For this weeks Tuesday with Dorie we finish up our trio of cookies with the pick of Heather of Randomosity and the Girl she has chosen Buttery Jam Cookies on page 80 from Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
After the roll out cookies and the challenges that come from dealing with them in the tropics it was a joy to get a drop cookie recipe.
These are nice and easy. I used some homemade apricot levkar I had lurking in the depths of the fridge (leftover from the Daring Bakers Danish a few months ago). My levkar is nice and thick so the dough stayed in shape. The levkar also had a really concentrated apricot flavour so it worked a charm.
My cookies came out like sweet scones and were not flaky, perhaps even a touch cakey out of the oven. I am a crispy and chewy cookie fan personally but, my husband is completely impressed with them. His words- ‘These Rock’
Given today is our 13th wedding anniversary isn’t it nice he got something that was all about him without planning it. Thanks Dorie and Heather for helping me sort out an easy pressie!
Now go and check the TWD blogroll and check out what jam and spice combos people came up with.
