Usually my posts include me stating that my hubs doesn't really like something that went into a recipe and then is usually pleasantly surprised. Well, the tables have turned. Since I despise black olives I was hesitant to try these. However, I popped one of these tender little cookies in my mouth and I was pleasantly surprised! :) My girl said they tasted like sugar cookies and my little man just kept eating them. I did think they needed more salt; I thought the olives would make them saltier. I also kept wondering how these would taste with dried blueberries instead of the olives...hm I see another post in my future.
One of the required ingredients was the yolk of a hard boiled egg. Lucky for me, Easter was Sunday so I had plenty of hard boiled eggs to work with. You had to grate the yolk to be added into the mix later. That was rather messy but done easily enough. I threw the wrapped logs in the freezer and baked them later yesterday afternoon.
This morning I took a bag of these down to our local coffee shop to hand out as samples. Later this afternoon a friend of mine that works there said they were delicious and people would taste one and take another. I don't think they will last long. :) Make sure to check out the LYL to see how other French Fridays with Dorie cooks liked this recipe. You can find the recipe in Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan.
