Looking for a particular sugar cookie
Hey folks, I have something of an odd request.
I'm a big fan of Remo Borracchini's Italian bakery/deli in south Seattle. I get over there as often as I can. The problem is that I live in north Seattle. I don't know how many folks have tried to get from north to south or vice versa in Seattle...it isn't entertaining. As a result I wind up at Borracchini's maybe once a year.
They have amazing sugar cookies there. They're chewy and light, almost fluffy and cake-like, yet still undoubtedly a cookie. They taste like they have a bit of almond extract, almost, and maybe a little citrus even. It's very difficult to describe these cookies without actually having one. I've looked here for something similar and I've tried to get something out of google, but all I get are news articles since they were in the news not terribly long ago. I guess my search skills are failing me.
Does anyone have any idea about how to go about making these? I've played with recipes trying to get it and I've never even come close. I know this is a real stretch to post here, but if I could make something like these cookies for my wife she'd be thrilled. If you have any idea how to make something that sounds similar to this, I'd love to see it!
