chocolate spice quickies

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.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or read the delightful My Baking Heart, as it was Jessica’s turn to pick again.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. It looks good as an ice cream sandwich! Wears that ice cream so nicely…looks like a Belted Galloway cow, too, and they are oh-so-cute, especially the baby ones! Hope you had a great weekend.

  3. This looks yum! I had missed the chewy thing too.

  4. That’s my kind of ice cream sandwich! Looks delicious!

  8. Racy title, dark and rich flavour, silky ice cream – you’re right. We’ve gone in a whole other direction with this one. Lovely!

  9. Doubling the spices was a good call. IC sandwiches are perfect for these cookies.

  10. Love these as an ice cream sandwich. I got the same racy reaction when I offered them to one of C’s guy friends. 🙂 Thanks for baking along with me, Steph!

  11. Looks great as an ice cream sandwich! I doubled the allspice too, but they still weren’t that spicy and allspice is a pretty hefty spice.

  12. I love a good ice cream sandwich! Such a cute picture as well.
