TWD - Bees Sneeze Nuggets



I have just moved house, so baking for Tuesday with Dorie (and posting this blog post) have posed some serious issues for me this week.  However, where there's a will, there's a way, and I have managed to bake and blog about these Bees Sneeze Nuggets.

Bees Sneeze Nuggets are named after a cocktail that Dorie had in New York, and the flavours of that cocktail (gin, lemon, honey, ginger, pepper) are incorporated into these little savoury cookies.  They look like scones, but they really are biscuits (or cookies, depending on where you come from).  These nuggets have the honour of christening my (new to me) oven.

I was rather sceptical, but these are very tasty.  They are only tiny (an inch wide), but as Dorie says, the flavours pack a punch.  I liked them - they tasted kind of like a throat lozenge in cookie form, which doesn't sound good, but it is.

To see what the other Dorie bakers made this week and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website

Congratulations on the move and kudos to you for baking after moving. I am glad you liked them otherwise the blame was mine since I voted for them. Throat lozenge is interesting, can't wait to try them.

hehe I was thinking I really liked the sound of these as I always have throat lozenges on hand. What a funny idea!

I love the name of these - they sound interesting. Hope your new home and new oven are going well (I would give a lot for a new oven right now)

Happy new oven and house!! They look very cute and though they sound weird: cough lozenge in a biscuit form, I trust you when you say they are yummy!!
