TWD - Midnight Crackles
If you're not a Tuesday baker but you read my blog, I hope that from time to time - today, even! - you'll scroll down my blog list, to the left of this post. Each of my fellow bloggers is has a different take on the recipe of the week. Often funny, sometimes in the face of disaster, I always gain from reading their blogs.
Now, on to today's recipe - Midnight Crackles. Before it was chosen, this recipe was on my holiday cookie list. What could be more festive than a crackle-topped cookie? They got mixed reviews from the children, but were a hit with adults. Yes, they look like dark chocolate, but taste of cinnamon. I loved the combination. Of all the recipes in Dorie's book that used cinnamon and chocolate, this might be my favourite. It's at least as good as Cinnamon Squares.
In honour of our anniversary, this recipe was chosen by Laurie and Julie, who manage the Tuesdays with Dorie website. This link will take you right to the recipe. Midnight Crackles.
Dorie Greenspan also offers a variation on this recipe by turning it into a roll-out. Her technique is on her blog, In The Kitchen and On The Road With Dorie.
I hope you'll keep coming back as we make it through the home stretch of baking our way through Baking from my home to yours.
