Good lord, I love brown butter. The nutty, caramelly flavor takes most recipes to the next level of awesome. And, as we’ve already established, I love malt. So these cookies clearly needed to happen. Continue reading “Salted Malted Brown Butter Cookies”
You’ve heard of things like triple chocolate cookies, I’m sure. But Triple Birthday Cookies?! What on earth are they? Well, they’re ridiculous, that’s what. Continue reading “Triple Birthday Cookies”
I just returned to Greenville after two weeks home in Austin, and some serious baking seemed like the only sensible cure for the raging bout of homesickness that ensued. I miss Austin something fierce. So something chocolate needed to happen.
I have to say, I was completely dubious about this recipe. Not the concept (courtesy of some European travel, I really like sesame seed desserts), but the execution – this calls for 1.5 TABLESPOONS of butter. Continue reading “Benne Wafers (i.e. sesame seed brittle cookies)”
