Chili cupcakes
These go well with chili, as the hint of spice in the cake is mellowed nicely by the sweet bourbon glaze. These are also simple in appearance, so they are a perfect palette for decorating with piped frostings and other decorations.

I remember a meal I had at a Michelin restaurant in the center of France where, at the very end of the meal, they brought a small tray to the table filled with chocolates, tiny lemony madeleines, and miniature cookies. The round chocolates spiked with almonds were so delicious that I tracked down a recipe for them and have made them ever since. I played around a bit with a traditional recipe for Rochers aux Amandes and came up with this rendition, which I call Chocolate Rocks. They couldn’t be easier to make, or more interesting to experiment with. Chocolate rocks are perfect for hiding things inside. A raisin. A hazelnut. Dried cherries or cranberries. Minced orange peel. Before you put the rocks in the refrigerator, you could sprinkle them with fleur de sel. Or roll them in grated coconut. Cinnamon dust. Star dust. Whatever you have. They are elegant enough for any dinner party. And just one goes very nicely on the saucer beside your coffee.

I have to tell you that I have never had much of a”thing” for meringues.  Light and airy, with not much too them, why not go for a richer cookie if I were going to the sweet treat route.  Well, this past holiday, my taste-buds shed a new light on my.  I tried my mother in laws traditional meringues and was not only enjoying them, but REALLY enjoying them!  This cloud like cookie turned into something way more appealing, and after 3 or 4 my sweet tooth was totally satisfied. Lo and behold, I had a whole new respect for Meringues!  I decided to take a whirl at my own, adding 2 kinds of chocolate to give it some pizazz and let me tell you how much fun I had watching the egg whites rise and peak.  This will definitely not be a holiday recipe in my house…it’s way too good!

Momofuku Milk Bar
An ode to my favorite baked good of all time, the fudgy brownie, this cookie has a healthy salt content and, to me, is perfection. I freeze a few of these in the dense heat of a New York summer for my lunch or afternoon snack.
