This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Dorie’s Cookies was one I’d been eyeing ever since I first saw the book. They’re like Dorie’s version of Oreos (“Dorie-Os”?) and having tried my hand at a much more complex recipe, I was eager to see what Dorie had come up with and if it was easier.
Turns out that, of course Dorie’s recipe is much more approachable. The cookie dough is a joy to work with thanks to Dorie’s tip of rolling it out right away then freezing it before you cut out the cookies – no more rolling out a brick of cold (crumbly) dough that’s impossible to work with. It’s a brilliant tip and one I’ve been using for a while with some pie and tart crusts and galette doughs too and I think I’ll be using it with roll out cookies from now on too.
The filling is a simple buttercream that I added a tablespoon of whipping cream to make it a little easier to pipe…
These were the FAVOURITE cookie of the weekend (in a weekend when I baked and cooked pretty much non stop). People couldn’t stop eating them and my neighbour who tasted them a few days ago is still talking about them.
My mum, all the way away in Sydney, Australia, has a copy of the book as well and I encouraged her to bake along with us this week. She made a raspberry cream to fill the cookies with. They look so good!
These are cookies I’ll bookmark to make for something like a bake sale or a party – they seem to appeal to people’s sense of nostalgia and it’s great to see people’s reactions to this “much better than store-bought” version! Sssh – we won’t tell them it’s so easy, will we?
