Are You Ready For A Chocolate Chip Cookie Grilled Cheese Sandwich?

At first glance, this grilled cheese cookie sandwich looks, well, let’s go with “disconcerting.” I mean, the melted orange cheese between two chocolate chip cookies? It’s weird. It’s unexpected. It’s…delicious? Yep, according to its creator, Chef Stef of The Cupcake Project, this hybrid confection is the ultimate dessert: a perfect union of sweet and salty,…

Weekend Project: Cookie Dough Crispy Treats

I just started watching “Friday Night Lights” (I know, you guys, I know), and obviously I’m obsessed with Tami Taylor. Best. Mom. Ever. Who else can give amazing advice, crack brilliantly sarcastic jokes, serve as the moral compass of an entire town, maintain a flawless hair style, and whip up 200 Rice Krispie treats at…

Jimmy Fallon and the Roots? Colin Powell? Miss USA contestants? Move over, everyone: Cookie Monster is here with a cookie-centric (of course) “Call Me Maybe” cover. “Share It Maybe” is all about (duh) sharing your cookies. I might have listened to it seven times already this morning. I just might have. [YouTube.com/SesameStreet]…

Oh My, It’s First Lady Cookie Bake-Off Time

The cookie bake-off between the First Lady and her husband’s opponent’s wife is afoot. You can’t see me rolling my eyes, but trust me, it is happening. Please, please, please, can Hillary run for president in 2016 so the world can learn Bill Clinton’s Rice Krispy treats? [Slate]
We know all about the…

It’s my birthday this week (you can send all b-day wishes care of The Frisky offices, thanks!) and my mom made me cookies. These are her special chocolate chip Oreo cookies, which are homemade chocolate chip cookies with Oreo cookies baked inside. Blam! I just blew your mind, didn’t I? This is to cookies what…

Wish List: A $400,000 Cookie-Baking Robot

 

It’s good to know the folks at MIT have the best minds of our generation focused on what’s really important: a robot who can bake cookies named BakeBot. Don’t expect your own private C3PO to be baking a fresh batch of Snickerdoodles anytime soon, though. The price tag on a cookie-baking robot…

Sarah Palin Fights The Cookie War

Yesterday, Sarah Palin brought cookies to an appearance at Plumstead Christian School. No, she wasn’t trying to bribe the kids for votes if she runs in 2012. She was protesting big government. “I heard that there’s a debate going on in Pennsylvania over whether public schools were going to ban sweets,” she explained, referring to…

Tasty Edible Art

We’re not big sugar cookie lovers at The Frisky–most we’ve tried tasted awful and were too hard. But after sampling Jenni’s Cookies, we’ve realized sugar cookies are quite tasty when done right. Jenni’s Cookies have the perfect amount of sugar and aren’t too sweet. Plus, they’re beautiful! Each cookie is hand-painted–not frosted–with royal icing i…

10-Minute Hostess Gift: Cookies In A Jar

Lately, my group of friends has gotten really into home entertaining. Call it an effect of the recession if you please, but we’re hosting potlucks, game nights, and movie screenings at out apartments like it’s nobody’s business.

Girl Scout Leader Embezzles Cookie Fund

Talk about stealing from the cookie jar. In Dayton, Ohio a former Girl Scout troop leader, Tamara Jo Ward, was convicted of taking $28,000 over the course of five years from the bank account where her troop stored their cookie money. Using a debit card, she used the money to pay her bills, buy groceries,…

Crave: Dough Ray Me Cookies

I’m seriously addicted to these itty-bitty cookies. Each kind is named after friends of the company’s owner, Jon Chazen. “It’s a way to honor them,” he says. “I don’t name them after anyone I was intimate with—no ex-girlfriends, not even my wife—and she understands.” Jon worked at Barneys New York selling women’s shoes, but one…

The Daily Squeeze: Lil Wayne’s Success, Carbs, And Another Cindy McCain’s Recipe Blunder

Lil Wayne’s album Tha Carter III is the first album since 50 Cent’s The Massacre to sell more than a million copies in a single week. The first single off Lil Wayne’s album is “Lollipop,” and the first single off 50 Cent’s was “Candy Shop.” Is this a coincidence, or do songs about oral sex…

Presidential Candidates’ Spouses Participate In Cookie Bake-Off

Every year, Family Circle magazine has a cookie-off among the potential first spouses’ recipes, and the vote often goes the same way as general election. In 2004, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s pumpkin spice cookies lost to Laura Bush’s oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies; in 2000, Laura’s Texas Governor’s Mansion Cowboy cookies beat Tipper Gore’s ginger snaps; and…

Crave: Cake-sicle Molds

I just saw this and went, “Holy crap, why didn’t I think of this bazillion dollar idea?!” Put a stick in anything and you’ve got solid gold people. Cookie/cake popsicles are no exception, especially when you’re prone to getting chocolate chip fingerprints on your new white dress, like I am. [Amazon.com]…

Girl Scouts Wear Badges For A Reason

Mmmm, Girl Scout Cookies. The things I’ve done to a box of those bad boys are too embarrassing to type. But it turns out I have more that one reason to feel guilty for eating so many. Two 12-year old Girl Scouts in Ann Arbor, Michigan, are refusing to hock the schlock treats because the…
