Martha Stewart’s Cookies

Brandy Snaps curled on a whisk handle.

This past week I’ve been too busy to post (photo edit and write) but I was cooking and baking. I had brought ‘Martha Stewart’s Cookies’ as a gift, but after flipping thru it I decided it’s a keeper. The book breaks down into categories of texture and recipes range from super simple to somewhat advance. Forgive me for not writing out the recipes, it’s too much typing for my liking and I secretly fear Martha would disapprove (legally). The book is huge and it’s 34% off on

Brandy snaps don’t contain any brandy, and also doesn’t contain any eggs. Uses golden syrup and can be made completely vegan.
Cat tongues taste like they are far harder to make than actually is. (I skipped the sifting part, don’t tell Martha.)
Double Chocolate Coconut Cookies, with coconut, walnuts and white chocolate. I didn’t use enough white chocolate or walnuts but it still turned out great.

    I got this book for a steal at Costco – and I love it! I have only made the peanut butter whoopie pies so far, but they were worth the price of the book alone!

    I make a carmel white choclate chip cookie that will blow your taste buds to pieces. My question is: How do I enter your cookie photo contest?

    These cookies look amazing! I’m a big fan of Martha Stewart stuff, and I was pretty excited when I heard about this book. I’m waiting for my library to get it in so I can give it a test-drive. High-fives for showcasing your baking!

    I am planning to make brandy snaps for Christmas, I found a recipe on the internet but I can’t seem to join the site to ask any questions. So I was wondering how far in advance I can make the shells?
