Believe in the Dough Balls

by Amanda

There’s a cookie in the blog world that has almost reached divine cookie status. It has got all the qualities of divinity: it’s elusive; it has people worshipping it; it sends one into ecstasy when one finally comes in to contact with it…

You know what I’m talking about.

Look closer.

Your eyes are not deceiving you. Those are indeed Annie the Baker’s cookies in my Chicago apartment. I have Danica to thank for that.

Believe the hype. These are the real deal. They tie for my favorite cookie with Mary’s Mountain Cookies in Breckenridge, CO, shown below.

Too bad I don’t live anywhere near Napa Valley or Breckenridge. Luckily, some really awesome bloggers have posted some great recipes inspired by Annie the Baker’s divine dough balls. Check them out!

Diana: Chocolate Chip Dough BallsToffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls, Butterscotch Oatmeal Dough Balls

And seriously, if you’re ever in Breckenridge, check out Mary’s Mountain Cookies. Write a recipe inspired by those cookies. And then send it to me. Please?

(Thanks again, Danica! :-))

Who do you think makes the best cookies? Another noteworthy contender for my cookie top spot is Levain Bakery in New York City.
