Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Toasted Buckwheat and Chopped Chocolate Sablés

Dorie Greenspan Toasted Buckwheat and Chopped Chocolate Sablés from Baking Chez Moi on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis 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!

Sweet and salty and a bit crunchy and a bit melt-in-your mouth. Pretty perfect when you need more than a plain sablé but don’t want to go all out chocolate chip cookie!

    Ohhh, I love the look of these with the whole chocolate chips! I think I will follow your lead…keeps the chocolate more uniform throughout the cookie too! Great job!

    I will agree with you that chopping chocolate is quite a messy affair. We enjoyed these and I even gave a few away to some happy friends.
