It’s no surprise that I like desserts.

I like cakes with buttery icing and cookies that leave your fingers gooey with chocolate. I’m partial to golden-crusted pies with sweet, bubbling insides. I like drippy ice cream cones, eating dough off the beaters, and pastries that leave flakes all over the kitchen, but there’s still one thing that’s sweeter than all of the treats in the world.

In my world, it’s seeing little eyes peer over the edge of the counter. It’s the little hands that paw at the back of my apron, begging for a handful of marshmallows or chocolate chips. It’s kissing pairs of  cinnamon sugar coated lips and the look of joyful surprise on those faces when they come home to the smell of fresh baked cookies or loaves of bread.

Just like with anything else we might partake in, the food we make in our kitchens is only as special as the people we’re sharing it with. So if you needed a reminder today to bake something on behalf of your neighbor or your boyfriend or your Nana who lives 300 miles away, this is it. Bake for other people- it tastes better that way.

Brown Butter Bourbon Madeleines

These little brown butter bourbon madeleines are the cutest. They’re rich and satisfying despite being only a bite or two, and every single morsel is loaded with flavor- first butter and then bourbon, followed by rich chocolate and pecans. These treats are entirely decadent to enjoy, plus just look at them. They’re adorable. Who wouldn’t want to dive into these?

Truthfully, I’ve not made a ton of madeleines before these brown butter bourbon madeleines. I only invested in a pan (this one!) about a year ago and have since dabbled with recipes and how-to’s that I’ve found on the internet. My first few attempts were good, but what made me settle on these brown butter bourbon madeleines is that every single flavor here is elevated in a really special way. Madeleines are already known for their buttery flavor, and here, the brown butter is the star. We add bourbon for a subtle warmth and caramel flavor, and then we dip the whole thing in a bourbon ganache that is ultra boozy and screams “CHOCOLATE!” Pecans seemed like a natural fit here too, so I thought, “Why not?”

Making the Madeleines

If you’ve never made madeleines before, here’s a few ins and outs you’ll want to take note of:

First, a madeleine pan is kinda essential, but not a deal breaker. Yes, I hear you, you don’t want another random pan that only suits one purpose. I get it. Feel free to try this exact recipe in a mini muffin tin. You’ll miss out on the pretty shell shape, but I’ve tried it and they still make for a yummy treat.

Second, resting your batter here serves a purpose but we can work around it. Allowing the batter to chill in the fridge for a few hours helps to ensure your madeleines puff and rise to create that signature hump in the middle (click here for more on that), but you can totally skip that too if you’d prefer. They’ll still puff up some. Third: madeleines are loaded with butter and are best eaten the day they’re prepared. They’ll still taste delicious on day two, but they’re really meant to be enjoyed nearly fresh from the oven. Not that they’d stick around that long anyways.

If you’re a little unsure on browning butter, don’t worry- I’ve got you covered with a tutorial here. Not sure about ganache? Got you covered on that too. The ganache on these brown butter bourbon madeleines isn’t 100% necessary, but I think that added element contributes loads of flavor and makes these little guys over the top. If you’d rather keep them plain Jane, a simple sprinkle of confectioner’s sugar would do nicely too. Your choice.

Give these brown butter bourbon madeleines a try and let me know what you think! Have a great Tuesday and cheers to you!

Brown Butter Bourbon Madeleines with Dark Chocolate Ganache and Pecans

  • Author: Kate
  • Prep Time: 30
  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 18
  • Category: Dessert

Ingredients

For the madeleines:

  • 7 tablespoons (100 gm) unsalted butter, plus more for buttering the pan
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup (70 gm) sugar
  • 11/2 tablespoons bourbon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (70 gm) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

For the topping:

  • ½ cup (120 gm) heavy whipping cream
  • 4 ounces chopped dark chocolate (I use 60-70% cocoa baking bars)
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • ½ cup (55 gm) finely chopped toasted pecans

Instructions

To make the madeleines:

  1. Place the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and brown it. Allow the butter to melt completely and the continue cooking, stirring the whole time, until golden flecks appear at the bottom of the pan and the mixture begins to smell warm and nutty. Do not burn the butter. Remove the mixture from heat and pour immediately into a small bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar until pale and slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Add the bourbon and vanilla extract and stir to combine. Add the flour and salt and fold to combine. Add the browned butter and fold the mixture just until combined. Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge to chill for 2 hours or overnight.
  3. When ready to make, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and melt 2 tablespoons of butter to liberally grease a madeleine pan. Spoon 1 tablespoons of batter into each madeleine pan and then bake in the preheated oven for about 13 minutes, or until the tops are puffed and the edges and bottom of each madeleine is golden. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool while you make your ganache.

