In this bake off, I baked 8 different Levain dark chocolate peanut butter cookie recipes in one day and tasted them alongside the original Levain, shipped in from New York!
We found a clear winner that looked almost identical to the original, but flavor-wise, I had two different favorites. The full breakdown, including the data analysis, will be live on my blog shortly!

In case you’re new here, in each bake off:
– I bake 9-12 different recipes in one day
– Samples of each get distributed to a team of 20-40 tasters
– Tasters rank each sample for flavor, texture and overall appeal
– We analyze the data and rank each cookie according to the scores!
