TWD: Salt and Pepper Cocoa Shortbreads

As I write this, I'm munching away on these delicious cookies. I like to think of these as on-demand cookies. I keep the roll of dough in the fridge, then slice off a few and bake them in the toaster oven while I'm eating dinner.

No fuss, no muss.

I sprinkled the first batch with a little extra sea salt for that crunchy, salty, chocolatey, sweet experience.





A few of the almond slice & bakes came to the party, too.



If someone doesn't like that hint of pepper, you could substitute another spice. Either way, these are tender, melt-in-your-mouth cookies.




This week's hostess was Tia of Buttercream Barbie. She'll have the recipe available on her blog.


On the Tuesdays with Dorie site, there wasn't too much chatter about these. Tune in to see what everyone thought.

I love the idea of the on-demand cookies :) I love the homemade slice-n-bake, too. Your cookies look great!

I must be a failure. I can't even manage to keep frozen cookies more than a week. They disappear. Glad to hear that you have more resolve! Well done.

Look just fine to me. Baking a few at a time would work. If I baked all of them I would EAT all of them.

My problem with leaving a dough log in the fridge is that I start eating slices of the dough, lol. Less work that way. Anyway, yours look great, I wish I'd have tried some with the salt sprinkled on top.
