Tuesdays with Dorie REWIND: Coffee Malteds

I’m not a coffee fan- in any form. Hot, cold, flavored- forget it. I did like these cookies though! I used ground Starbucks mocha peppermint coffee and regular malted milk powder. They were a huge hit here! And even better? Start to finish, clean up and out of the oven- in less than an hour….

Tuesdays with Dorie: Crash-O-Cookies

An oatmeal cookie stuffed with dried fruit and chocolate? Who can resist? I used dried cherries in mine upon realizing that I was out of raisins. They ended up more flat than they looked in the book, although I followed the recipe to the T. Oh well… these went over very well and everyone liked…

Anytime Apricot Rosemary Cookies

This is the sweetest “cocktail” cookie I’ve tried so far out of Dorie’s Cookies. I went into this knowing that I”m a shortbread fan- of pretty much all types. I used Turkish apricots and rosemary instead of tarragon- rosemary was in the backyard! I altered from the original preparation a bit- and rolled the dough…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Classic Jammers

I’m a Michigander, born and raised, and had never heard of a jammer, but I had a feeling I’d like these! I’ve been a fan of sables for YEARS. Hands down, favorite type of cookie to make and to eat. The fact that these had jam in them presented another opportunity- which of the many…

TWD: Blueberry Buttermilk Pie Bars

We live in Michigan, and have never had or heard of buttermilk pie prior making these. They couldn’t have been simpler to put together and bake, and we really enjoyed them! My fiancee and I are both looking forward to taking these to work with us and get opinions on the bars. They were less…

#CreativeCookieExchange Chocolate Coconut Oysters

I made these for a party, and they were huge hits! By making them proportional to the candy pearls, these were just about 1 inch in diameter- and bite sized. Everyone loved the bright flavors, and how tropical they tasted. Chocolate Do Almost Anything Cookie Dough Adapted from Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan 4 cups…

Tuesdays with Dorie! Goat Cheese and Chive Cookies

This was my first foray into the “cocktail cookies” section of Dorie’s Cookies. And I think these cookies might be related to it’s thinner cousin, the cracker. That being said- we were big fans of these. I used the correct type of goat cheese- chèvre (thank you Trader Joe’s for having that!). But I couldn’t…

Tuesdays with Dorie Chocolate Cornflake Haystacks

This is a rare occasion where I’m grateful for being a part of Tuesday’s with Dorie. This particular recipe is one I would have skipped almost for certain. Nothing about it appealed to me. My fiancee? A whole different story. He was excited for these. (Anyone else excited for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2…

#CreativeCookieExchange Sunny Side Up Meringues

This is my first month of participating in the #CreativeCookieExchange, and as my fiancee pointed out- “Do you REALLY need another baking group?” But I couldn’t resist the freedom this group gives me. All of my other groups follow along a book, and everyone makes the same  two recipes of the month. #CreativeCookieExchange gives my…

TWD: Anzac Biscuits

In honor of ANZAC Day on April 25th, we made classic ANZAC Biscuits. ANZAC is an acronym for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. These cookies are an interesting combination of oats, coconut, butter, flour, sugar and Golden Syrup (cane sugar syrup). I only keep unsweetened coconut in the house, so I used that,…
