Daring Bakers July 2009 - Milano Cookies


Milano Cookies
Originally uploaded by watchjennybake.
The July Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Nicole at Sweet Tooth. She chose Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Cookies and Milan Cookies from pastry chef Gale Gand of the Food Network.

We had the choice to only make one of the cookies, and while I have all the ingredients and a shiny new kitchen scale to make vegetarian marshmallows, I didn't get around to it. I still plan to, hopefully in the next month. What else am I going to use xantham gum for? No really, tell me. I have a big bag of it. Hehe.

Putting them together
These cookies make me think of family vacations because my Mom would often have a bag of milano cookies in the car on trips to the beach, and we'd each get one as a treat on the road. They weren't hard to make, although it took a while to get the size right, and they are seriously addictive. If I hadn't brought them in to work to share, I'm sure they wouldn't have lasted any longer at home.

Lovely job as always, Jenny. Keeping it simple is sometimes the best route, and your 'simplicity' looks mouth watering and perfect!

I had actually never heard of milanos before this challenge - I think they must be an American thing. They sure look yummy though!
