How to Make a Perfect Cookie

the perfect cookie

Over at Nicky’s Kitchen Sanctuary they are trying to answer the old question of how to make a perfect cookie in the “Cookie Experiment“. Not only a beautiful cookie but also one that is delicious and since we love delicious here we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to write about it!  With all of the variations of flour, white sugar vs brown sugar and even how long to refrigerate Nicky relies on the help of her office friends to do the tough job of taste testing for the perfect cookie.

So, interested in the results? It seems that refrigerating the cookie after preparation and before baking really gives all the flavors a chance to develop. Actually the winning cookie didn’t only need 2 hours of refrigeration as the instructions stated but actually sat overnight.

Cotton candy is a simple food.  It’s sold mostly at your local carnival and is full of sugar.  Kids cry for it and we love it.  Cotton candy has wonderful color and always brings a smile to the people that hold it.  We would like to highlight some beautiful shots of the colorful life of cotton candy from some wonderful photographers.

We like to see a well made and well designed product.  Especially when it’s around ice cream.  This group of Phin & Phebes started out some years ago to create a unique product. They not only take their ice cream seriously but also the beautiful packaging the ice cream comes in.

If you’re lucky and near Brooklyn you might be able to some free tastes. (via nerdfluffery and Phin & Phebes)
