They may be small, but that just means you can eat more of them…right??

When it comes to cookies, I usually think the simpler, the better. But when you come home from Europe and your Dad has done a Costco run for you and there is a giant box of Oreos on your counter….you find something to do with them.

My favorite cookie at Paradise Bakery when I’m shopping at Pioneer Place Mall is the Lemon Zinger. It has amazing lemon flavor that isn’t too sweet and a little tart! About a year ago, I was thinking about replicating them but instead of a sugar cookie texture, making it more cakey. Well I found a recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Brown Eyed Baker, and I thought I’d try them out. Michelle is great, and every recipe I’ve tried of hers has come out amazing. Why would these cookies be any different? They weren’t.

I’ll be the first to tell you that I don’t even like Snickerdoodles. My mom (Shirl the Pearl) made them while I was a kid and of course I ate them, but I would have never asked for them over any others. A few years ago when Fabian came to visit me during Christmas break he had the chance to try them and really liked them.
Looking at the Martha Stewart Cookie Book I started to rethink my harsh judgment against them. What drew me to the recipe specifically was the amount of ingredients and the fact that all of them are always in my kitchen! No last minute run to the store to grab whatever is missing, it’s stuff I already have! Yay! :)

Okay, if you don’t own the Martha Stewart Cookie Book yet (or the e-book, go me!) you need to get it! I can’t even begin to tell you how many delicious cookie recipes there are, aaand they are organized by texture! Yesss..Amazing.
The first cookies I made from the book were these delicious Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies. And you all know I have a favorite recipe already…but these are seriously too freaking good. They have lower amounts of sugar and butter which gives them a fluffy cakey texture. It makes them feel lighter than a typical chocolate chip cookie. Warning, they feel so light that you feel like you can eat ten instead of five!

Mmm. America’s favorite cookie. And with all the popularity that the chocolate chip cookie has, it’s still hard to find one with the right balance of crispy/chewy that I’m looking for. I also am one of the few people that enjoys a cookie that is not entirely full of chocolate chips.. (I know, I know..weird) But if I wanted all that chocolate I’d made fudge. Right?
