Sarabeth's Rugelach

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 4 comments

I decided to give rugelach another go this year, this time with a recipe from Sarabeth Levine's Sarabeth's Bakery. I've had more than my fair share of rugelach from Sarabeth's storefront over the past year and I can honestly say that these were every bit as good as the ones from the bakery. More

Bake the Book: Shortbread Cookies

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

Super light and flaky with just the slightest hint of lemon zest, these are some of the best shortbread cookies I've ever made. Unlike other recipes that can get overly cakey and crumbly to the point of falling apart, these roll out thin and bake up tender. The cookies are finished with a sprinkling of sugar immediately after they come out of the oven. The heat from the cookies adheres the sugar to the tops, giving them a tiny sugar crust. More

Bake the Book: Scribble Cookies 

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

While these Scribble Cookies from My Sweet Mexico aren't necessarily a traditional Mexican sweet, author Fany Gerson's childhood fondness for them guaranteed them a spot in her cookbook. These are the kind of cookies that little kids dream about—sandwiches of shortbread and creamy chocolate filling topped with squiggles of even more chocolate. More

Bake the Book: White Pecan Cookies 

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

While baking these little White Pecan Cookies from Fany Gerson's My Sweet Mexico I thought they were going to be almost identical in texture to the Amaretti I had made a few weeks ago. Sure, there was the almond versus pecan factor, but a nut is a nut, right? As it turned out, these cookies couldn't be more different from their Italian cousins. More

Bake the Book: Coffee-Flavored Corn Cookies 

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

Adapted from Fany Gerson's My Sweet Mexico, these Coffee-Flavored Corn Cookies combine three unusual cookie ingredients, making for a uniquely flavored and very Mexican cookie. Although shortening or lard can be used as the fat element of this recipe, I'm fairly certain that the original recipe called for lard exclusively and could be easily subbed in for a more authentic cookie. The other two ingredients that make up these crunchy coffee-scented cookies are masa harina, a finely ground corn flour, and freshly brewed coffee. More
