Today's selection from Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Stephany at Proceed with Caution. A delicious choice I might add!
I didn't follow the recipe exactly as it called for cinnamon and nutmeg. I had both but I also have Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus on my spice rack. I also unintentionally left out 2 cups of oats. So much for being detail oriented and a perfectionist. In my defense I was cleaning house at the same time for a showing tonight.
I wasn't planning on letting the dough sit in the fridge either before baking but the dough was really soft so I was a good girl and followed directions.
I used my Pampered Chef Medium Scoop to make these lovely, perfectly round cookies.
My littlest taste tester helped me out with the beaters. He usually won't take them at all but after a small like he was hooked....for another 4 licks and he was done. He much prefers the done cookies over the batter. Where did that kid come from? My older taster, had she been home from school would have been all over licking the beater!
The first batch came out nicely after 15 minutes. My oven cooks a little slow and I was baking on a Pampered Chef stone which always takes an extra minute or two. The cookies came out light and chewy. I may have to share some with the neighbors though as we are still eating Chocolate Banded Ice Cream Torte!
Now, here is a picture the second day of the torte. Looks much better, yes?
My sister has decided to join TWD also which rocks! Now she and I can bake "together" each week. :)
