smoky hearts

I’ve been intrigued by the Smoky Heart roll-out cookie recipe since I bought Dorie’s Cookies. With cocoa, smoked almonds (which I always have at home because they are amazing in salads), smoked paprika and only a touch of sugar, these hearts straddle the line between sweet and savory. They are in the “cocktail cookies” section of the book, and Dories says they pair well with bourbon, Armagnac or scotch. If you wanted to bring them more over to the sweet side, I do think they’d be quite good with an extra tablespoon or so of 10x added to the dough. If you want to take them even more savory, use a hot paprika (or combine what you have with a pinch of cayenne) and an extra touch of salt.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us if you haven’t already.

  1. My husband said they could be a little more spicy. I like your suggestion of hot paprika. I wasn’t sure about these but they are starting to grow on me.

  2. Your cookies all look so cute. Mark made short work of these, he loved them. They are on the repeat list…who knew?

  3. These cookies were good, weren’t they, and the smoked almonds were a revelation.
