cookie carnival :: november

it's that time again--the cookie carnival is underway for November. to join up, please email me (kate AT the clean plate club DOT ).

i totally intended to have this up sooner, but, what can i say, i got swept up in election fever.

this month we attempt a classic! sure, we've all done them before, but i think it's because they are worthy.

this month's recipe comes from Regan Daley from her absolutely fabulous MUST-HAVE book, In The Sweet Kitchen.

the only issue i can find with this book is that there are not enough photos of her creations, there's a few, but just not enough. in addition to the creative, mouth-watering recipes this book has everything you could ever need to know about baking--conversion charts, flavor pairings, info on tools and ingredients that are detailed and smart, but Daley is never condescending. if anyone ever wants to start-up a Sweet Kitchen recipe-a-month kind of thing, i'm all over it.

so, i'm very excited to try her recipe :: THE ULTIMATE CHEWY and SOFT CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES. i haven't yet tried them and am excited to as i have loved everything in the book that i've tried so far!

her intro:
Crisp and Crunchy have their place in the world of biscuits, but not, I believe, in the best and simplest chocolate chip cookie. If you like chewy, cakey and full to the brim with chocolate, these are for you. oh yes. they are for me. and hopefully for you, as well!

also---Food For Thought the foodie bookclub is officially rolling! email me if you want to join up! our book selection for November is Waiter Rant :: Thanks for the Tip--Confessions of a Cynical Waiter by Steve Dublanica Aka The Waiter

What the heck! You have tons of posts over here that haven't updated onto Bloglines! I thought you were napping! I came over to finally comment on your Exploration post since I finally finished mine (Irealized as soon as I started reading yours that I should wait until I was done with mine so as to not totally change it around - good to know for next time). ANyway, looks like I have some catching up to do. WOnder what happened there...

Ok, what do I do to participate in the cookie thing?:) I don't have to make a sugar syrup, do I?
