salt and pepper cocoa shortbreads

Chocolate shortbread with a little hit of salt and pepper?  Sounds exotic, but the s&p doesn’t overpower (even though I added 50% more of each than the recipe called for).  It just gives the slightest tickle on your tongue.  I used a little of my precious Aussie pink salt here…love that stuff.  After I baked off what you see here, I put the other half of my dough log into my freezer cookie stash.  I’ve built a good selection in there at this point, and while I must admit that this one may not bring about world peace, it’ll be a nice addition to that massive cookie platter I’ll one day make from all the leftover dough hunks.

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

  1. Cookies look lovely, the pink salt is so beautiful, and the little pepper grinder charming…again, you win this week. Very nice!

  2. I used fancy salt too and I really liked it. These cookies were a bigger hit than I expected.

  3. oooh I love this idea, and also a huge fan of the pink salt 🙂

  4. Great picture, your cookies look terrific!

  5. I eyeballed the pepper, so I’ve been assuming the reason it was so subtle is that I went too light, but perhaps it’s actually the recipe that isn’t daring enough, not me!

  6. beautiful little round cookies!!

  7. I already envy the people who will be invited to eat-up your enourmous cookie-platter one day!

  8. you do everything with such elegance and class. these shortbread look amazing!
