The Dorie Experience #2

Dorie Recipe Number 2: Peanut Butter Crisscrosses

The taste reminds me of: After school cookie time.
My favorite part of making these: I enjoy squishing cookie dough. This time I got to use a fork :)Spontaneous rhyme: Butter rhymes with Shutter, as in you better close your shutters or the whole neighborhood will be at your house craving cookies due to the aroma.
Would I make these again: YES
Best consumed while: Dancing barefoot in the kitchen to the musical stylings of "OK Computer".

The Dorie Experience #1

Well, I'm not entirely sure, but it appears that I have been dropped from "Tuesdays with Dorie". I took a couple of months off due to wedding plans (a two month engagement dictated that I focus on things other then baking), and when I checked the TWD site, I found that my name was no longer listed as a member.

I love baking from the book, so I have decided to continue baking, and post what I discover.

Dorie Recipe Number 1: Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies
The taste reminds me of: Christmas, only without the cute shapes.
My favorite part of making these: Rolling the dough balls in sugar and squishing with a glass.
Spontaneous rhyme: Spice rhymes with Nice....which these cookies are most definitely.
Would I make these again: YES
Best consumed while: Working on class assignments in front of the computer.
