Bake the Book: Twisted Toll House Cookies

Sweets Caroline Russock Post a comment

Adapted from her Portland based dessert truck and namesake cookbook, The Sugar Cube, these cookies gain a wonderfully nutty richness due to the high oil content of the hazelnuts. The cookies bake up thin, crisp, and totally awesome, especially when finished with a pinch of crunchy fleur de sel. More

But hip hop and high tea aside, these Scone Thugs are pretty awesome: delicate, buttery, and packed with loads of bright lemon zest. Cake flour and plenty of butter give them a wonderfully tender crumb. And while they're gorgeous on their own, we certainly wouldn't balk at Jensen's suggestion for topping them with lemon curd or rhubarb jam. More

Bake the Book: 'The Sugar Cube'

Sweets Caroline Russock Closed

The Sugar Cube, Portland's self proclaimed badass dessert cart, is the brainchild of Kir Jensen, a pastry chef with an eye for the unconventional. Jensen's pink truck puts out some of the most thrilling desserts in the city, delicious and creative as well as being, well, let's call them creatively titled. Badonkadonk Shortcake, anyone? Or how about a Chocolate Bananagasm Muffin? More
