Pandan Pistachio White Chocolate Chip Cookies (Video) Recipe

No one can argue with the fact that American cookies are the best. When I lived in Paris and came to the US, I kept bringing a ton of American cookies home to my friends and relatives. My childhood friend Alexia, who came to visit us this month, came home with 8 dozen of American cookies to gift to her relatives!

Cookies are always a nice treat no matter the age of the cookie monster or the occasion being celebrated. Several years, I came up with this new recipe for homemade cookies with an exotic twist  (pandan extract) for a change and they've become my signature cookies for special occasions. Follow the instructions from this video and you'll have our family's favorite French-Asian fusion cookies.

Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Recipe

I haven't been active for the past week on PhamFatale.com. We've spent a crazy holiday season, baking a ton! Here's one of the many chocolate chip cookie versions we made during the week. We used chocolate we received over Christmas, so these feature M&Ms and chunks of coarsely chopped Godiva salted caramel milk chocolate bars.

The secret to perfect texture for this timeless classic is to closely watch the baking time. Don't over-bake them but also don't under-cook them or you'll end up with just cookie dough! Happy baking!

Pandan Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Recipe

Pandan cookies always intrigue the guests who come to our house. The green color from the pandan paste makes the cookies very original, and after the first bite, our guests are amazed at how great they taste. Daddy's friend, who lives in Minnesota, loved them so much that I decided to send a basket of two dozen cookies to him as a care package.

When I was a child, Maman would use pandan leaves to flavor steamed jasmine rice. It's also used in many Vietnamese desserts, such a rau câu. That inspired me to try using pandan in Western dessert recipes.

I often fuse the ingredients of one cooking tradition with the recipes of another. It’s a great way to create new dishes. In fact, the very first recipe posted on PhamFatale.com was for pandan cookies. In that recipe, I used pistachios and white chocolate chips. Both are great, but I think the cocoa in semi-sweet chocolate pairs especially well with pandan. Changing ingredients and coming up with new dishes is a big part of the culinary journey I've been sharing with you for a year and a half. After all, that's what cooking is all about. The history of cooking is really the history of the migration of people from one place to another. As they traveled, they adopted and adapted the local cuisine, creating many of the classic dishes we enjoy today. I hope you enjoy my small contribution to this tradition.

Kumquat and Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Chocolate chip cookies are so classic that one might ask, why mess with perfection? Well, I think my kumquat and chocolate chip cookies are the answer to that question. Citrus and chocolate are a great pair in desserts, and this is no exception. The zing of the rind really enhances the creamy quality of the chocolate.

I decided on kumquat preserves because I still had one jar leftover from last season (I'm making more today!). For the cookie dough, I mixed butter, brown sugar, finely chopped fresh kumquat zest and whole wheat flour for texture and a little nutrition. It provides a nice canvas for the morsels of chocolates and chunks of preserved kumquats.

If you're still skeptical that kumquats can enhance the flavor of chocolate chip cookies, there's really only one solution; make them yourself! You won't be disappointed.

Rose and Strawberry Malt Cookies Recipe

Rose and Strawberry Malt Cookies are inspired by Dorie Greenspan's amazing cookbook, Baking: From My Home To Yours. When I cook, I like to find inspirations in all sorts of places. Dorie Greespan's original cookie recipe is Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops. I made some green pandan cookies a few weeks back and I thought that I could experiment and add rose paste and strawberry extracts to the the malt ball candies.

I discovered Dorie Greenspan through Pierre Herme's work. She wrote his cookbook, Dessert by Pierre Herme. I'm a big fan of Pierre Herme, he's the Master when it comes to patisserie (baking). If you get a chance to stop by one of his stores in Paris, I highly recommend that you do and enjoy a French macaron. Oh I miss Paris...
