FFwD: Salted Butter Break-Ups


Dorie Greenspan is a genius. Period. I am so glad that I joined the blogging group "French Friday's with Dorie" because otherwise I don't think I would have ever starting replicating her recipes. I am a big fan of the salty/sweet combination that you get from certain foods - this cookie being one of them. I have to admit that I was hesitant to try this recipe because if I want a cookie, I want something covered in chocolate and over the top sweet, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one! When you bite into it, you taste the butter and the salt - oohhhhh so good!

This recipe requires only 6 ingredients - all of which you probably have in your house. I like it already.














It is a simple dough that comes together in a food processor and chills in the fridge for an hour.














It is a very rustic cookie so you don't have to be exact when rolling out the dough.














In a half hour, it bakes up into a beautiful large cookie and you break apart. Hence, the name of the cookie. It's not rocket science people.

If you remember my post on Savory Cheese and Chive Bread, I am not allowed to post the FFwD recipe here on my blog. You need to buy the amazing cookbook, Around my French Table, or e-mail me to send you the recipe.

Tutti Mangia!

I'm so glad you liked these. These sweet-salty combination is one of my favorites too and I love the way it plays in these break-ups.

I love your photos. I agree, they are delicious and
the taste is a bit different. Hubby and I enjoyed
them, but Tricia's family were not too impressed.
I was hoping to share some of the calories with
them, but it didn't work out that way.

Laughing at your comment about Dorie being a genius - AGREED !! Also agree that whoever created the concept of "cooking blog communities" is also a genius. I have never had so much fun trying to recipes. Regardless of the results...I am always happy with the adventure. Great post.

I loved this cookies and I'm thrilled I can put them together easily without any special ingredients. This kind of rocks if there are any impromptu guests!
