So, here’s the situation. I contacted my pals at Cafe Appliances to ask if they might furnish appliances for our soon-to-be new home before we had found it. Last spring, I collaborated with Cafe Appliances and was featured in a series of video advertisements on their website (you can view a snippet here!).

And the more I fiddled with their ovens, refrigerators, and dishwashers, the more obsessed I became with them. Cafe Appliances are the ideal blend of current technology and classic design, with customisable finishes (you may choose the finish of both your appliance and its hardware) and a sleek, minimalist appearance.

So meet my new kitchen and the Cafe Appliances, which are a fantastic match for our area. The 36″ CaféTM ENERGY STAR® French-Door Refrigerator, the CaféTM Smart Stainless Steel Interior Dishwasher, and the CaféTM 30′′ Double-Oven Range were among the items I received.

Cafe Appliances are not only attractive, but they were designed with the contemporary chef in mind. For example, I can preheat my oven from my bedroom using Wifi technology. Similarly, whether I’m in the same room or 100 miles away, I can run my dishwasher remotely.

And don’t forget about the refrigerator, you guys! They went all out with this refrigerator. The crisper drawers feature LED lights throughout, so I don’t have to open them all the way to see what’s inside. It also includes an inside water dispenser, which allows me to have clear sightlines in my kitchen. The bottom freezer is tall and deep, allowing me to store handmade ice cream, frozen veggies, and, of course, ICE BOX COOKIES!!!

Now that I’m in quarantine, I’ve started baking for my friends and family. I’m talking banana bread, brownies, and babkas, to name a few. You guys, the WORKS. The whole shebang. Homemade baked products have a healthy and comforting quality to them. Even if we’re geographically apart, I’ve discovered that baking for my loved ones makes them (and me!) really happy. 

What is the most important thing I’ve done for people? Cookies. They’re simple, tasty, and sure to please. These Ice Box Cookies are no exception.

What are Ice Box Cookies, and how do you make them?

Let’s get down to business with these chocolate chip icebox cookies. Icebox cookies (also known as refrigerator cookies) are slice-and-bake cookies that can be stored in your refrigerator or freezer (previously known as a “icebox”). I usually have a log of cookie dough in my freezer in case of an emergency. You know, like an unexpected visit, a midnight snack, or a horrible day. That way, I can eat cookies whenever I want. Furthermore, slice and bake cookies enable you to prepare only a few cookies rather than a large quantity that you won’t be able to finish.

Ingredients

  • a third of a cup of all-purpose flour
  • 12 teaspoon powdered baking soda
  • a quarter teaspoon of salt
  • 34 cup room temperature unsalted butter
  • 12 cup sugar (brown)
  • 14 cup sugar, granulated
  • 2 beaten egg yolks
  • vanilla extract (two tablespoons)
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped bittersweet chocolate

Instructions

  1. Combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat until light and fluffy, approximately 2 minutes. Scrape the bowl clean.
  2. Beat in the egg yolks and vanilla essence until well combined.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate basin. To blend, stir everything together.
  4. Combine the dry and wet ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth and no flour streaks remain. Add the chopped chocolate last.
  5. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a 12-inch diameter cylindrical log. Place in the freezer for at least one hour after wrapping with plastic wrap (or freeze for up to 3 months).
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper when ready to bake. Slice 14 inch thick cookies with a very very thin knife. Slice off as many as you need for the time being, then rewrap and return the rest of the dough to the freezer. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and firm. Allow it cool before drinking a glass of milk with it.
