These are absolutely the chewiest, moistest, fudgiest brownies ever! I have tried adding so many different things to the batter, and they ALWAYS comes out great. They are also great without ANY add-ins! BUT by varying the add-ins, you can make different brownies every week (or day!!) SUPER EASY PREP! So, add "whatever floats your boat" and you will not believe how yummy they come out :) Oh, and the recipe doubles just fine--use a 9 x 13 inch pan instead and add a few more minutes of baking!
I tested 8 different butter cookie recipes, looking for the "perfect" butter cookie. It had to be buttery, a little crumbly (like shortbread), and not too sweet. This is the winner. I think these are the Worlds Best Butter Cookie, courtesy of Chef Alice Medrich.
You will not find a better sugar cookie anywhere you search, this will most likely be the only sugar cookie you will use, not only are these cookies buttery delicious, the dough is an absolute dream to work with, it rolls out easily and is easy to handle, also the cookies hold their shape when baked something many sugar cookies do not do --- make as many different colors as desired in separate bowls with the icing, the cookies must be completely cooled before icing --- plan ahead the dough must be chilled for at least 2 hours before rolling -- since these are topped with icing they are not a sweet cookie if you want a sweeter taste then increase the sugar amount
I know... Not ANOTHER chocolate chip cookie recipe... BUT, you'll find that these are sheer perfection, large bakery-style, thick and chewy, cookies that taste as good as they look with a fool-proof set of instructions. It was pointed out to me that this recipe is from Baking Illustrated, perhaps so as I wrote down the ingredients from a morning show years ago! Thanks for letting me know.
These were brought into my work recently to celebrate a co-worker's birthday. Absolutely incredible! The baker was hunted down and made to hand out the recipe. ;) It came from her Pampered Chef cookbook, and the pan she used was one of their 'bar pans'. I'm sure a 13X.. or 15X.. could be substituted, but the baking time should probably be adjusted.
A co-worker gave me this recipe. You can use any flavor cake mix and icing you choose. My preference is lemon, but I have used a red velvet mix and tinted almond bark with green coloring for christmas. You must refrigerate cake mix in order to roll into balls. I find it is easier to work with half of cake and leave other half in the freezer while dipping. Have fun experimenting with different flavors.
There are so many different versions of this wonderful combination. This is mine and I have used it for close to 20 years. This is DS favorite! The creamy peanut butter refers to a brand such as Jif or Skippy. I don't think a natural peanut butter will work as it is missing the oil Also, the margarine for the chocolate mixture is melted before adding to the chocolate chips. If water gets in the chocolate it well "seize".
These snickerdoodle cookies are so delicious, and they have the best texture. They are so fast to put together too! I actually got it from an old recipe that my Great Grandma had clipped out of a newspaper. Grandma always knows best!
