I've been working on a new cookie recipe. It's a shortbread "lunchroom" cookie recipe based on the one in Chef Darius Williams' book Stories from My Grandmother's Kitchen. The first batch was great, as everyone at work enjoyed them. (I wish I had a picture of them).
Here's a pic of them off the internets:
They were sooooo good. The official name of them are lunchroom butter cookies. I don't remember those in my lunchroom. He had the store bought butter cookies.
I wanted to experiment with the next batch. So I looked around on pinterest and tweeked it a little. Darius' recipe was the best, but I wanted something that I could roll and cut into shapes. (I think I can do that with his recipe if I worked the dough enough).
Here are the results.
A plain butter cookie.
Those were delicious. I think they would jump a notch in flavor if I sauteed the pecans in butter, or roasted the pecans.
And that's too much work for me. Regular chopped pecans will have to do.
I'm going to experiment with a lemon, orange, or chocolate version. It doesn't matter if I mess up because I can just bring them to work.
These people will eat anything!!
Because Birthdays - It's my birthday. I had a whole post written. Being all kinds of introspective. I decided to delete it. I'm not in the mood to be deep. It's my birthday.