To finish your madeleines:

  1. Warm the heavy whipping cream over the stove or in the microwave just until it’s about to boil. Remove from heat and then pour over the dark chocolate in a medium-sized bowl. Allow it to rest for 3-4 minutes. Whisk the warm cream and chocolate together until smooth. If small chunks of chocolate remain, place back in the microwave for 20 second increments until it is smooth. Stir in the bourbon.
  2. Dip each madeleine in the ganache and then sprinkle with/dip in pecans. Set the madeleines aside on a sheet of parchment or wax paper to set. Madeleines are best eaten the day they are prepared but can be saved overnight if needed.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe By Wood and Spoon Blog by Kate Wood. These are coconut oil and flaxseed meal egg cookies make with jumbo dark chocolate chunks with gooey centers.

First things first: I am not a vegan. I love butter more than the average bear and go through an ungodly amount of eggs each week. Give me heavy cream and regular ice cream any day, okay? But sometimes we want options. We want to share food with our health-concious friends and make desserts that those on diet restrictions can enjoy too. I started working on these vegan chocolate chip cookies for my sister who had been following a vegan diet for a few years. In a strange turn of events, she liberalized her diet right around the time that I finally nailed these cookies, but I’m thrilled either way because these cookies are the bomb. They’re just really good. Let me give you the scoop on them.

These vegan chocolate chip cookies are a coconut oil-based treat made with organic sugars, all-purpose flour, and dark vegan chocolate. A flaxseed egg (flaxseed meal mixed with a bit of water) holds the whole thing together to create a cookie that is chewy throughout and slightly caramel in flavor. In creating these cookies, I knew I wanted them to be adaptable for a number of scenarios, so I tested one million (well, more like 25) versions of these cookies to identify which were the most pleasing. I had several road bumps along the way, but I think I’ve ironed out enough of the wrinkles so that you can enjoy delicious vegan chocolate chip cookies in your own home kitchen.

Sugars

This recipe calls for organic sugar and organic brown sugar. You can use regular granulated and brown sugar, although you may find that your final cookie spreads differently than the ones pictured here. A lot of people are unaware that most processed sugars are not actually vegan, so organic sugars are your best bet if you want to stay on the safe side.

Fat

I chose coconut oil for this recipe because vegan butters are hard to come by in my local grocery store. It’s important to buy coconut oil that is solid at room temperature and not the liquid variety. I did not test this recipe with vegan butter or other plant-based fats, but if you try it let me know how they turn out!

This is a one bowl simple recipe that requires no rest time. Cookies can be made ahead and stored in the freezer. Find the recipe and how to for these dairy free treats on thewoodandspoon.com

Flour

I tested this recipe both with regular all-purpose flour and gluten free cup-for-cup flour. I noticed that the GF flour cookies were a bit thicker than the original recipe, but you may also notice differences from brand to brand. For reference, I typically use King Arthur Flours. I opted to not use alternative grains here, primarily because I wanted to create a cookie that tasted like a classic chocolate chipper.

Please note that even just a small change in the amount of flour can alter this dough. If you find that your cookies are consistently way too thick or a little dry, it could be that you need to add a tablespoon or two less flour. If they spread way too much, you may benefit from adding an extra tablespoon or two of flour the next time around. Every person measures flour differently, so for best results you may want to weigh your ingredients.

Chocolate

After quite a bit of research on vegan chocolate, I learned that some varieties of chocolate are “accidentally” vegan. Lindt baking bars and Trader Joe’s Pound Plus baking bars are two options for people not wanting to spend crazy dollars on fancy chocolate. I did find that the Lindt chocolate bubbled oddly on the tops of the cookies, but they still tasted terrific. I shot for 68-72% cacao chocolate, but you can use whatever works for you.

Please note that if you use chocolate chips, your final cookie will turn out differently. The chips are not meant to melt as easily as the baking bars; expect cookies that are thicker with less spread. One of the things I love about these cookies are the pools of chocolate on top. If you like this look too, chop up most of your chocolate into 1/4″-1/2″ pieces. Save a few larger 3/4″-1″ chunks to press on top of the cookie dough balls before baking. Just a little bit of chunky chocolate on top (or near the top!) of each ball should do the trick.

Temperature

This is the least predictable variable here. I almost lost sleep over these cookies due to problems with oven temp. Here’s the deal: in a super hot oven, the cookies will melt and spread like crazy, making little puddles of greasy dough with weirdly crispy edges. If you know your oven bakes hot, I’d encourage you to do a test run cookie and adjust the temp by 10 or so degrees as needed. If your cookie melts insanely, just notch the heat down and bake the rest at a slightly lower temperature. You can also chill your dough a bit, but I found that adjusting the heat was the best bet. For best results, use a heavy, non-insulated pan lined with a sheet of parchment paper.

