How did Tuesday get here so soon? Time is speeding ahead and it's almost Valentine's Day already. My sister in laws thought it would be fun to make a gourmet dinner for our husbands and have a really fun date. Kristi wants us to wear updo's and Auburn is even busting out the chargers for our meal. I'd love some menu suggestions keeping in mind the fact that we have five kids between us and will be cooking with them and my husband's "no tomatoes, no chocolate, nothing too spicy or delicious" stomach requirements. How's that for tricky? It should be fun though and I can't wait to bust open my Dorie book and browse the desserts for our special meal.
As for these cookies, they are appropriately named and freaking good too. They come together easily and are open for variation. For an interesting debate on the right salt to top them with, check this post. I think I'll book mark it for the next time I'm in the market, lol! I did make these with just a sprinkle of kosher salt on top and they were great. Next time, I think I'll make them a little broader and keep slicing them a bit thicker than Dorie suggests. I think she's a bit of a miracle worker in the number of cookies she can get out of a batch! I loved her anecdote about eating her own recipe at a luncheon. She's a great writer of stories and recipes alike.
Be sure to stop by Jessica's blog for the recipe. I'm glad these cookies were finally chosen- they're delicious! And let me know what you'd make for your honey- the clock is ticking! Please accept my apologies for the picture shortage, too. My kitchen will be done soon and I hope my life will get in order then! :)
