Vanilla Polka Dots

When I saw these Vanilla Polka Dots come up for nomination on Tuesdays with Dorie, I knew I needed to start hunting for pearl sugar. This group made another recipe with pearl sugar but I forgot which recipe and I was unable to find it. This time I was determined to get the right ingredient….

Sesame-Sea Salt Cookies

From the cocktail cookies section, this cookie has it all. A little bit sweet from the sugar, a little rich from the butter and almond flour and a little crunch from the sesame seeds. There is something for everyone in this cookie. To see what other’s thought head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

Chocolate-Oatmeal Biscoff Cookies

Tuesdays with Dorie Dorie’s Cookies Armed with my jar of Biscoff, I happily made these cookies. I used my 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop which Dorie states is a medium scoop. I did not want to make 50 one teaspoon cookies. Also, I did not want to roll these into balls, just to squash them…

Good Better Best Cookies

Tuesdays with Dorie Dorie’s Cookies Good Better Best Cookies. Dorie provides us three ways we can make these cookies. The plain cookies (na), sandwich cookies with Biscoff filling (better) or sandwich cookies dipped in chocolate (now we’re talking). Any time there is a chocolate option I am going to take it. I made these cookies…

Almond Stripes

Tuesdays with Dorie Baking Chez Moi Like many of my fellow bakers, I had trouble piping my ‘dough’, more like almond paste. The dough only moistened by one tablespoon of egg white needed much more to extrude through a piping bag. I also needed to bake mine longer than 8-10 minutes. Once baked, Dorie gives…

Date-Nut Pinwheels

Tuesdays with Dorie Dorie’s Cookies Thank you to Steph who selected these cookies for this month. I think I have been the only one who voted for them. I have quite the stash of dates and was looking for a yummy way to use them up. This is a plan ahead cookie as there are…

Coffee-Cardamom Cookies

Coffee is serious business in our house. My husband is obsessed with a good cup of coffee. We buy whole beans, have a bean grinder and several coffee makers. The latest acquisition is a Capresso coffee maker, I get espressos for breakfast every weekend:) I voted for these cookies for my coffee loving husband. Wow,…

Speculoos

Tuesdays with Dorie Baking Chez Moi I have made Dorie’s speculoos cookies before from Around My French Table and the reviews were great. I was looking forward to trying this recipe. The difference with this recipe is the technique, this dough is rolled into logs and then sliced and baked. My first attempt did not…

Maple-Star Anise Cookies

Tuesdays with Dorie Dorie’s Cookies So if I named these cookies I would name them Orange-Star Anise Cookies. I couldn’t really taste the maple syrup. It is pretty hard to have maple shine through when orange rind and star anise are such strong flavors. We love sandwich cookies so I went that route. My husband…

Cocoa-Tahini Cookies with Sesame Crunch

Tuesdays with Dorie Dorie’s Cookies We loved everything about these cookies. As soon as I took them out of the oven everyone ate two. This is my first time baking with tahini and it won’t be my last.  For the sesame crunch I decided to make from scratch since I could always use the practice…
