Tuesdays With Dorie ‘Rewind’ – Brown Sugar Almond-Shortbread Cookies

by Jessica on September 30, 2008

Coffee & Cookies = Yum!

Well… as we speak (or as I type), I’m on the road. The past week has been a whirlwind of wedding madness and I feel like I haven’t spent 5 minutes in my house… or my bed, which I miss. 🙁 But, we finally married T off and now it’s back to work! On to Pittsburgh for another week and then I’ll finally be back in Texas! Yep, another week away… I feel I’ll miss TWD’s October 7th recipe and that makes me sad.

I really, really, really wanted to make the Creme Brulee that was chosen by Mari of Mevrouw Cupcake for this week’s TWD recipe, but I didn’t have a torch (nor did I need to spend the money on it) and I didn’t really have the time or extra mouths to push it off on. 🙂 So… since a lot of us didn’t have the dreaded torch, we were offered the ‘Rewind’ option to make a past TWD choice. Whee!! I excitedly chose the Brown Sugar Pecan-Shortbread cookies and as I started getting ready to make the dough, I realized that I didn’t have cloves or pecans. Luckily, I had cinnamon and almonds. Thus, what you see before you is the Brown Sugar Almond-Shortbread Cookie, originally chosen by Laurie of Quirky Cupcake. 🙂 Enjoy!!

I love the adaptation! That looks fantastic! I hope you get home soon! I know what it’s like to be homesick (I have been homesick for NYC for over a year now! Haha!)

They look so beautiful and really pop on that plate. Great choice for a rewind!

no kidding.. brown sugar and almond sounds great too! I feel like i could nibble on a whole pile of these. And such a pity I never got to make this recipe too. Joined after it was chosen. But perhaps i’ll do my own rewind one of these days!

I love your pictures. I too made these yesterday and they turned out extremely flat and didn’t resemble squares or the picture in Dorie’s book at all! At least they tasted good. Yours look awesome.

Your squares look good…so many didn’t turn out.
