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.
