"Corked" Breton Galettes

Tuesdays with Dorie

I voted for this cookie as I knew my jam loving, sweet husband would enjoy them. Galettes are a plain butter cookie.

My first batch I baked the recommended time of 18 minutes and I think I over baked them. I used a wooden dowel about the size of a cork and my jam loving husband requested more jam on the next batch. I decreased my bake time to 15 minutes and increase the size of my indentation for more jam. This did the trick and I got thumbs up on the second batch.

    The jam-cookie ratio is a highly personal matter! Glad these got the thumbs up. They were a dream to work with, weren't they?

    These were easy, weren't they. Making them again later – with chocolate in the middle. Yours look just perfect.

    Oh my word these were so good…Corked Bretons, who knew…I can't be making these too often as I can so easily talk myself into more than one or two. Dangerously delicious! Yours look so nice all arranged on the plate like that.
