Sophisticated twists on old favorites are a hallmark of Jamie Cantor, the creative pastry chef behind Platine Cookies, a popular Los Angeles bakery. This collection of some of her most popular cookies highlights Cantor’s skill in melding the sweet and the savory in playful—and delicious—new ways.
Brown Butter/Dark Chocolate/Smoked Salt Cookies: A top seller thanks to the rich, nutty flavor of brown butter layered with Callebaut dark chocolate and a hint of smoked salt.
Maple Bacon Cookies: Each cookie is sweetened with real maple sugar and sprinkled with crisp bits of bacon—breakfast for dessert!
Kalamata Olive Dark Chocolate Cookies: A surprisingly tempting blend of dark chocolate and floral Kalamata olives in a lush vanilla bean dough.
Snacky Cookies: Another bestseller—vanilla bean dough spiked with pretzels, potato chips, dark chocolate and butterscotch chips—a snack mix and cookie in one.
