Daring Bakers: Milan Cookies

The July Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Nicole at Sweet Tooth. She chose Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Cookies and Milan Cookies from pastry chef Gale Gand of the Food Network.

This month, I opted for the Milan Cookies. I have made marshmallows before. It was fun then, but I have since stopped eating gelatin (did you know that several yogurt brands have gelatin? Sometimes it sucks to read those labels). Of course, I probably should have made the Marshmallow Cookies simply to ensure I wouldn't eat them.

Final product:

I opted to use the half-can of frosting that had been sitting in my fridge for the filling, rather than the chocolate ganache. I could act virtuous and say I did it to save time, money, and my waistline (since I'm not a fan of canned frosting, but I am a fan of ganache), but I'll be honest and say it's because I was lazy.

Stay tuned to tomorrow's post. I've started my next knitting project.


  1. In my mind I totally ate half that plate of cookies.

    OK, I ate all of them.

  2. Memories of eating frosting straight from the can when I was a kid! I would definitely devour those! BTW, love your 'cast of characters'..gave me a chuckle :)
