Last week Deb from Smitten Kitchen posted a picture of these black and white cookies which reminded me that I've always wanted to make them. Soft lemony pillowy cake-like cookies with vanilla and chocolate frosting on top.
The cookie recipe that I finally settled on is soft and chewy. Slightly sweet with lots of melty chocolate, crunchy pecans, and a sprinkle of Maldon salt to tie it all together. The most delicious parts of this recipe, in no particular order, are the 1) brown butter 2) maple sugar 3) dark chocolate 4) pecans and 5) Maldon salt.
