I thus devoted my entire Sunday to baking 2 kinds of cookies worthy of my time *wink*. Most of what I cook is without the help of a recipe. I either interpret a dish from my memory of how it tastes, or I create something. I can't risk that with baking! I have absolutely no solid knowledge in making sweets. After asking a couple of foodie friends and much internet research, I picked Saveur magazine's blog cookie pick-Une Gamine dans la Cuisine's mint chocolate chip cookies and Kayotic Kitchen's savory Italian cheese cookies.
The recipes are all hyperlinked to their names above so I won't post them here. I will post my photos and tell you that they are very scrumptious. However, I did make an addition to the savory cookie. I noticed how many people posted on Kayotic Kitchen that their Italian cheese cookies turned out on the dry side, so I added a 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of olive oil (I doubled the quantity from the recipe so maybe 1/4 to 1/2 tsp for the recipe) into the mixer along with the dry ingredients. They turned out really well!
