This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Baking Chez Moi was a lovely cross between chocolate chip cookies and shortbread that *felt* slightly healthy because of the buckwheat flour. Dorie’s using an interesting technique of toasting the buckwheat flour gives these even more of a nuttiness than the buckwheat does on its own (hence the “healthy” taste 😉 ).
I actually used half whole-wheat flour and half all-purpose flour as I had a little bit of each to use up so my cookies were a three-flour affair. I didn’t have chopped chocolate but I’ve realised that chocolate chips are roughly 1/4-inch high so it helps you roll the dough to the perfect thickness (less mess and fuss than chopped chocolate and I always end up having shards of chocolate bake into the cookie giving it a browner hue than I’d like)… I loved how these looked!
