September 13, 2016 | By matt | 0 Comments

above image from Better Baking by Genevieve Ko I am desperately trying to “Marie Kondo” my life right now, because I don’t really have a choice. My apartment is tiny by national standards and average by New York City standards and I am running out of room. Precious square feet are being eaten alive by big, […]

The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookie (and it is Whole Wheat)

March 3, 2016 | By matt | 0 Comments

Kim Boyce’s Chocolate Chip Cookie is a workhorse. (And her book is amazing). It has been around awhile and it is simple and no fuss. No, you do not have to let it age in the refrigerator for 3 days to develop flavor as the flavor is provided by the inclusion of 3 cups of whole wheat flour […]

Twelve Days of Holiday Cookies: Icelandic Kleinur

The Nordic countries share many food traditions, none more delicious than klejner, a deep-fried pastry that dates back to the middle ages and is a common Christmas treat across Scandinavia and Northern Germany. Some differences persist. Danish klejner are typically unleavened. The same is true for Swedish klenäter. In Denmark, we also have Norwegian klejner, which are […]

Spring Baking Book Bonanza

March 3, 2015 | By matt | 0 Comments

This fall was an embarrassment of baking riches. So many big, beautiful and amazing baking books were published and I couldn’t help myself. I had to have them ALL!

We are closing out our 12 Days of Cookies celebration with a classic from Molly. Say hello to the old school Peanut Butter cookie (with a nice shout out to mom and dad).

The ante has been upped. Things are getting serious. Wendi went and remade the classic snickerdoodle for Day Ten of our 12 Days of Cookies. Behold, the Chocolate Snickerdoodle. For Wendi, Christmas is all about the sparkle and shimmer. And chocolate. Lot’s of chocolate. And, let’s be honest, it doesn’t get more sparkly or shimmery […]

It’s Day Nine of our 12 Days of Cookies and Wendi made one my favorite Christmas Cookie, the Cocoa Crinkle. For Wendi, the Cocoa Crinkle is the embodiment of the Christmas season.
