How cute and clever are these matchstick cookies? Basically they’re just shortbread cookies baked in a long rectangular shape, dipped in colorful chocolate, and arranged in a box. Voila! The perfect gift for pyromaniacs. [Neatorama]

The Turducken of Cookies: The ChocoOreoChip Cookie

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 the turducken is to novelty Thanksgiving meats. I believe she invented this cookie, but if she didn’t, I don’t want to know. What I do want know is have you ever created a totally off-the-wall baking or cooking innovation? Keep reading »

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 is $400,000, The New York Times reports. The only person who is going to have a BakeBot will be P. Diddy. [YouTube via New York Times] Keep reading »

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 a set of nutrition guidelines the Pennsylvania Board of Education is considering for school parties. Only, she got the details wrong—what the Board is actually debating is encouraging parents to offer only one sweet per kid at parties and include fruits and vegetables as well. “I wanted these kids to bring home the idea to their parents for discussion. Who should be deciding what I eat? Should it be government or should it be parents? It should be the parents.” Keep reading »

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 in every design imaginable from Louboutin shoes to pink cocktails to scary Santa Clauses. Jenni’s Cookies also creates customizable cookies for parties, weddings, or baby showers. The only problem with these cookies? Your guests might remember their sugar treat more than the occasion.

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. This means I regularly pop into corner stores on my way to the host’s house to pick up some cheap flowers, a six-pack, or dessert to contribute to the evening. These offerings aren’t exactly original, so I pulled something out of my mother’s arsenal the other night: cookies in a jar. “Make” oatmeal — or another variety — of cookies by following my video primer. Here’s the recipe I used: Country Oatmeal Cookie In A Jar (I left out the chocolate chips and walnuts). Keep reading for links to other varieties! Keep reading »

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, and even go on vacation. But she got caught. And yesterday, she was sentenced to cough up $20,000 in restitution. Ward’s going to have to be a tough cookie to deal with all of those angry girl scouts. Maybe they should make a new badge in her honor? Something with the scales of justice embroidered on it?

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 day he had an epiphany and decided to go to baking school. Once he realized his true calling, he started his own bakery, and the rest is history. My favorite flavor is the “Summaiya.” They’re chewy oatmeal cookies with raisins, sour cherries and, get this, crushed potato chips. It’s a perfect sweet, sour and salty combination. Jon told me he put so many different layers in this one because Summaiya “had a simplicity about her, but she was very complicated at the same time.” Now I want a cookie named after me. I’m thinking chewy chocolate with raspberry chocolate chips. Here’s hoping Jon needs a new BFF. [$45 for tin with six dozen cookies, Dough-Ray-Me]
