Fried Potato Crackers

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we headed to the Cocktail section of Dorie’s Cookies. These crackers are made with potato flakes, an item I don’t think I have ever purchased before. Dry ingredients of flour, potato flakes, baking powder are mixed together with a little butter, salt, an egg and hot water to form…

Coconut-Lime Sablés

Our latest baking adventure from Dorie’s Cookies, a tropical inspired Coconut-Lime Sablé. As my husband calls these “confused cookies” since they are made in a muffin pan. Normal ingredients include butter, sugar, flour and tropical ingredients coriander, limes, and coconut (sweet, unsweetened, toasted and plain). There is a lot going on in these cookies which…

Peanut Butter and Fudge Brownies

This week on Tuesday with Dorie we are divining deep into chocolate, thank goodness for Trader Joe’s Pound Plus Chocolate Bars. These fudge brownies have a whopping 17 ounces of chocolate and butter, lots of butter. When my husband read the recipe he said “these are going to be rich”. This is a three layer…

They-Might-Be-Breakfast Cookies

I was a member of a committee at my son’s school. This was a 7 AM meeting so I tried to bring some baked goods, mostly muffins, when I attended. The attendees were always grateful. This recipe from Dorie’s Cookies caught my eye so I tried these instead of muffins. These were a soft and…

Salt-And-Pepper Sugar-And-Spice Galettes

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we have a simple recipe with ingredients that most of us have in our cabinet. My family and I have decided we don’t like black pepper in our cookies, we have made a few over the years, so I left out the black pepper. The other spices include cinnamon,…

Every-Way Shortbread Fans

For this recipe I had to turn to Dorie’s “playing around” section. I had fully intended to make the lemon-poppy seed version but I discovered that I did not have poppy seeds or lemon extract. I did have, on the other hand, orange extract so I went with orange shortbread. I would have preferred to…

Little Rascals

I voted for these jam filled sandwich cookies because my husband loves jam, I had jam to use up and I had all the ingredients to make them, a win-win-win. The German name for this cookie is Spitzbuben translated as little rascals. This is a new cookie for me. I made one substitution, my husband…

Garam Grahams

Once upon a time…before coronavirus, I could buy groceries that I needed. Now, grocery shopping seems to be the most challenging thing to do. I have been looking for our key ingredient, garam masala, since before the coronavirus outbreak but my husband reminded me that I could just make it at home. He was right,…

Almond Crescents

My husband’s favorite nut is the almond. They show up in his granola, with a meal think trout amandine and in his desserts. I voted for these knowing that they would hit the spot. These are fairly easy to put together butter, sugar, salt are blended until smooth and then vanilla and almond extract are…

Lavender-White Chocolate Sables

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we are baking from Dorie’s Cookies. This is one of two recipes in which lavender will be used this month. Lavender is not an ingredient I was used to cooking with but Dorie has introduced it to me in a few recipes. This is the 4th sables recipe we…
