Do you find your favorite cookies missing a nicotine sting? Smoke & Pickles: Recipes and Stories from a new Southern Kitchen fixes that for you, featuring a sugar cookie dough infused with cigar leaves and topped with a boiled down mixture of coconut, molasses, and tobacco water.
Cookies, Brownies, and Bars
Call them Hello Dollys or Magic Cookies or Seven Layer Bars. Given that these chocolate-pecan-coconut bar cookies take about 5 minutes to throw together and 30 minutes to bake, I think we can all agree to call them our next afternoon snack.
Obsessed as I am with the flavor of olive oil, it makes sense that I'm obsessed with these cookies. They taste like olive oil and pistachios. That's it and that's all they need to be.
These chewy, coconut oatmeal cookies are bursting with chocolate chips—plus they're vegan too!
At parties that signal the end of an era, you tend to celebrate in the style of the thing you're leaving. For example, I found graduation parties from college involved kegs of Keystone Light, not bottles of Cabernet. At my bachelorette party, there will be late night clubbing, not
a bowl of popcorn and Netflix serene marital bliss. Baby showers seem to be the exception: you celebrate the onslaught of cute with cutsie things—like these Polka Dot Shortbread cookies.
These oatmeal cookies are inspired by the Elvis favorite of peanut butter and bananas, but taken to the next level with chocolate chips.
Change up your biscotti routine by adding sweet, crunchy cornmeal to the dough. Cherries and almond extract make them just right for the season.
Feeling lazy and not in the mood to scoop out cookie dough? Press it into the pan like I did with my favorite chocolate cookie.
