My Girls' Best Test Kitchen Sugar Cookies

April  9, 2010

This week, A&M are joined by special guest Karen DeMasco -- acclaimed Pastry Chef at Locanda Verde in New York City, author of The Craft of Baking and James Beard Award winner. With baking cred like that, you can see why A&M have a million questions for her on how to make the chewiest of sugar cookies. Ever gracious and humble (and a downright cookie genius), Chef DeMasco does not disappoint. Watch them make My Girls' Best Test Kitchen Sugar Cookies by thirschfeld -- one of the Finalists in our quest to prove to Cook's Illustrated that you don't need a fancy test kitchen to make a winning sugar cookie.

These look great - AND thank you for the "what shortening does" tip - I did not know that!

She doesn't look that convinced by the cookies, though...

I love her book. Can't wait to go back to Locanda Verde whenever I make it back to NYC.
