Southern Sartorialist's Cookies

I had the pure pleasure of meeting Libbie Summers a couple weeks ago. Libbie is the co-creator of the Salted & Styled blog, along with Chia Chong (who also takes the most gorgeous pics, as featured here). Libbie is a stylish, adorable and most talented baker based in Savannah, Georgia. I love her work, particularly the gorgeous photos and videos you can find on her site- like this one, showcasing her Southern Sartorialist Cookie just for dudes. Take a gander then c'mon back...

Libbie is the author of Sweet & Vicious - baking with Attitude (Rizzoli, 2014), a book whose prose, photography and recipes are equally sublime. When I picked up a copy, I was easily smitten with her cookie recipe just for men. When Libbie informed me there was also a video for this cookie, where she gathered dapper, southern men under an old oak tree covered with Spanish moss to serve them cookies and bourbon, I was hoping I could be her best friend forever. How deliciously perfect...

Libbie, "These men are just a few of the very creative and stylish men who thread through my life. All with a special talent for words or design or art and all have a certain flair about them when it comes to style." 

This is an oatmeal cookie that's more smoky and salty rather than sweet. Libbie, "The bourbon adds that little oaky flavor that drives it all home and makes it very special." She recommends a glass of bourbon or milk to complement this tasty, manly treat.

Oh how I love a fashionable man. For the one in your life, may I suggest two dozen Southern Sartorialist's Cookies and a bottle of bourbon. Find Libbie's picture perfect recipe, here. Thank you Libbie and all you dapper dudes out there who make Manly Monday so scrumptiously fun...
