It hits all the right notes. It has rich chocolate enrobed in golden dough. It melts in your mouth. It has just the right consistency balance – not too crunchy and not too soft. Perfection.

Recently, after a particularly cold errand run in the city, my poor cheeks were red from exposure to the winter winds and I got home thinking all joy had been crushed by the deceptively light snow.

To go with all this sweetness, Au Revoir Simone is an irresistibly sweet band consisting of three talented ladies from Brooklyn. Like all their music, the song “Somebody Who” is amazingly darling and well performed. It just seems to fit these cookies perfectly, like icing on a cake.
Speaking of all this cold, what do you do to combat the winter doldrums? Is it a mug of hot cocoa, an enticing books, or maybe a bit of both? Let me know in the comments before you make a batch of these beauties.
