Like many good things, cookies were a mistake. Let us set the scene: the ‘30s, the Toll House Inn. Ruth Wakefield, the owner, has finished the powdered cocoa used to bake butter biscuits for her guests. A snap decision: she crushes a chocolate bar and adds it to the dough. Surely it will melt. But it did not. And so the most famous cookie in the States was born. Not exactly a light snack, but who are we to complain?

Continue until you obtain a smooth cream (4). Make your life easier by resting the bowl on a damp cloth so it does not slip away while you mix. Gradually add two lightly whisked eggs (5) and mix well until you have poured in all the eggs (6).

Add the chocolate chips (10) so that they spread evenly. With an ice cream scoop (or a simple spoon) scoop out some dough, then use your hands to create round spheres of 50 g each (11). Place on a drip or baking pan covered with baking parchment (12).

We decided to place eight, evenly spaced spheres (13) on a baking pan to ensure they do not merge during baking. The listed ingredients will yield approximately 20 cookies. Before baking, place the cookies in the fridge for approximately 1 hour to ensure they keep their shape when in the oven. Preheat the oven at 160 °C; place the tray in the middle of the oven and bake for around 35 to 40 minutes. They will be ready when crispy on the outside and soft on the inside (14). Place the cookies on a cooling grid (15). As soon as they are cool to the touch your cookies will be ready for eating! 


Keep your cookies in a tin box for up to 3 to 4 days. Cookies Policy

Braies Lake: going beyond the hype

Hotel Lago di Braies is a historical building dating back to the end of the 19th century and, to this very day, contributes to the charm of these azure waters. The lake mirrors the Dolomites’ peaks, and its charm goes beyond the hype behind the location. The hotel aims to open up in a renewed shape: it wants to defend is glorious and historic past as well as proudly living in our modern day and age. We are working on this fascinating project by designing the new logo, developing the corporate identity and the hotel’s website, and by providing a clear strategy.

Over the last few years, Braies Lake has been on everyone’s lips. This notoriety has caused problems for the location’s identity. Hotel Lago di Braies wanted to preserve this evanescent authenticity and, therefore, felt the need to reposition the infrastructure, starting with its logo right through to its corporate identity. What we have done is rationalise the sign and all its applications by implementing a containment strategy to stop this relentless dispersal. We cleaned up and renewed everything with one aim: giving the right impuls(e) for the renewals which will be carried out during this year and the following ones.

The applications

We are currently studying and developing the hotel’s new website, which will be launched next spring, during what we hope will be the start of a more sustainable and regular type of tourism on the shores of the lake.
