A Cookie Medley To Help Pass the Bar: Part 2

You may remember my friend Brooke, who is studying for the bar, from this post.  Well, the bar is coming ever closer, so I decided it was time for another package of goodies.  Brooke is a major chocolate chip cookie lover (who isn't, really?) and she made a special request for chocolate chip cookies. 

However, I could not just send her one kind of cookie, so this package is about 50% Dorie's chocolate chip cookies (which I already made and blogged about here) and 50% other stuff.  The cookie on the left of the picture is the Baked Peanut Butter Cookie with Milk Chocolate Chunks.  The recipe specifically says not to substitute semi-sweet, but I didn't have anything else on hand, so I did it anyway.  I thought they still turned out delicious, but I can't wait to try them with milk chocolate.  These are not your typical peanut butter cookies.  They are much thinner than I expected (which might be because I didn't chill the dough long enough) but they are soft and chewy, so I give them a thumbs up.  You can find the recipe here.

The other cookies I made (on the right of the photo) were Dorie's Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops.  I had some Whoppers in my cabinet and I just decided to go for it, even though I don't know how Brooke feels about Whoppers.  When I ate one of these cookies right out of the oven, I didn't like it that much, but once they cooled to room temperature, I really liked them.  It gave the flavors a chance to meld and mellow and you were not overwhelmed with malt flavor.  They were also good frozen.  You can find the recipe here.

I ran out of tupperwear when packing the cookies to ship them to Brooke, so I packed some of the cookies in plastic bags.  I assume that means she will get some tasty cookie crumbs, instead of whole cookies, but I think they will be good anyway.  Brooke, let us know what you thought of the cookies.  Others, wish Brooke good luck on the bar!


  1. I am so excited. I have never actually had a whopper so I have no idea what I am in for.

  2. I cannot thank Rebecca enough for this care package (and its predecessor). The treats have definitely made me more pleasant to be around during this experience (and slightly rounder as well). THANKS!
