TWD – Chockablock Cookies


This week's TWD monster cookie recipe was chosen by Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet, and you can find it on page 86 of Dorie's Baking:  From My Home to Yours.  You know, every now and then I feel like I should just bow out gracefully from the Tuesdays with Dorie gang, citing my lack of regular posting.  I don't think I've done more than 2 recipes per month in ages.  Lots of reasons, lots of excuses, good days, bad days, and so on.  But then I bake something and participate and feel a part of a community and I think okay, I can do this.  I really don't want to quit.

Especially when we get to bake fabulous cookies like these.

In the Cookie Jar

Pistachio Praline Popcorn


The September issue of Gourmet magazine is arranged kind of alphabetically.  I've already used two recipes, which is funny, in a way, because though I love my cooking magazines, for some reason I hardly use the recipes.  I get ideas, of course, but I don't necessarily follow the recipes.  This month's is different - there are a lot of them that appeal to me.

This was one of them.
