Snowy-Topped Brownie Drops

This recipe is all I hoped it would be; chocolaty, chewy goodness. This is the brownie version of a crinkle topped cookie. Made with eight ounces of bittersweet chocolate, this is not for the faint of heart. We are chocolate lovers and these are disappearing fast in my house as well as the milk. To…

Chocolate-Pecan Pie Cookie Bars

Every year I host a friendsgiving and it is always bigger than my Thanksgiving. I bake our November selections every year and Dorie’s desserts are always a crowd pleaser. This year I picked these chocolate-pecan pie cookie bars to share. The base of the cookie is Dorie’s sweet tart dough partially baked. The topping is…

Smoky, Cheesy Cookies

Back to the cocktail section this week on Tuesdays with Dorie. These smoky, cheesy cookies were a hit in my house. Thumbs up all around.

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…

As with most rolled cookies, you need to plan ahead for chilling time. My first batch I cooked for 19 minutes, burned. The second batch I…

In the instructions, Dorie asks that you press the confectioners’ sugar, almond flour, cocoa, cinnamon and salt through a fine strainer. I had trouble getting…

Sweet Cream Cheese Honey Nut Wafers

My husband coined these open faced rugelach. He is right as these have cream cheese dough like the famed rolled cookie. Dorie states you can make these savory or sweet. I went with the sweet route since one of my friends just gave me a jar of homemade fig jam. I made a half recipe…
