'chocolate cookies' on Serious Eats

American Classics: Snappy Turtle Cookies

There's something delightfully macabre about eating foods shaped like adorable animals. Childhood is full of opportunities to bite the ears off of chocolate bunnies and take down an entire school of Goldfish in a single, satisfying crunch. Not surprisingly, Beatrice Harlib's 1952 Pillsbury Bakeoff Grand Prize-winning recipe for Snappy Turtle Cookies, pecan tortoises with buttery cookie bodies and chocolate frosted shells, was inspired by her own young son.

Cookie Monster: Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

There are certain things that I struggle to comprehend. It's not that I doubt that they're true, but I just can't wrap my mind around their existence. For instance: We're on a planet. That is spinning. In space. This totally blows my mind. Why can't we feel the Earth's rotation? Why don't we fall off? What happens at the edge of the universe?* More

BraveTart: Holiday Fauxreos

The mere sight of an Oreo stirs up feelings in me disturbingly like love. Not, of course, a torrid, star crossed love. Or even a simple storybook love. No, Oreos give you the kind of love only found in a long term relationship. They're familiar, comforting and pretty good in bed. (Oh, like you never eat cookies in bed?) More

Cookie Monster: Midnight Cookies

I keep waiting for this whole cupcake trend to end. But just as I think, "It will, it must!", another bright and cheery cupcake shop opens on my corner. To be honest, the whole cupcake craze has always confused me, not in the least because if there is any baked good that could easily be marketed as petite, chic, and an acceptable part of the modern diet, it's the cookie. Maybe, I thought as I gave the newest cupcake shop the stink eye, maybe we just need a grown-up cookie. An ambassador to start the Cookies: They're Not Just For Kids campaign. So I ran home and pulled out three ingredients that I use for my more sophisticated desserts: unsweetened European cocoa powder, ground espresso, and walnuts. More

Fauxreos

Oreos built a reputation by touting the unique ways we can enjoy eating them, so likewise a Fauxreo must deliver Oreo magic no matter the snacking style. When this culinary time machine takes off, no one gets left behind. More

Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies

I once thought that I didn't like meringue cookies. The ones from the store always reminded me of styrofoam and never had enough flavor to be worth my time. Then, in culinary school, I started messing around with chocolate left over from a molding lesson and some unused egg whites and I wound up with a meringue cookie to die for. They have a great texture and deep chocolate flavor—plus, they're gluten-free! More

Chocolate Log Cookies

Though they might resemble baby Bûche de Noëls, these sweet treats are all cookie: a deep, dark, chocolaty crumbly and buttery cookie smothered in chocolate frosting. Add some easy decorating touches with writing icing for the log's cross-section, and the tines of a fork to form a bark texture, and you've got a treat that is as adorable as it is sweet. More
