We woke up Sunday morning and on went the oven. By noon, the kitchen was an assembly line of cookie production in various phases; dough to decorating. Last week's Snowman Sugar Cookies were back in production. This week's Buttery Jam Cookies were just getting the minced candied ginger added to boost the flavor. Sheet pans and and flour were all over the counter.
Don't get me wrong, I liked these a lot. The apricot flavor, not too sweet. I just think they're more biscuit than cookie. Split, and a scoop of ice cream would be heaven.
And now the big question... What is a cookie? Dorie, Sara Dickerman and David Lebovitz analyze the state of the cookie. It's hand held, portable, sweet and more. Although, I'm not so sure about a profiterole! What to do with all that chocolate sauce?? For more discourse on the topic, check out Slate.
