Yep, life is sweet when work involves cookies! Today’s shot is a sneak peek from the studio; I’m playing around with styling these beautiful meringues and, of course, getting to know the product by sampling all nine flavors…They are like tiny, edible works of art. Fun to shoot, even more fun to eat!

These French-style meringue cookies are made locally in Minneapolis/St. Paul by Bistro Meringues. Find them at Kowalski’s, Whole Foods, Lunds/Byerly’s and more.

I’m not sure how I missed National Chocolate Chip Cookie day a couple weeks back, but I’ve been trying to make up for it ever since. I figure the best way to honor these beloved cookies is to bake them often and strive for perfection.

Day 4: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been working with a whole wheat version from Good to the Grain. I adapt the recipe slightly ; rather than 3 cups of whole wheat flour, I use 1 cup each whole wheat, white whole wheat, and unbleached all-purpose flour and 10 ounces of dark chocolate chips.

I created this batch in honor of Sawyer’s last day of school and made them extra big for a celebratory lunch box treat! Happy summer!
