Tuesdays with Dorie (Dorie’s Cookies): Corked Breton Galettes

Dorie Greenspan Corked Breton galettes image on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Dorie’s Cookies is super simple – dangerously so in fact… I’m crazy busy working on my manuscript, trying to get organised for my trip to Lyon at the end of the week (shooting photos for the book!) and tidying up other loose ends that come with end-of-term but I managed to sneak in a half-batch of these during a writing break on the weekend.

When they are just out of the oven, you take a cork to the centre of the cookies to make an indentation in them which will later be filled with jam. Sounds simple, huh?

Kind of. My cookies look a little more crumbly and cracked than Dorie’s do in the book and that’s just when they were in the tins… When I tried to take them out of the tins, I realised that I hadn’t actually buttered them. The cookies were REALLY hard to pry out (and these muffin tins are generally very non-stick).

I’ll be making these again when I have a little more time on my hands. Easy to make, cute to look at and tasty to eat – what’s not to love?!

    Yes, these were easy to put together which I enjoyed. Good luck with the photo shoot and I hope you can rest a little on your trip.

      No rest until after April 3rd but it’s a different environment so I say a change is as good as a holiday!

    Those look perfectly delicious. The Man said they were good. I will have to trust his judgement.
