A Cookie Bakes in Brooklyn Cakes, Pies, Muffins, and Memories By Margaret Palca, By (photographer) Michael Harlan Turkell
There is new hipster Brooklyn; then there is old-school, really hipster Brooklyn. Brooklyn-based bakery Margaret Palca Bakes falls into the latter category. Currently located on Columbia Street in Brooklyn, Margaret Palca Bakes has been sharing its owner’s dessert wonders (yes eggs; yes sugar; yes butter!) with the New York City community for the past twenty years. A Cookie Bakes in Brooklyn tells the story of Margaret's journey into the world of baking in one of New York City’s most dynamic boroughs.

In her debut cookbook, Margaret shares practical tips, techniques, and more than eighty recipes collected over her sixty years of baking, tasting, eating, and selling. A Cookie Bakes in Brooklyn tells the story of her entire professional culinary career (even before she knew what a career was). Some of these recipes are her take on old favorites; some have been created to please the current taste in sweets. Sample some sweet treats from Margaret’s recipe index:

  • Sour cream coffee cake
  • Apple crumb squares
  • Chocolate babka
  • Whoopie pies
  • Vegan maple pecan cookies
  • And more!
