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.
