This month's Tuesdays with Dorie selections are different. Because of the Thanksgiving holiday this month, we are allowed to post any of the 4 chosen recipes on any Tuesday this month. Since I plan on making the fancy Chocolate Caramel Chestnut Cake for Thanksgiving dessert, I chose to make these lovely cookies first thanks to Pamela over at Cookies with Boys.
These babies do pack a wallop of flavor! Spicy, sweet, peppery...all that goodness. I didn't put the "large" pinch of cracked pepper in the mix...stuck with the "small" as the kids will be eating these. I also rolled the balls in turbinado sugar prior to baking. I like the finished look of the cookies I didn't press down before putting them in the oven. I think you can see the sugar crystals clearly and I think they're prettier :)
These cookies taste like Christmas. I kept half of the dough in the freezer to make later this month as it has been about 85 degrees here for the last week...it sure doesn't feel like fall/winter here!
I'm also excited this week as a friend of mine from high school who moved to Colorado and started a family has joined TWD!!! Shelly, whose blog can be found here, and I have kept in touch throughout the many years we have lived far away from one another and I am happy we get to do this together!!
Stop by here to see what the others baked up.
Thanks for stopping by.
