A passion for food + fashion

Cookie Monsters

Several of the “girls” on our block decided to do a holiday cookie exchange last night. There were wedding cookies, sugar cookies, rice krispie treats and more—all of them delicious and baked with love. And there were flutes of bubbly, which were enjoyed with much love indeed! I don’t think any of my neighbors would begrudge me—or disagree—for saying that Debra’s cookies completely stole the show. Debra kindly shared links for recipes she used, which I’m sharing with you. The above Rosemary Pine Nut cookie is from a recipe by Nancy Silverton Dahlia Narvaez of Mozza. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a cookie so perfect. And the below Chocolate Sea Salt (which will blow your mind) is from a Pierre Herme recipe. And look at how perfectly ROUND Debra’s cookies are. That’s a talent in itself.

And what did The Foodinista bake? I cheated. And you would, too, if your sister baked as well as mine. Claire made these heavenly Triple Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal cookies, which I took to the party, but in a moment of conscience gave credit where credit was due.

Good to the last bite…
