Beginning this week, the Tuesdays with Dorie group is now baking from Dorie Greenspan's new book, Dorie's Cookies (which was just released last month). The group posts for this will be the first and third Tuesdays of the month and can be linked at the main Tuesdays with Dorie website here. You can also find the information on joining in and/or see the posts from those in the group baking along at this location.
Cookies are a good fit for us, even with it just being the two of us at home these days. They are always a welcome snack, can be frozen for later use, or easily given away to cookie-loving recipients. Cookies are easily transportable, definitely making things much more convenient when you are looking for a home for extra baked goods.
The group could chose from one of two recipes to post this week, leaving the other recipe for the post on the third Tuesday. I chose to make the Peanut Butter Change-Ups. This recipe was posted in the Washington Post so you can access that here and try them for yourself while you wait for your own copy of the book to arrive.
Ingredient list: flour, baking powder, nutmeg, peanut butter, butter, salt, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and peanuts.
The cookies were easy to make, used common pantry ingredients, and were full of wonderful peanut-y goodness. I would not hesitate to make these again. Definitely repeat worthy. Wonder what the others thought? You can check it out here.
Purchase a copy of Dorie Greenspan's Dorie's Cookies and bake along with the group or just bake on your own. Dorie's books are always wonderfully written and illustrated, and you will have 300 cookie recipes at your fingertips. :-)
