TWD: Thumbprints For Us Big Guys
I've got to give a big old pat on the back and thank you to Mike of Ugly Food Dude. He selected Thumbprints For Us Big Guys for this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe. (I can't wait to see if he picked the recipe because it has the word "guys" in it. You know... because he's a guy.)
I seriously fell in love with these cookies. I could have eaten every single one myself, in one sitting. Good thing I only made 1/2 batch. And good thing my neighbors don't mind me off-loading baked goods to them. And good thing I've been working my [bleep] off in the gym lately so I have just a teeny, tiny, itty-bitty shred of willpower these days. (I know, it doesn't make sense to bake every week and then have to kill yourself in the gym. No sense. At all.)
These shortbread-type cookies were supposed to be made with hazelnuts. But seeing how my bag of hazelnuts was, oh, a year past it's expiration, I went with almonds. Fine with me, I love almondy baked goods. And, since it was almonds, I HAD to go with cherry jam.
Sigh, these were so good. I miss them already. Wonder if the neighbors have any left...
OK, wanna see the recipe? Go visit Mike's blog, or find yourself a copy of Dorie Greenspan's book, "Baking, From my Home to Yours".
