For all the dads out there who love cookies (which has to be pretty much all dads) and especially for my dad, who loves all cookies indiscriminately, I present to you the ultimate in edible gifts: 10 genius cookies—from a salty-sweet genre-defying shortbread to the butteriest chewy-crisp macaroons, and not one but two kinds of chocolate chip. Happy Father's Day to all, from me and the geniuses.
Got a genius recipe to share—from a classic cookbook, an online source, or anywhere, really? Perhaps a genius dessert? Please send it my way (and tell me what's so smart about it) at [email protected].
