Nora Ephron’s favorite Tom Douglas recipe


The late Nora Ephron.

Monday is the late Nora Ephron’s birthday. Most locals know her from “Sleepless in Seattle,”  but true Ephron fans know she’s more than just a chick-flick director and screenwriter. Of her many talents, she was also a great cook and party host.
In her honor, we’re posting her favorite party dip, which happens to be the crab recipe of Seattle’s Tom Douglas.

Nora Ephron’s favorite cookie comes from Seattle

ephronpic28The great Nora Ephron passed away last year today. I like to think that she’s looking over us, with that toothy, mischievous grin of hers, doing a happy dance as she leaves peanut butter cookie crumbs.

Seattleites remember Ephron for “Sleepless in Seattle.” But Ephron remembered Seattle mostly for The Dahlia Bakery’s peanut butter sandwich cookies. As she put it in the Dahlia Bakery cookbook, “This may be the greatest cookie ever ever ever.”  In honor of Ephron, playwright, journalist and director, that beloved cookie recipe is reprinted below.
