Tuesdays With Dorie is now three years old. I didn’t join the group until October of 2008, but what a great ride this has been.
I made a half batch of these cookies for New Year’s Eve. I left out the cinnamon and cloves.
I thought the cookies were just okay. (I know, check my forehead. Am I feeling okay?) I decided to spruce them up a bit.
Little drizzle of white chocolate. They certainly looked more festive. Didn’t change the flavor much. Don’t get me wrong. I think they taste good. I guess there’s just other chocolate cookies I like better. Like--
Just to name a few. I also didn’t scarf down a dozen of these cookies (ok, I never do that) because now that the holidays are over, I’m watching a lot more of what I eat for a while, which made me just give these cookies a small taste, so maybe I just didn’t taste enough to really appreciate their most chocolaty-ness. ;)
There’s a reason I continue to bake along with this great group of bloggers and bakers. Besides my love for baking, I love taking this chance to jump out of my chocolate chip cookie/boxed brownies comfort zone. I am certainly thankful to Dorie and Laurie and the others involved in making this opportunity available for so many and I’m happy to be a part of it.
You can find the recipe for these cookies on the Tuesdays With Dorie website.
