*Or, Reasons I Need A Waffle-Maker
Well we didn't get to ring in a new year with world peace, but I did make these buttery, chocolatey morsels that are so, so good. I didn't do much tinkering with Dorie Greenspan's world peace cookie recipe - it's Dorie Greenspan, after all - just made some adjustments based on what I had on hand. And it was a perfect way to break in my new KitchenAid stand mixer!
Last weekend was Labor Day, and the City totally emptied out. At first I was a little wistful we hadn't made plans to go anywhere, but it turns out we didn't have to leave the confines of the urban jungle to find a little breathing room and some natural respite.
What I'm saying is, the nice thing about staying home when everyone else goes on vacay, is that you get the best spots of the City to yourself. Which for us, meant a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
