Let the stars be your guide to baking seductively indulgent cookies. The look, feel and taste of the following treats from BakeSpace members are matched to each astrological sign.
Cashew White Chocolate Cookies: Taurus is addicted to sensual delights. With a mix of crunchy, chewy richness, this cookie is a veritable Taurean heaven.
Chewy Gingersnap Cookies: The ginger in these cookies captures the “zip” associated with gemini. They’re also perfect for a cup of tea, one of Gemini’s favorite pastimes.
My Mother’s Amaretti: Cancer is addicted to family heirlooms. As this recipe is handed down from generation to generation, it captures Cancer’s love of home, family, mom and sweet cookies.
Krazy Kahlua Koffee Kookies: Leo loves giving opulent (and sometimes off-the-wall) gifts that celebrate the glory of romance, and these cookies are a perfect example.
Simple but Perfect Shortbread: These cookies are definitely harmonious with the ever practical and perfectionist Virgo.
Café Latte Carmamello Biscotti: Biscotti, for me, has a simple and timeless elegance. This luscious recipe embodies the elegance and sophistication of Libra.
Killer Dark Chocolate Thins: Scorpios are known to walk on the dark side and lend an edge to whatever they touch. So we should expect no less from this killer dark chocolate. It’s sweet death for the lips.
Melomakarona (Greek Honey Cookies): Not only do these cookies have an “international” flavor, which is very Sagittarian — they also pay homage to the sweetness of Jupiter, the planetary ruler of Sagittarius and, incidentally, honey.
Triple Threat Chocolate Chip Cookies: This is a great recipe modified for life up in the clouds. Capricorn is all about rising to the top, and these cookies are no exception.
Surprise Cookies: As an air sign, Aquarius likes to keep things fresh, with plenty of surprises! The gooeyness of these cookies is the surprise — just like the softer side of the intensely private Aquarius, which you only get to see once you know them.
Cookie Crack: Pisceans love anything that can catapult them into the stratosphere of ecstasy. As a strongly emotional sign, however, they have to be careful that their love of ecstasy doesn’t become an addiction. As this recipe is even called “crack,” Pisceans better watch out!
