Goat Cheese and Chive Cookies

Goat Cheese and Chive Cookies | AZ Cookbook

Last December, I had the privilege of attending the book luncheon event with Dorie Greenspan at Melissa’s Produce, where Dorie presented her new cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies. At the event, we got to sample a galore of sweet and savory cookies that Melissa’s Produce chefs baked from the book.

Meeting Dorie was special. Besides being charming and very down to earth, Dorie is a baking guru with a wealth of knowledge she was enthusiastic to share in her presentation. I’ve always  been drawn to Dorie’s recipe writing style. It is as if she is watching you as you bake or cook and tells you what could go wrong and how to fix the issue, or what you should expect next and why. The same with Dorie’s new book. It is filled with super baker-friendly, detailed recipes for cookies fit for any occasion.

At home, I ended up marking almost every recipe to try, but I was most attracted to savory cookies (I prefer savory over sweet), aplenty in Dorie’s book.

    January 28, 2017 by
    In my baking class recently, along with other traditional and contemporary  bakes, we made feseli, a flaky flatbread from Azerbaijan. The recipe, published in “Pomegranates & Saffron,” received raving reviews from class participants and I thought to share it on the blog, too. I have a feeling you will love this flatbread, and so will anyone you treat it to....

    Butternut Squash or Pumpkin Preserves
    January 16, 2017 by
    The holidays are over but we still have a pumpkin and a butternut squash sitting on our kitchen counter, waiting for their turn to become something delicious (unless they’ve gone bad already). I will most likely make them into sweet preserves, in which chunks of squash are cooked with  sugar until golden and tender. They are so good! Serve them...
