Why These Extra Chewy Sugar Cookies Make Us Want to Break Out in Song

  Why These Extra Chewy Sugar Cookies Make Us Want to Break Out in Song As Food52 gets older (and wiser), and our archive of recipes grows, we’re making the effort to revisit some good-as-gold recipes. Today, we're celebrating our community's chewiest sugar cookies with a brand-new video. I’ve never understood sugar cookies. Chocolate chip? Snickerdoodle? Peanut butter? Yes, yes, yes. But sugar cookies are plain Janes. They don’t have gooey chunks or gorgeous crackles. Sure, the packaged slice-and-bakes can have cute seasonal designs, but fun doesn’t necessarily translate into flavorful. Okay—before you rush to the sweet little cookie’s defense, know that I’ve changed my tune! Turns out I just hadn’t met the right sugar for my sugar cookies. The Search is Over: This Map Will Find Your Sugar Cookie by Sarah Jampel Perfect Cookie Nonstick Baking Mat (Set of 2) Back in 2010, community member WinnieAb and her daughter Maddie shared a recipe that calls for one whole cup of deep, dark brown sugar. The result: a distinct brown buttery taste and oh-so-tender texture. I could eat ten of them in the blink of an eye. The two perfected their recipe with lots of pre-bake taste tests (women after my own heart) and submitted their hard work to our Best Chewy Sugar Cookie contest. “We always sample the dough as we go, adding a little more sugar or vanilla (or something else), if needed,” WinnieAb writes. “Because if the dough doesn't taste good, the cookies certainly won't.

I adored the first 2 Baked cookbooks and didn’t realize there was a 3rd out. Score! I’ve been using the Joy The Baker cookbook and several of Nigella’s older books a lot lately. I would love to add the Flour and Bouchon cookbooks to my collection .

The 5-Minute Prep Trick This Award-Winning Baker Swears By

  The 5-Minute Prep Trick This Award-Winning Baker Swears By I swear by lining pan bottoms with parchment, but cutting a parchment circle every time I bake a cake somehow breaks my flow—and litters the counter with scraps. I refuse to pay too much for precut circles (a pack of 24 circles at 20 cents apiece?!) or buy too many (1000 at a time), even at a great price. So I cut circles from full rolls of parchment—which I definitely do purchase by the thousand (and maybe you should, too!). The Big Secret About Parchment Paper by Alice Medrich 5 Handy Facts About Baking with Parchment Paper by Alice Medrich To avoid the irritation of cutting a circle every single time I bake, I occasionally cut a small stack of sheets both 8 and 9-inches in diameter—my most used sizes. Rather than annoyed, this makes me feel efficient. I keep them in an empty cake pan in a drawer—but if you could file them if you have a kitchen file drawer, or put them in a manila envelope, or on a clipboard (so you can hang them inside a cupboard or pantry door). Then, all you need to do is simply reach for one when needed. To cut circles, stack a few sheets of parchment (on a cutting board if necessary) and set a pan on top. Either run a utility knife around the pan, cutting through the sheets, or draw around the pan with a pencil and use a pair of scissors to cut out the rounds. Get Here Faster A couple of minutes spent doing this every now and then for your main cake sizes lets you jump right into the fun part of baking.

With all that kitchen gear to work with, you'll need a few things to cook , too, so don't forget to add a few cookbooks to your registry alongside those pots and pans. We've compiled a list of amazing cookbooks you'll be happy to have in your collection

If summer was a cake


how to participate

If you're new to the Baking Club, here's a quick primer on how to join in the fun:

1) Get the Book(s)

Buy a book or two—either online or from your favorite local bookstore. Or, if you’re not ready to commit quite yet, check them out from your local library or borrow a copy from a friend.

2) Read & Cook

Rather self-explanatory, as this is one of the most important parts of participating in a cookbook club, right? If you’re not sure where to begin, take a page from Assistant Editor (and regular cookbook reader) Katie Macdonald's playbook: she recommends reading through the entire introduction as well as 15 headnotes and recipes to get a feel for the cookbook, and then ideally, cooking at least three recipes.

3) Share Your Opinions

We chat in our Facebook group all month long! Join the Baking Club here and post pictures of what you bake from the books and share reviews, too. Fill everyone in on what you thought of the dish (remember to share the recipe name and even the page number, if possible). You can share photos on Instagram as well, just remember to tag them with #f52bakingclub.

Cobbler Meets Cake in This Peachy, Mascarpone-y Beaut .
When you write about food, you’re never in the right season. I’m regularly baking up fall pies in July, and scouring the markets in vain for rhubarb in January. Sometimes I’m pumpkin spiced out long before October begins. There are no words to describe how much I love what I do, but the off-seasonality can really take a toll on me—like last year, when I’d made four Thanksgiving dinner spreads before it was time to help my own family with our table. 200 Recipes and 1000 Photos Later, The Fearless Baker Is Born by Erin McDowell I feel an even worse kind of anguish when I have an idea just a minute too late, because there’s nothing worse than a brilliant Christmas cookie that you dream up just as everyone begins their New Year’s diets. Such was the case with the recipe I’m sharing today. Last year, over Labor Day weekend, I threw together a quick fruit cobbler to bid farewell to summer and all its bounty. It was supremely delicious, but the casserole dish wasn’t befitting of how grand the rest of our shindig was. I started planning a way to gussy up the humble cobbler, asking myself the question: How do I turn this into a showstopper, and still keep all the most delicious things about it? For once, the off-seasonality was in my favor, because I had until next summer to figure it out. I tackled it one section at a time.
