Croquets

Dorie says “These might win the prize for being the crunchiest cookies in the French canon.” I agree with Dorie that these are a nutty, crunchy and sweet cookie. A mere few ingredients blended to make these crunchy cookies that look like biscotti but are not. Egg whites, sugar and a little salt are blended…

Apple Cranberry Phyllo Turnovers

I was looking for recipes to use up some phyllo dough that I had leftover from another recipe and I came across this Ellie Krieger recipe from her Food Network show Healthy Appetite.

Smoky, Cheesy Cookies

The dough made in a food processor and chilled for 1-2 hours comes together easily. I made my galettes free form as I had no patience for…
