These cookies caught my attention when I first saw them over at Every Last Cookie. I was intrigued by the use of Chambord or Cassis to make a cookie and knew immediately that I would have to try these. This is a Martha Stewart recipe that originally called for Creme de cassis. Lizzie over at Every Last Cookie substituted Chambord, and so did I. You can find the recipe here on Lizzie's blog. You should definitely check out her blog, if you haven't already. She is baking her way through Martha Stewart's new cookie book.
Notes/Results: This is easily one of the most unique cookies I have ever made. It has a biscuit-like texture, with a mild fruity taste, and is topped off perfectly with sanding sugar. They are somewhat addictive. The only downside is that the dough needs to chill for at least one hour. After chilling, the dough needs to be rolled out and cut into 3" squares. I didn't have an easy time with the dough, but the cookies turned out just fine. I think the dough needs to chill longer than one hour. I liked this cookie, but they are a little more work than what I usually do for a cookie. I'd like to think I would make them again, especially for a party or a group of adults. They are really tasty!
Head on over to see what these fellow cookie monsters baked up this week!
