Matcha Tea Cookies

I came across Food and Wine’s photo of their Matcha Tea Cake Cookies while browsing the web, and had an immediate craving for them. A cursory glance at the ingredients told me that I didn’t even need to step out of the house for new ingredients – stumbling across this was definitely fate!

Reading the recipe the first time, I missed the “cake” part of their title “Matcha Tea Cake Cookies”, and was therefore wrongly expecting the cookie’s texture to be more like a buttery shortbread cookie. Imagine my surprise when these cookies turned out to have a texture more similar to mini scones! This recipe is very well balanced already, so I barely made any modifications to the F&W recipe, save for cutting down the sugar and upping the bake time.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I recently came across this article by Serious Eats: The Science of the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies (great article by the way!). With such an ambitious title, I couldn’t help but try their “Best Chocolate Chip Cookies” recipe. I’ve never made chocolate chip cookies from scratch before, but figured this would be fun to try out. The verdict? Definitely one of the best cookies I’ve had, and definitely on my make-again list. This recipe calls for you to age the dough, so be sure to make the dough a day before you want to eat it!
