DC - Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are called "My Newest Chocolate Chip Cookies" in Dorie Greenspan's Dorie's Cookies book.   Other than a bit of a nutmeg and coriander the recipe is very similar to a regular chocolate chip cookies. I have never been a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies.  Which is very strange because I love chocolate!   For a cookie to be great in my opinion it has to be chock-full of things like nuts, fruit, etc.  i'm really a pie kind of girl.  Even as a child I would choose pies over cakes for sure!  The only cookies I remember my mother making when I was a child are her famous tea cakes with homemade chocolate sauce and chocolate oatmeal boiled cookies. Do any of you remember those?  Sometimes we would add a tablespoon of peanut butter to them.  They were very yummy!  I'm allergic to oatmeal now so those days are gone.



Anyway these are delicious cookies and very easy to make.  I used a small melon baller to scoop out the dough.  My cookies turned out larger than I had anticipated.  So I had to cook them about 12 minutes.

Check us out next month to see what we will be making!

DC - Blueberry Buttermilk Bars

I attempted to make Dorie's buttermilk blueberry bars.  I tried to half the recipe.  In this case, that did not work as well as I hoped.  Also, When I took my crust from the oven it  had some almost black areas on it like it had burned even though I removed it five minutes earlier than the recipe called for.  They were just random areas.  Anyway the cookies tasted delicious and that's what's important!  I would definitely make this again. I cannot stop eating these cookies!  They are that good! Next time I will make the full recipe.
