Dorie’s Cookies

This is a catch-up week for me in which I have combined three baking assignments into one. I encountered bakers burn-out just before Christmas so I have missed the last couple of posts but I am up and running now with burners full blaze.

First up Olive Oil and Wine cookies from Baking Chez Moi (page 315). Dorie says these are from the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the south of France, a non-butter region. The cookies are usually made with Muscat de Rivesaltes but I just used what white wine I had on hand. It is an unusual dough that Dorie calls sponge-like. I thought they were a little tricky to roll and keep the dough together. Dorie says they are great with coffee or tea and great for dunking.

Next up World Peace Cookies from Dorie’s Cookies (page 335). I had previously made these from Baking From My Home to Yours, my notes state they were great and they still are, of course I made a new batch.

And finally Breakfast Biscotti from Dorie’s Cookies (page 98). I had previoulsy made these for Cookies and Kindness and you can see my original post here.

Tuesdays with Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Dorie’s cookbooks. To see what others made this week head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

    I have never heard about these cookies but they turned out quite special. Like what you said about the chocolate glaze.

    I know what you mean about post-holidays baker's burn out! It doesn't last long, though, does it? All three of your selections look wonderful and I love how you presented the cookies you brought to work.


  18. Lovely cookies! I have yet to make the olive oil and wine cookies!
