|DELICIOUS PARISIAN CHOCOLATE BUTTER COOKIES|
In 1 more hour it won't be Friday...I'm trying to hurry. Just made these cookies and doing this quick post. Tomorrow we celebrate Hubby's and No. 2 Son's birthdays...party day at my house. I'm busy baking birthday cakes and other foods, cleaning, doing the yard, getting my hair done, shopping...........so, sorry I'm late with getting my blog up to date.
For these cookies I chopped 72% dark chocolate and added twice the amount...it's my favorite part. Just for fun I rolled the pre-cut longs in sugars or chopped nuts. I doubled this recipe and will use these cookies for our party. Hubby did taste them and agrees with me that they are chocolaty goodness.
Then, for the the kiddies, I baked a double recipe of Vanilla Sable cookies which were rolled in sugars or sprinkles and then topped with ganache and "Easter eggs." These are also wonderful butter cookies. Found Dorie's recipe and write up in the current issues of Fine Cooking, the magazine that has "The Secrets to Lemon Meringue Pie" on the front cover. The flour to butter ratio makes them a little less dense, I like the way the chocolate variety baked better. But they are all tasty and I"m sure the family will enjoy munching on them tomorrow at our party.

I did take a few minutes to look through many of your posts. I will go back and comment on your wonderful baking, but probably not until Monday.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
