I finished off the Birthday Feast with cookies instead of birthday cake. Why?
Last time, my dad and I were in NYC we fell in love with Levain Bakery cookies. They will change your life. Just check out the Yelp reviews. 600 people have taken time out of their lives to write reviews about how good these cookies are. So when I got home I did some research to find a copycat recipe and decided to try it out as a special treat for the birthday feast. It went well. It's hard to go wrong with Ghiradelli chocolate morsels, sugar, and cocoa. The verdict is that they were good, but they weren't Levain Bakery good. Oh well, I'm heading to NYC in November to bite into the gooey center of the holy grail of cookies. Until then these bad boys will have to do.
Fold Butter and Sugar
Fold Flour, Eggs, Cocoa, and Baking Powder
Blend Ghirardelli chocolate morsels by hand
Bake for 16 minutes
Floating in ice cream, these cookies were superb, but to put ice cream on a real Levain Bakery cookie would be a sin.
