Can you smell all the holiday cookies baking in the Test Kitchen?

December 3, 2010 |  9:33 am

It''s been all about cookies in the L.A. Times Test Kitchen. We've been testing our 10 favorite recipes submitted to our first ever Holiday Cooke Bake-Off, and photographing them.

Here's a quick breakdown of some of the ingredients we went through just this week as we made more than 50 dozen cookies:

  • 17 1/2 sticks (more than 4 pounds) of butter
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 26 cups (almost 7 pounds) of flour
  • 2 1/2 pounds of sugar
  • Almost 1 1/2 pounds of powdered sugar
  • More than 1 pound of cream cheese

Stay tuned for the recipes. Our bake-off favorites are scheduled to be posted online Dec. 15 and in the Food section on Dec. 16.  Cheers!
