Today's featured feet represent extreme comfort in the form of Birkenstocks. Can you say ahhhh? Actually these are knock-off Birkies from Shoes for Crews, worn by a pastry chef who has worked Campagne, Macrina, and Flying Apron before landing with the greatest of ease at her current spot. Here's another hint: She likes Cheetos!
Thanks to chef Brittany for this recipe for sorta-savory cookies that go swell with a cheese plate or an ice cream that's not super-sweet.
