French Fridays with Dorie recipe for the month. I thought they would make a fabulous addition to my cookie plate this year. After reading Phyl's review I was eager to try them myself.
The dough came together easily. Dorie suggests waxed paper to roll out the dough between before refrigeration. I have consistently forgotten waxed paper at the grocery store for the last month. Instead I used two silpats and rolled the dough between it and then wrapped it in plastic wrap. It worked great.
My smallest cookie cutter was just a round cutter. It's not as fun and fancy as the scalloped cutter would have been but my cookies would have been huge had I used it. With the leftover scraps I rolled them into little balls and baked them for some petite rounds.
The flavor of the cookie is really nice. It's not overpowering with cinnamon and would be a great cookie to go with coffee (not that I drink coffee). This year, it's a great cookie to balance my cookie plate.
