I don’t mean to brag, but I had an awesome weekend. Besides the totally fun Bust Craftacular on Sunday, Joanne Chang was in town promoting her cookbook, Flour, and you probably already know what a huge fan I am of the book. So I stopped by the incredible The Brooklyn Kitchen to see her do a baking demo and say hi. (If I had a shop like this in my neighborhood, I’d be a happy guy.) Then I was reading about about the yummy-looking coconut sugar cookies over on Gluten-Free Girl (I think she’s doing non-stop giveaways for her cookbook, by the way), which reminded me about these cookies (not gluten-free) I made from Sally Sampson’s Recipe of the Week Cookies. I think they were called German Chocolate Chunk. I’m calling them “marriage proposal cookies” because that was the reaction I got to these babies. Seriously, my co-workers pretty much lost their minds. I’ve made a lot of cookies over the years but never anything that got quite the reaction these did. So I don’t know if the whole marriage proposal thing works both ways, but if a certain someone is taking a little too long to pop the question, you might want to find the recipe and make a batch of these to get the ball rolling.
