TWD: Midnight Crackles


Happy Three Year Anniversary to Tuesdays with Dorie!

I've been baking with this terrific group since February 2008. Hard to believe.

For the celebration recipe, Laurie and Julie chose Midnight Crackles, an interesting cookie that becomes more delicious with each bite.

I apparently didn't squash mine enough compared to everyone else's cookies. Mine came out as rich, brownie-like nuggets. No matter. They taste ridiculously delicious, as my daughter said.

I chose not to chill these before rolling into balls, based on chatter at the P&Q site. Except for leaving my hands exceptionally greasy, they turned out just fine with very little spread while baking.

The recipe appears on the TWD blog. It's definitely worth a try.

Thanks to Laurie for being such an inspiration. Thanks to Julie for being a great assistant. And, thanks to Dorie for creating such wonderful treats.

Happy New Year to all.

These look great Judy - I think fudgy and nuggety is good.

I scooped mine out and then refrigerated them. I didn't even bother to roll them.

Yours look extra special good. They are a bit higher than most of the others and look ready to be bitten into.

I'm taking your advice and not chilling the dough next time I make these... my hands are still hurting! :) Yours look terrific!

Mine were a little too crunchy to be like brownies. Yours look delicious!

Mary said...

Those look great--a lot like those 2-bite brownies you can buy, but I bet they taste a whole lot better. I haven't made these yet, but I'll definitely skip the chill.

Fudgy nuggets works for me.

They look delightful on that pretty plate...makes them look elegant and mysterious, doesn't it? It's been fun checking in with you each week with this little group. Another year of it...best to you in 2011!
