Comments: Cookie Monster!!!


That Barrett guy sounds pretty smart. I suppose he must have been since he married you.

Cranberry oatmeal cookies are the best.

Coupla things. First, this recipe sounds awesome (did someone say Kahlua?). Second, I have yet to purchase a silpat liner. I see one in your photo. What do you all think of them? My sister-in-law, also a food and cooking junkie, does not care for hers, could live without it.

Do I purchase? Or not? To own or not to own, that is the question.....


We received our silpat as a wedding gift from Meg (in Paris) a couple years back. It took me a while to get used to it, but I really like it now. Here are a few thoughts:

1. It holds the heat a little longer than a pan. I usually pull the cookies out just a bit earlier than I would with a regular baking sheet.
2. It doesn't crisp the bottom of the cookie the same as a pan does. I think that's a good thing.
3. It makes the cookies easy to slide off the sheet. (I hate making cookies that are next to impossible to remove from the baking sheet).
4. It's super easy to clean!! (You might notice that you almost never read about Barrett cleaning-up, there might be something to that). :)

We actually have two. I use one baking sheet and alternate silpats as part of the staging process. I also use a pair of tongs because once it's been in the oven, the silpat really is quite hot.

I love chocolate and oatmeal together. I also love chocolate and cranberry together. Have you considered combining the two??

(insert your own reference to those Reese's PB cups ads here)

Did someone say "Reese's Peanut Butter Cups"?

(recipe for oat-choc-chip or oat-cran or oat-choc-and-cran cookies bookmarked. thanks.)

Does anyone have a recipe for Starbucks' ginger molasses cookies? They apparently have stopped selling them, and I am going through withdrawl symptoms - they are the GREATEST! If anyone has the recipe, please email me at Thank you!
