When I read the choice for this week’s recipe, I was a bit skeptical. Intrigued, sure… but most definitely, skeptical. Pepper and I are not the best of friends and I rarely cook with it, unless of course, Dorie tells me to. She hasn’t steered me wrong before (on any Tuesday or Friday recipe), so I decided to trust her once more. And never one to shy away from a challenge, I rolled these in a bit more Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper before chilling. Daring, right? 😉
She didn’t disappoint and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved these little shortbread cookies. I halved the recipe and got exactly 24 sweet bites. Now… to pass them off before I eat every single one! Any takers??
Many thanks to Tia of Buttercream Barbie for hostessing this week. She’ll have the recipe listed on her site, and for a list of this week’s bakers, check out the ‘Leave-Your-Link’ post over on Tuesdays With Dorie! Next week… Flip-Over Plum Cake!
