Cookie repertoire

I have finally decided to acquire cookie making skills - I have a cookie gap! I am making brown sugar oatmeal cookies right now. I have a few saved in my collection but would like more. What are your favorite Food52 cookie recipes? GO!

Considering how good your cooking skills are cookies should be a well, a cake walk for you. I have a cookie swap coming up and thinking of making this one: https://food52.com/recipes...

I know you said Food52 cookies, but Alexandra is a huge contributor here. I also believe I saw Dorie, the originator of the recipe, make an appearance here on Thanksgiving, so being the rule breaker that I am...

I keep a log of these in my freezer. I slice one off and bake it to enjoy with an afternoon cup of tea. It makes me feel fancy. The sparkle sugar adds a lot of wonderful to it. A photo of this afternoon delight is my avatar.

Correction...it wasn't Doris Greenspan who made an appearance on Thanksgiving, it was Rose Levy Beranbaum.

Since you ask- I'll nominate the Thin Mint Cookie recipe, which has some somewhat unusual features and makes an excellent cookie (if you use excellent chocolate, anyway).

I did a search and pulled up a bunch of random recipes..including pho and steamed muscles. I do see 3 cookie recipes. Which one have you made?

If you do a recipe search under "Thin Mint Cookie" you get 4 recipes, but only one is actually a cookie- a take off on the Girl Scout version.

Actually, I saw 3 or 4 real cookies, but you commented on this one, so I'm guessing it's the one. Filling my cookie jar with them.

Hm- my computer seems to be taking me to a different place than yours- it's fairly new, and I suspect it of either congenital befuddlement, malignant design, or both. At any rate, that's the recipe.

I made these yesterday, subbed Costco whisky because i drank all the good bourbon and used Lane biscuits instead of the nilla wafers because that's what i had in the house. they are awesome and no-bake and should be renamed Amazeballs. https://food52.com/recipes...

The World Peace Cookies are super easy and delicious, so make those, too.

I liked this one a lot: https://food52.com/recipes...

I definitely second the Chubby Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies by Mslarkin. And third and fourth. Two minor alterations that I make. I refrigerate the cookie dough over night. No scientific proof (maybe it has to do with the solidification of the butter fats) but I swear it makes it better. Also, I drop the heat way down to 325 and in top and bottom third of oven cook for 7 minutes, rotate front to back, top to bottom and cook for 6 minutes more. Cool for 3 minutes on the pan then remove to rack. They stay oh-so-chewy. Have fun!

Another way to think about mastering cookies....think about what you and your family like most and concentrate first on those.
Or, if in a more exploratory mode, do a relatively quick world survey and make some cookies from each continent (Antarctica takes a pass).
Or do another survey by technique, type or flavor: e.g., shortbreads, bar cookies, decorated sugar cookies, chocolate cookies, spongecake cookies (madeleine), sandwich cookie, macaroons, filled European pastry cookies.
Either way, after the first survey (baking and tasting along the way), do some concentrated work on one type or flavor. Then, when you're satisfied (or bored) with that type, move on.

This is one of my all time favorites https://food52.com/recipes... . I think you will love it. It's a bit sweet and a bit savory. I made it based on Dorie Greenspan's apricot and tarragon cookies (http://www.foodandwine...), which are another all time favorite. The great thing with these is that you can use any combo of dry fruits and herbs (another all time favorite is pineapple oregano, cranberry and rosemary is also cool). I often make several flavors for the party and serve them with cheese.
