TWD: Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies
Donna of Life’s Too Short Not to Eat Dessert First picked Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. (Or my version.... "Fridays with Dorie".)
I love Dorie's method of rolling out the cookie dough in a large Ziploc bag. I sometimes wonder how much time was spent in recipe development, making sure the quantity was just right to make the perfect thickness of dough.
No matter, these were super easy to throw together.
As for the taste... now, my hatred of coffee and coffee-flavored desserts is usually never wavering. But these cookies were a complete surprise, because I liked them. Go figure!
I did cheat a little by using coffee powder rather than espresso powder. But still, the coffee flavor was definitely there.
Thanks so much for this pleasingly surprising pick, Donna! If you'd like to see the recipe, please visit Donna's site, or check out Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".
