Melody Cookies

According to Dorie Melody Cookies were a big hit in the 60s from Nabisco but by 1970 had disappeared. This cookie phenomenon was before my time so I was not aware of what I was missing. These cookies came out as promised; very chocolaty and with a nice snap. Dorie recommends Valrhona dark cocoa but…

Cat’s Tongues

“Cat’s Tongues are long, thin oval-shaped cookies that are characteristically browned around the edges and paler at the center.” When I read Dorie’s Bonne Idee for this cookie, Milano-ish sandwich cookies with a chocolate ganache I knew I would make that version.

These fudgy mocha bars are loaded with chocolate including cocoa powder and 6 ounces of chopped semi-sweet chocolate with a hint of coffee. The crispy top was my favorite part. And there is only…

Roasted Rhubarb

When I think of roasted rhubarb, it reminds me of Knott’s Berry Farm chicken dinner. The only time I ever ate rhubarb in a dish growing up was at Knott’s Berry Farm, Dorie has provided us with the French version in Baking Chez Moi. Since the Angostura bitters were optional I decided to leave them…

Triscuity Bites

Tuesdays with Dorie is back to the cocktail section of Dorie’s Cookies. These Triscuity Bites are made with you guessed it Triscuits. I had a bit of trouble finding the original flavor as the company has recently revamped their packaging. These savory bites are made with cream cheese and butter for richness, the crunch comes…