Final Word

Just when I think I’ve figured baking out, something surprises me and I learn something new. If you have interesting results with these cookies, please tell me about it! We can troubleshoot issues or celebrate triumphs, because at the end of the day everyone learns a little bit more when they share their experience. So if you make these, tell me about it! I think you’ll love them, and I can’t wait to hear all about it. Happy baking, friends!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

These vegan chocolate chip cookies are a coconut oil based cookie made with a flaxseed meal egg, organic sugars, and vegan dark chocolate. Option for gluten free cookie is available as well. 

  • Author: Kate Wood
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 15
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 11

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup (120 gm) coconut oil, firm not liquid
  • ¼ cup (50 gm) organic cane sugar
  • ½ cup (100 gm) organic brown sugar
  • 11/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 11/4 cups (160 gm) all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces coarsely chopped (1/4-1/2″ pieces) semisweet or bittersweet vegan baking chocolate (see notes)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare one or two large baking sheets with a sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Combine the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl and set aside for at least five minutes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the coconut oil, cane sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla, beating on medium speed just until combined, about 30 seconds. Add the flaxseed mixture and beat just to combine. Add the flour, soda, baking powder, and salt and stir just to combine. Add the chopped chocolate and fold to combine.
  4. Scoop out large balls (I use a large cookie scoop or about 3 tablespoons) of dough and place them two inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. If you want large pools of chocolate on top of your cookies, make sure there are some larger chunks of chocolate close to the top of the cookie rounds. If you notice your dough is really soft and melty, place in the fridge or freezer to firm up, about 30 minutes. Bake in the preheated oven about 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown and set around the edges.

Notes

  • If you don’t have a problem with using regular granulated or brown sugar, you can substitute that here, however, most standard sugars are not truly vegan. I used Wholesome Cane and Brown Sugar for these cookies.
  • Be sure that your coconut oil is not liquidy or melted. This recipe was tested using solid coconut oil, although there were some small differences between brands.
  • If you choose to use chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips instead of large chopped chocolate, the shape of your cookie will differ. I prefer to pat my dough balls down a bit when using chocolate chips as they will not spread quite as much as with the large chunks.
  • You can substitute GF flour here, although the cookies may spread slightly differently. Test the baking out on one or two to verify that they will bake as you’d like. If they spread too much, refrigerate the dough, and if they stay more puffed than you’d like, slightly press down on the dough balls.
  • I use Trader Joe’s Pound Plus Baking bar which is accidentally vegan. If you don’t have a variety you love, standard chocolate can be used. Please read my tips above regarding chocolate chips vs. baking bars.

Triple Chocolate Cookies

Triple Chocolate Cookies Recipe by The Wood and Spoon Blog by Kate Wood. A rich, soft, and chewy dark chocolate chip cookies with crispy crunchy edges and gooey white and milk / semisweet chocolate chips. This recipe used dutch processed cocoa powder and tastes even better with salty flakes of sea salt on top. This is a simple, one bowl cookie that the whole family will love and will feed a crowd.

I want to tell you all about these super simple, super sweet, super everything triple chocolate cookies, but first, I need to tell you about the super hilarious absurdity that is my life. About one of those moments where you’re uncertain, embarrassed, and possibly even peeing your pants with terror. I need to tell you about skiing.

Big Sky

This past week, we made the trek to Big Sky, Montana for a weekend of skiing with our friends. All and all, it was a great trip, complete with lots of laughter, a few new jokes, and (bonus!) no major injuries. While I had a terrific time, there’s no denying that I experienced a bit of anxiety. You see, this was only my second ski trip ever, my first being about two years ago when we visited Park City, Utah. Ohh, that first trip was a doozie.

I got to Park City determined to dominate the sport, and the first morning of ski school went by with flying colors. Strap on boots- check. Snap on skis- check. Walk with skis on, learn the pizza wedge, figure out how to get on the magic carpet- check, check, check. I was a natural. In my mind, I had graduated from the bunny slopes and was totally prepared for anything. We went down a few dinky runs (one was called “The Turtle” if that gives you any indication of the speed I was moving), and after a few successful runs, I was cocky enough to George Jefferson myself to the big leagues.

Triple Chocolate Cookies
Forgive the iPhone photos… no one needed for me to attempt to bring my SLR up the mountain.

Mom, just in case you’re wondering, I’m not pregnant… just in my marshmallow coat.

A Dose of Humility

Let’s sidebar for a few words of wisdom: a little humility goes a long way. I highly recommend participating in a few activities each year that you utterly suck at, because it’s not cool to be good at everything. Nobody likes the guy or gal who makes everything look effortless. Sometimes you need a little snow shoved in your face to remember that you aren’t the king of the world. Sometimes you need to look like an obese marshmallow sliding recklessly down a snowy abyss to keep your head out of the clouds.

