Spring is upon us, and what better way to start celebrating some warmer weather than with the bright flavor of Meyer lemons? Meyer lemons have a sweeter flavor and less of a puckering sourness than your everyday lemons. They also look different with their darker, more orange color. If you were to cross a lemon […]
The first time I went to Paris, I may have driven my friends a little mad with my requests to stop at what felt like every shop that sold macarons. There were macarons in every color of the rainbow and so many delicious flavors available, it was impossible not to want to try them all! […]
It’s May and spring is transitioning into summer. I’m glad that the Tuesdays with Dorie group decided on the Springtime Cookies and Curd and Double-Butter Double-Baked Petit Beurre Cookies as recipes to bake this month. The cookies are nice and buttery with a nice cripsness to them, and the strawberries and citrus curd are incredibly […]
This Tuesdays with Dorie assignment from Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan is for Kamish, which is a mandelbrot (almond bread) recipe. The name Kamish comes from a woman named Toby Reichert, whose mandelbrot recipe was deemed as good as Dorie’s own grandmother’s version. This recipe is very simple, but it takes a little bit of time to complete […]
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Tuesdays with Dorie assignment! One of the recipes for the month of April is Viennese Sablés. These are crisp and buttery biscuits that are just as easy to make as they are to eat, which makes these very dangerous cookies. I made these Viennese Sablés a few years […]
Snowy-Topped Brownie Drops are cookies with a soft and chocolatey center that any chocoholic would love. The snowy crackly tops are made from powdered sugar, which surprisingly does not add a lot sweetness to the cookies. Dorie Greenspan’s cookie recipes have just enough sweetness to them, which is something I appreciate.
I was going through Dorie Greenspan’s latest cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies, with my sister and one of the first recipes she asked me to make for her was for Lemon Sugar Cookies. I baked them the following day and they turned out great! These Sugar Lemon Cookies are not super sweet and they have an incredible crispy “shell” protecting a […]
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie assignment was making Peanut Butter Change-Ups from Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies. These are pretty much fully loaded peanut butter cookies because there are tons of peanuts and a jar of peanut butter in one batch! These cookies are soft and crunchy at the same time (the crunchiness comes from bits […]
This recipe for Chocolate Crème Sandwiches is the first one I’m making out of Dorie Greenspan’s newest cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies with the Tuesdays with Dorie bake-along group. To me, this is like a grown-up’s version of an Oreo cookie. The cookie itself isn’t sweet, but the filling more than makes up for that!
Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies, was released this week. I went through the entire thing the night mine came in the mail and I couldn’t wait to get baking! One of the recipes that caught my attention was for the French Snacklettes. Dorie received this recipe from Arnaud Larher (a Paris pastry star) about 20 […]
