TWD DC Goat Cheese and Chive Cookies



These were pretty good snacks. I found that they did not hold up very well, so would be best for eating day of.

TWD BCM Pistachio and Berry Gratins



I love pistachios. Every time I eat a baked good or ice cream with pistachio I always wonder why I don't use them more often. These were so balanced and perfect. I used a mix of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries.

TWD DC Chocolate-haystack cookies



I've been eating these for breakfast. I think that says it all.

TWD DC Lemon sugar cookies



These were very good and very easy. My husband said he would have liked more lemon flavor, but I thought they were just fine. Maybe a glaze for a little more lemon oomph?

TWD BCM Black-and-white marbled madeleines



Dorie really does give great tips. My madeleines always turn out great. I made my chocolate batter a little thicker by accident and was nervous, but they turned out very well.

TWC DC Salted Chocolate-Caramel Bars


I've made enough Dorie recipes now that many of her techniques and base recipes feel familiar. The shortbread base on these cookies is one of those. These were a big hit. I can't stop eating them and am frankly surprised that I still have some in the kitchen.
