This week for the Tuesday’s With Dorie Bake, Ulrike of Küchenlatein chose Grandma’s All-Occasion Sugar Cookies on pages 146-147 of Dorie Greenspans Baking From My Home To Yours.
It is still quite warm here so another butter rich dough was a challenge. In fact after one batch I decided I need to stop talking about using the other better air conditioned kitchen and do it!
You can see the dough melting away above.
I really wanted to make the Christmas Cookie Tree. That’s what the hole is for in the middle.
I need to bake the other half of the dough to get more of the tree thing happening. I also have some gingerbread dough to supplement the bulk. I will take more photos once done and add it to this post. Hopefully I also get my camera back (which I lent to my sister in law for the company Christmas party) tomorrow so the photos will be clearer. I am fond of my little Olympus.
This cookies were very crispy and lovely. I stuck to the base recipe and didn’t try any mix ins. I am looking forward to finishing off the tree- maybe it will rain tomorrow and take the heat down to below 30C. Now go and check out the TWD blogroll and see the other tasty treats.
