TWD - Cranberry Five Spice Cookies
For Tuesday with Dorie this week, the recipe is Cranberry Five Spice Cookies. These came about because Dorie is obsessed with Chinese five spice powder and likes it in both savoury and sweet applications.
The cookies involve making a very sticky dough seasoned with Chinese five spice powder and mixing through chopped salted peanuts and fresh or frozen cranberries. Cranberries other than in the form of craisins are like the Tasmanian tiger here - sightings are sometime reported, but they are rare (and expensive). For that reason, I subbed in frozen cherries. They did not have the tart zing of cranberries so maybe I should have used craisins.
I topped my cookies with finely chopped peanuts mixed with a little Chinese five spice powder.
The end result was fine, but didn’t really grab me.
