TWD - Mrs Corbitt’s Pecan Cake Fingers

 


This week’s Tuesday With Dorie recipe is Mrs Corbitt’s Cake Fingers. It’s hard to describe these - kind of a meringue cookie with browned butter icing.

I thought I’d really like these, but they were a tad too sweet for me. I took Steph’s tip and thinned the icing with water rather than pressing it onto the cookies. I also iced the cookies before cutting them to save time.

To see what everyone else made and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

  1. These were also too sweet for me, I gave them all away (made 1/4 of the recipe). They were also fiddly and that icing? I don't know what to say!! I didn't thin mine and it completely cracked when I sliced them. Oh well. Interesting technique, I suppose!
