The Secret to Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies? Shabbat!


I’m sure many of my fellow foodies and followers of R. Cookie Monster (aka the “Om-nom-nom Rebbe”) eagerly devoured David Leite’s recent article in the NYTimes about his quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

According to the insider tips he got from such experts as fellow M.O.T. Maury Rubin (owner of City Bakery, where you can get the best hot chocolate this side of Babette’s Feast), the key to really great chocolate chip cookies isn’t the chocolate (although that’s crucial, of course), or the dough, but allowing the dough to rest for at least 24 hours. That’s right, the key to great chocolate chip cookies is right there in Genesis 2:2!

So why not make yourself a glorious batch of Havdalah House Cookies(tm) this weekend? Make the dough on Friday afternoon, and then bake them Saturday night!! Earn extra eco-kosher points by using chocolate from the handy Jcarrot sustainable kosher chocolate list.

And now, according to another recent article, you can enjoy those cookies with a tall glass of giraffe’s milk, which Israeli rabbis have now declared kosher.

    Chào bạn, trước tiên, chúng tôi rất vui vì bạn đã tin tưởng và đặt câu hỏi cho chúng tôi. Để trả lời chính xác cho từng câu hỏi của bạn, đầu tiên chúng tôi sẽ nói sơ về nguyên nhân gây mụn trứng cá của bạn. Theo như thông tin bạn cung cấp thì da mặt của bạn là da mặt nhờn. Những người sở hữu làn da nhờn thường có xu hướng nổi mụn trứng cá nhiều hơn da thường. Nguyên nhân chủ yếu là do các chất bụi bẩn dễ bám vào và vi khuẩn thường dễ phát triển hơn. Do đó việc bạn thường bị mụn trứng cá là do làn da nhờn đem lại. Bạn chỉ cần thường xuyên vệ sinh sạch sẽ trên khuôn mặt của bạn là mụn trứng cá sẽ bớt đi rất nhiều, không cần phải uống bất kỳ một loại thuốc giải độc mát gan trị mụn nào cả.
