Gluten-free chocolate and chili roll-out cookies.
'chocolate cookies' on Serious Eats
These Jack-O-Lanterns are made from thin chocolate roll-out cookies sandwiched over peanut butter. They're chocolatey-nutty, crispy-creamy, Halloween treats.
Adapted from Beatrice Harlib's 1952 Pillsbury Bakeoff Grand Prize-winning recipe, this version adds cinnamon and ginger for a lightly spiced take on a traditional butter cookie. The original recipe calls for semi-sweet chocolate chips, which will do in a pinch, but for serious chocolate lovers, I find using the best quality dark chocolate you can get is always a worthy substitution.
The flavor is delicate cocoa, orange, honey, and almond, coated in chocolate, and naturally, generously filled with rich dulce de leche.
These chocolate walnut cookies have a grown-up hint of espresso.
This recipe is essentially for Fauxreos, but with the addition of hot coffee to create a thick, cake-like batter that is spread with a spatula, not rolled out.
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.
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!
These chocolate chocolate chip hazelnut cookies are filled with Nutella.
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.
