Cookie Monster: Hazelnut Apricot Macarons

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 2 comments

So many macarons available these day are just plain bad. Cracked shells with air bubbles. Fillings that taste like nothing. And still carrying two or three dollar a cookie price tags. The solution, in my mind, is simple: only buy really great macarons when out, and satisfy my craving at home. More

Hazelnut Apricot Macarons

Serious Eats Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

Hazelnut flour can be used in place of almond flour to make French macarons, creating a still light but slightly more nutty cookie. Apricot jam makes the perfect fruity but not too sweet filling. More

Cookie Monster: Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

Though I have a weakness for anything coming out of an Italian bakery case, I'll admit that sometimes the sprinkle-covered cookies can be dry, or, despite their coatings, not actually sweet enough. This recipe solves those problems, making them as tasty as they are fun to look at. More

Cookie Monster: Basil Cornmeal Sandwich Cookies with Apricot Filling

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

Typically when I approach my mother's basil plant, I come at it like an Army hairdresser to a new recruit: the thing leaves shorn to the scalp and practically bald. (Hey, it's a fact of life when you like to eat pesto straight out of the bowl.) This time, I decided to be lenient and use just a few of the larger leaves. Which happens to be enough to make these cookies. More
