Listen. I am a diehard chocolate lover. Chocolate chip cookies are my thing and I rarely stray. Except for these beautiful little sweet/tart pillowy cookies that have my heart forever and always.

They are SO DANG GOOD. And you should go right ahead and make them right now. After all, we are – every last one of us – in the throws of our quarantine baking marathons and I’m here to help you out.


A few weeks ago, Todd was heading out to his weekly men’s bible study group and had to take a side dish. They were grilling all the meats or some such shenanigans and all the guys were asked to bring along something to go with. When Todd ended up having to work right up until time to leave for his group, I offered to throw something together.

This is the dish that happened. I may have gotten lots of text messages and IG dings throughout their evening singing it’s praises and requests the next day for the recipe.


Emily and I both do a LOT of baking for friends and neighbors and co-workers and family around the holidays. We are both inundated with pie and cookie and cake requests and we try our best to oblige everyone. I get buried under pies and Emily gets buried under this cake. YOU GUYS, THIS PUMPKIN ROLL CAKE is everyyyyyything. She is famous for it around these parts and people go absolutely bonkers nuts if they miss her cutoff for holiday orders.
