Some Days You’ve Just Got To Bake! TWD: Dorie’s Christmas Spice Cookies

Hey Tuesday! Its a great day to bake!

HEY TUESDAY! Its a great day to BAKE! Today I’m sharing my results of Dorie Greenspan’s Christmas Spice Cookies along with the other bakers at Tuesdays with Dorie

Some Days You've Just Got To Bake!

This recipe starts with Dorie’s Do-Almost-Anything Vanilla Cookie Dough and then you add spices to the mixture. I ate a lot of the unbaked dough; it was delicious. Tons of beautiful, wonderful butter!

Dorie Greenspan's Christmas Spice Cookies are in her new book Dorie's Cookies.

Try the recipe yourself by picking up a copy of Dorie’s new book, Dorie’s Cookies.

I got to use a cookie cutter in honor of National Cookie Cutter Week and I used my new bottle of All-Spice (hard to find in France! I had to order it from England).

I have to say I was not in love with these cookies as much as I truly wanted to be! I found the dough hard to work with (really sticky) and the final cookies lacking the spice I craved.  But any day you bake (and eat cookie dough) is a really, really good day! As we bake our way through the book, there will be 3 more opportunities to try the base recipe again. I’m hoping for a perfect success next round!

Celebrate Cookie Cutter Week, December 1 - 7!

    Such a cute cookie cutter! I am looking forward to trying these ones. That’s too bad the dough was a little hard to work with.
