Heather of Randomosity and The Girl chose this week's TWD recipe: Buttery Jam Cookies. I'm not sure what I was expecting from this cookie. Perhaps a cookie made with lots of butter, sandwiched between some kind of jam--more like a linzer...? So, when I read through the recipe and saw that the apricot jam was to be mixed throughout the dough, I was obviously on the wrong track with my similar-to-a-linzer theory. Unfortunately, I have to say that this is the first Dorie recipe that I'm utterly disappointed in. Dorie, don't be mad. I have loved every single one of your recipes since I've started this fun group and this one just didn't make the cut. I guess that was bound to happen, right? I forgive you.
While this cookie combines the flavors of ginger and apricot jam, the taste was very bland and blah. I did everything in my power to salvage these cookies so I dipped them in melted butter and rolled them around a cinnamon and sugar mixture. End result: these were OK. On the upside, the cookies were a cinch to make and I'm sure would satisfy the "not-so-sweet tooth" kind of person. Check out Heather's blog for the recipe.
