Cookies



Cookies may be fun to make but they're even better to eat. And with thousands of variations spanning so many flavors and shapes, there's a cookie out there for every taste. Creative bakers have made them into sandwiches and bars, coated them with ganache, filled them with jam and even stuffed them with candy. There's really no end to the possibilities. F&W's guide to these tiny desserts offers tons of holiday ideas, healthy recipes (yes, really) and lessons from the experts for perfecting your techniques.

Double-Chocolate Rye Cookies

A mix of unsweetened cocoa and bittersweet chocolate bars gives these fudgy cookies a deep chocolate flavor. Dark rye flour adds a lightly savory note that balances the sweet intensity of dark chocolate well and plays off the crunchy sea salt garnish. The addition of light brown sugar makes these cookies extra chewy and helps to extend their shelf life. Don't skip the chilling time; the dough will be soft when first mixed and will spread too much if baked immediately. The cookies are a treat on their own, but they can also be filled with Vegan Vanilla Bean Ice Cream to make vegan ice cream sandwiches. (To assemble, scoop about 1/3 cup ice cream onto flat side of 1 cooled cookie; top with a second cookie, flat side down. Wrap in plastic wrap; freeze until ice cream is firm, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately, or freeze up to 3 days.)

Cannabis-Infused Chocolate Pretzel Cookies

These chewy, malty chocolate cookies are ideal for chocolate-covered pretzel fans. Since the recipe calls for olive oil instead of butter, the dough will be quite soft when it's first mixed, but will firm up to the perfect scoopable consistency after a couple of hours in the fridge. If you'd like to skip the Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil, just swap in an additional amount of regular olive oil. Note: As cannabis regulation continues to evolve across the United States and around the world, please consult your local laws.
