Cookies are my nemesis.
I can work through just about anything else, but cookies require far more attention to detail to work with my unabashedly lazy style in the kitchen. I came across this recipe over at the marion house book, and something about Emma’s promise of perfectly delicious cookies made me march into the kitchen.
I’m so glad I gave this recipe a whirl. They’re crispy and buttery chewy and moist all at the same time. Looooooook, you can see the flaky goodness:
However, all this comes at a price. The sifting of the flour is actually pretty important, as is the timing, almost down to the second. My oven at 350F produces near-perfect cookies at the eight minute mark and not a moment longer.
So head on over to Emma’s blog to check out her recipe, and while you’re there, take a peek around her house. It’s absolutely stunning.
And whatever you do, don’t ask me to make caramel…
