My girlfriend is an award-winning cookie baker!

My girlfriend, Bryony DuPont (PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon) just won a holiday cookie recipe contest! Michael Ruhlman is a fairly well-known cooking author (he’s from Cleveland!), and he held the contest through his website.

I love these cookies: super spicy ginger molasses. They’re great for the holidays, but also pretty much any other time.
