Tuesdays with Dorie: Copenhagen Rye Cookies with Chocolate, Spice and Seeds from Baking with Dorie

Copenhagen Rye Cookies with Chocolate, Spice and Seeds on a baking tray covered in parchment.

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe comes from Baking with Dorie. Copenhagen Rye Cookies with Chocolate, Spice and Seeds is a bit of a mouthful to say but actually come together very easily with (mostly) ingredients I normally have on hand. The “rye flour” from the title isn’t actually that significant, there is more all-purpose/ plain flour in these than rye so you can’t really taste it that much. I don’t like cardamom in baked goods so I used more coffee and cinnamon and the coffee flavour in these was pronounced which I liked. The seeds the recipe calls for can be poppy, sesame, sunflower, flax or other grains like millet or buckwheat.

We had sunflower seeds on hand so that’s what I used. Dorie says the dough behaves differently depending on if you bake it immediately or if you let it rest in the fridge. We didn’t have space in the fridge so I baked right after I made the dough and LOVED how the cookies spread into thick, soft, chewy cookies. I topped some with seeds…

Some with chocolate…

And some with both chocolate and seeds on top…

These were a hit and I think I’d definitely make them again maybe just without coffee and seeds to see what they are like as an actual chocolate chip cookie?

  1. Beautiful photo…they have such a lovely color and your toppings are so fun…Mark likes the ones with the chocolate chips on the top, so I made a note to do that next time. He really liked the flavors in this cookie…he has a lot of cookie eating to do as I made the entire recipe for once.
