Kamish (Mandelbrot) (Almond Bread)

Posted on

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 […]

Viennese Sablés (Tuesdays with Dorie)

Viennese Sables

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 […]

Peanut Butter Change-Ups (Peanut Butter Cookies)

Peanut Butter Change-Ups

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 […]

Summer Market Galette

Posted on

It’s definitely summer! The heat has been in full force, and the summer fruits have made their presence in farmer’s markets and grocery stores! I actually baked this Summer Market Galette more than a month ago as part of a Tuesdays with Dorie post, but I missed both post dates (procrastination)! On the bright side, I’m still […]

Betty’s Chocoholic Cake

Posted on

Betty’s Chocoholic Cake was the second Tuesdays with Dorie assignment for May. This is definitely a cake for chocolate lovers. Betty’s Chocoholic Cake is comprised of three layers of fudgy brownies that are held together with chocolate ganache, and then covered with more chocolate ganache before finally getting topped off with white chocolate shavings.

Tarte Tropézienne

Posted on

One of this month’s Tuesdays With Dorie assignments is the Tarte Tropézienne from Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. It’s like a brioche cake with a delicious cream filling, and topped with pearl sugar. It sounds odd, but it’s really nom-worthy. This is supposed to be a beautiful cake, but mine turned out looking very “rustic.”

Jammer Galette

Jammer Galette

I can describe the Jammer Galette as a gigantic shortbread cookie with jam on top of it, covered with a layer of buttery streusel. This is another Tuesdays with Dorie assignment and the recipe for this is not very different from the cookie-sized Jammers (by Dorie) found on bon apetit.

Matcha Financiers

Matcha Financiers from Baking Chez Moi was the second assignment for March (the first was Odile’s Fresh Orange Cake) for the Tuesdays with Dorie group. Dorie Greenspan’s recipe resulted in light, fluffy mini-muffins with a subtle matcha taste.  I will make these again, but I’ll make a note to myself now to use 2 tsp of […]
