This week’s post is going to be a short one. I started a new job in March and it has been keeping me very busy, to the point that French Fridays with Dorie is just about the only thing that gets me into the kitchen each week. And this week I did not spend any time in the kitchen at all because I was traveling, but I did manage to get the Cocoa Sables checked off a few weeks ago.
I am sad to say that these were not among our favorite recipes. Dorie is the one who actually introduced me to sables and I have made the classic recipe from her Baking book on several occasions. They are simple, buttery, and delicious. Maybe that’s why I had high expectations for the cocoa sables. I just expected more flavor and these didn’t really deliver. Maybe it was my cocoa powder, who knows.
Just one last quick note, despite my many efforts to trouble shoot this issue, I still have difficulty posting comments on some of the blogger hosted blogs which do not allow Name/URL comments. One week it works, the next week it doesn’t work at all, no matter how many times I try. Please know that I am reading and enjoying your lovely posts. I have so much fun with this group and genuinely enjoy seeing what you lovely ladies (and a few gentlemen) are up to each week.
