C is for Cookie

January 25, 2010

In addition to both being huge, blue and furry, Cookie Monster and I also share a love for cookies.

Om nom nom nom!

One of the cons of spending the winter holidays in India (there aren’t many) was that I missed Christmas cookie season. For whatever reason, they’re less appreciative of Giada’s Peppermint-Chocolate Sandwich cookies in Kolkata.

I compensated for the lack of cookies by stuffing my face with mishtis, as they call sweets in Bengali, but I still missed my favorite holiday treat: pecan sandies, as devised by Martha Stewart.

These cookies are light, airy and divine. I can — and have — eaten an entire tin in one sitting (hence the resemblance to Cookie Monster…). They’re pretty simple too. Low-hanging fruit for the inexperienced baker — or the grad student limited by her inadequate kitchen.