To be clear, I was not ready for the big leagues. I wasn’t even ready to leave The Turtle. I got up to the top of that mountain (read: barely halfway up the side of a slightly more challenging, baby-sized green run), and the wheels fell off. Fear completely took over and I forgot everything I had learned in my morning of ski school. I felt like I was flying down the mountain, and not in a cool, sporty, Lindsey Vonn kind of way. It was more of like a car-on-fire-driving-through-an-oil-spill, bear-running-with-his-head-stuck-in-a-beehive, Mario-skidding-out-of-control-on-Donkey-Kong’s-banana-peel kind of way. I was like a bat out of hell with zero control and it. was. terrifying.

Falls Down Mental and Physical Mountains

After falling, I don’t know, maybe 30 times, it was game over. My chest got tight and I could feel my eyes burning with tears, and I knew there was no way I could make it down in one piece. Absurdly, I had probably only gone 20 yards total so far- there was a long way to go.

Triple Chocolate Cookies

Triple Chocolate Cookies
I discovered that après ski is my favorite- cocktails and jacuzzi. The French make everything sound sexy, don’t they?

Although I made a pact after that trip to never ski again, I got suckered into the trip that happened this past weekend. I’m proud to say that I made some improvements, and am actually looking forward to another ski trip in the future. Although I’m still pretty amateur hour and there’s still a bit of anxiety, I skied, I didn’t cry, and darnit, that’s just about all I need to convince myself that there’s hope. The moral of the story is this: be brave enough to try new things. Don’t let anyone (including yourself) tell you you can’t do something. If you fall off the horse (or the mountain), get back on again. And finally, if you’re skiing for the first time and have previously birthed 2 children, adult diapers are your friend. (TMI? Check yes or no.)

Triple Chocolate Cookies

These triple chocolate cookies have absolutely nothing to do with skiing. Nothing. But they’re kinda perfect cookies, and lest you think I’m some kind of magical genie who does everything in life as well as I baked these treats, you now have embarrassing evidence of that time I wet my pants and cried my way down a tiny snow-covered hill. Remember, humility is good, right?

The Ingredients

A dark chocolate cookie dough, chewy and soft-baked, with semisweet and white chocolate chips, these triple chocolate cookies are every chocolate lover’s dream. The dough is relatively simple and almost pitch-black thanks to the addition of dark cocoa powder. Once a few of the regulars are added (eggs, vanilla, flour, etc.), we toss in the chocolate chips. You can use any of your favorites, but since the dough is dark and slightly salty, I like the sweetness of semi and white chocolate. If you like extra salty cookies, you can add a sprinkling of sea salt at the end like I did. It makes these cookies look extra fancy and balances out the sweet chocolate chips.

A friend who tried these triple chocolate cookies  told me that they tasted like the Domino cookies at Subway, and somehow, that is in no way disappointing. I love the familiarity of this cookie, and respect it for its crowd-pleasing abilities. Triple chocolate cookies sound decadent and special, yet somehow are approved by the masses- anyone can enjoy this treat. Unless they don’t like chocolate, in which case, their vote doesn’t count.

I’d love to hear about your skiing tips or recommendations- does anyone have a favorite place to vacay? Brett and I are planning to take another trip next winter so that I can improve my skills before our kiddos are old enough to hit the slopes. If we happen to see each other on the mountain, my advice to you is this: stay out of my way. Newbie over here, remember? Give these triple chocolate cookies a try and let me know what you think! Cheers and happy Wednesday!

A dark chocolate cookie dough filled with semisweet and white chocolate chips, these triple chocolate cookies and rich, dark, sweet and salty.

  • Author: Kate Wood
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 17

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (11/2 sticks/ 170 gm) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150 gm) packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100 gm) sugar
  • 1 egg (50 gm out of shell)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (130 gm) flour
  • 3/4 cup (70 gm) dutch process/ dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon (8 gm) cornstarch
  • 1 cup (180 gm) white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (180 gm) semisweet chocolate chips
  • Fleur de Sel or Sea Salt, if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare two sheet pans with parchment paper or silicone baking sheets.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Scrape the sides of the bowl and add the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cornstarch, beating just until almost combined. Add the chocolate chips and continue beating until ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. Scoop 3 tablespoon sized scoops (I use a large cookie scoop) of cookie dough out 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with sea salt, if you desire a saltier cookie. If the dough has gotten too soft, chill briefly in the fridge for about 5 minutes. Bake for 12-15 minutes until edges of the cookie are set. The center of the cookie may still seem slightly underdone. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet or on a cooling rack.

Notes

  • If you use a smaller mound of dough, your baking time will alter. Bake until the edges are set and the center looks nearly done.
  • If your first pan of cookies doesn’t spread enough, your dough may be too cold! If it spreads too much, you can firm up the dough in the fridge for the next batch.
