While I'm in Alaska for the arrival of my sister's sixth baby boy - yes SIX...they now have a sub for a basketball team - we all had the craving for the famous thick and fudgy Baltimore Berger Cookies!  

My sister and I searched the web and decided to try King Arthur Flour's Berger Cookie recipe.   

I whipped these cookies up for my sister and the family and they turned out great!  We all loved them.  The cookies are pretty darn close to the original. If you've never had a Berger cookie, you would never know the difference.  I used the original copycat version shared on King Arthur Flour's website.  The cookie portion is a great copycat. The chocolate icing is a little more rich than the original, but the texture is perfect. Overall, it's a great copycat for one of my favorite cookies.  I can't wait to make these for my family and friends back in Ohio.

Definitely stick with King Arthur flour, all. It is the best! It won the taste test on America's Test Kitchen (Cook's Country). You can taste the difference.

There is a bakery in Troy, NY called the Cookie Factory and they make the same cookies and they are called Fudge Fancies, they also make a miniature version which is bite size. They are selfish.

Has anyone ever frozen them? I was thinking about doing these for a baking exchange.
