I thought TWD was a pretty PG-group, but this week’s recipe sounds a little racy. Too much talk about spicy quickies might make me blush.
Ok, so these are just quick to make food processor cookies, flavored with spices and chocolate. No ID required. I read that they weren’t actaully very spicy at all, so I doubled the amount in mine. I used allspice, and doubling it makes it noticable, but it’s not in your face. Ground almonds give the dough cute little speckles.
When my quickies turned out soft instead of crispy, I was kind of confused. Ahhh….seems I didn’t read the recipe intro…the one where Dorie says they are chewy. However, as you can see, her side note about turning them into ice cream sandwiches did not escape me! She’s right, they have the perfect texture for ice cream sandwiches.
