Having grown up with a Southern mother in the midwest, I fancy myself as a bit of a cookie snob. There truly is an art in finding the right balance of sugar, brown sugar, and salted butter required to make the Holiday Cookie dough. I am therefore excited about the Cookie-Smackdown as we take down those grass-groping Berkeley-ites (with love of course :)). We need 3 more cooks, so please email Eunji to participate! AND…don’t forget to RSVP for the Holiday party THIS FRIDAY FROM 7-10!! Hub members use discount code hub2010holiday.
