft sugar cookies with a delicious buttercream frosting and topped with colorful sprinkles. These taste very similar to those infamous Lofthouse Cookies with frosting and sprinkles. You can find them in almost every bakery section of the grocery stores here in the United States. Colorful Spiral Cookies Just try to be in a bad mood around one of these. Impossible! I was naturally drawn to these because of the bright, eye-catching swirl, not to mention the jumbo sprinkles-encrusted edges! If anything, these should be the SB mascot, because they are everything I love.

The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved. Speaking of which, what gives sugar?! Make Your Own Girl Scout Cookies Make Your Own Girl Scout Cookies, Sans The Artificial Ingredients Whether you want to avoid some of the highly-processed ingredients (like trans fats and palm oil) or you just can’t wait for the annual cookie sale, we’ve got some simple ways to make healthier versions of these classic treats. Why Make Your Own Though Girl Scout cookies boxes say “trans-fat free,” the term is officially defined by the FDA as a food that contains less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving, meaning some varieties — including uber-popular Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs — still contain trace amounts of the fat. The giveaway: Look for “partially-hydrogenated” on the ingredient list. That ingredient list also contains palm oil and preservatives — your homemade ones will just taste better.

Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze I’m not exaggerating when I write that I have been thinking about making these cinnamon rolls for five months. After posting my Sweet Potato Pecan Cinnamon Rolls last November, I started brainstorming other varieties and carrot cake immediately came to mind. I waited all of these months to make these cinnamon rolls because for some reason I associate carrot cake with Spring. Is it the bunnies? Easter? Millionaire's Shortbread Since one half of the blue-eyed baking squad is currently blogging from waaaay across the pond in London, we figured we'd bake you lovely duckies a British treat. Shortbread. Millionaire's shortbread (ooooh aaaah). Strawberry Shortcake Cookies. I have a problem. I kind of love strawberries. In a normal day, I will consume: a big cup of Dunkin Donuts strawberry shortcake coffee, wild strawberry-flavored water, a small bowl of fresh strawberries, sometimes frozen, because I'm weird, sometimes with strawberry yogurt, cuz that just seems more healthy, more strawberries snuck throughout the day when no one's looking because I'm convinced I'm starving, & sometimes, if my own wiggling isn't enough, strawberry Jello. So it was only a matter of time really before strawberries found their way into my cookies too. I immediately fell in love with the idea of these and was so, so excited to try them. What could be more perfect than a strawberry shortcake cookie?
