TWD DC - World Peace Cookies and Breakfast Biscotti
This week sees another twofer from Dorie's Cookies for Tuesdays with Dorie. First up is World Peace Cookies - chocolate cookies with chocolate chunks. I have made these before for the original Tuesdays with Dorie group, not once, but twice. When I think of all the water that has gone under the bridge since either of those times, I am gob-smacked.
However, I can say that practice makes perfect with these cookies - I think my latest attempt has produced the best looking batch yet, and they are certainly just as delicious. Who can resist a chocolate cookie with chocolate chunks? I ate three of them this time all by myself.
Our next cookie this month is Breakfast Biscotti. At first, I was not enthused about making these - my main experiences with biscotti are of the store-bought variety, which always seem rather dry and unpalatable. However, these biscotti are not like that at all. They are chunkier than the store-bought variety, and much moister. I used muesli with dried fruit which I did not pick out (although the recipe said I should), and sultanas instead of cranberries, both influenced by what I had in the house. And I loved these cookies. So delicious and fruity and nutty, and not at all dry. A winner in my books.
