Getting Creative with Cookies

Lately, food photography has been all the rage in my Boston apartment. After finding some a-maz-ing recipes on Baking Bites for homemade Girl Scout Cookies, my roommate/fellow designer Sarah and I decided to embark on a project, documenting my attempts of the recipes, one by one. At least one day of every weekend is spent in the kitchen, where I beat together ingredients and she stands over me shooting. She is blogging the photos on her website, Sarah Hearts Design, and above you can get a glimpse of how GREAT the Caramel De-Lites came out (yes, I am not above bragging here). So, you can check back at SarahHearts Design every Monday to see photos of Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties (Tagalongs), and so on. They only get better.

In the meantime, I just want to share with you my love for the images we are drawing inspiration from. When it comes to food photography, Real Simple Magazine and Martha Stewart are head and shoulders above the rest. I own Martha Stewart Cookies, which has the best table of contents of any book, ever. And I had to exert some serious restraint to avoid purchasing Martha Stewart Wedding Cakes the other day in Borders, simply because the pictures were so fantastic. I can almost taste those meringues through the screen! ••••

Those cookies came out so much better than our other attempt at coconut cookies! They look delicious!
