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.
No, that's not a misspelled street address, though wouldn't that be a great name for my future goat farm and bakery? You know, some day when I'm rich and I can buy a chunk of land, raise dairy goats (and cows, too, because I love cows) and make all sorts of cheeses? And breads? And other stuff? Sigh.......
For the month of November, the Tuesdays With Dorie rules are a bit more relaxed - we can bake and post any of the month's recipes on any Tuesday we like. You can find a list of all this month's recipes here, if you're curious.
One of the suggested accompaniments to the "Rockin' Moroccan Salsa" I posted the other day was fresh pita bread. I didn't have any in the house, and I didn't want to go back out to the store, and as I thought about what I could use instead, the outraged voice inside my head told me not to DARE substitute something else, but to just go on and MAKE my own pita bread already!
