Theirs vs. Mine: Buttermilk Cookies

The January issue of Gourmet magazine has been sitting on my counter for weeks. More accurately, the recipe for buttermilk cookies has been on my counter for weeks. They just looked so simple and charming, I knew I'd have to make them some day. Well, thankfully that day finally arrived. The cookies, which are inspired by Edna Lewis, have a slight lemon taste to them and are coated with a simple vanilla glaze. When I made my batch, I coated some in vanilla glaze and some in chocolate. These cookies were spongy and delicious, and they're definitely working their way into my regular cookie repertoire. To check out the recipe for yourself,

I made these a few weeks ago and blogged about them as well. I thought they were awesome and everyone who tried them dubbed them as the bset cookies I had made to date. I definite keeper! I will have to try them with the chocolate glaze next time.

Actually I think this is the same base cookie that is used for those NYC black and white cookies, except for those you turn them upside down so you frost the flat side. I've made them and they are delicious!

Those do look fluffy and delicious! Almost more like cake. The photos are so stunning, I want to eat some right now even though I'm not a huge buttermilk fan.

My husband bought this magazine back in December, and we have made no less than 10 batches of these since. They are absolutely delicious and are now my favorite cookie. We leave the lemon zest out, though, since I don't really care for lemon.
