chocolate-olive cookies
Chocolate-Olive Cookies…I know what you’re thinking. Sounds strange, right? I think so, too, and having made them, I can confirm that is indeed the case. A barely sweet cocoa shortbread-style cookie with chopped cured black olive bits mixed through, this is the last “cocktail cookie” recipe we had left to tick off the list. You get the bitterness from the cocoa and a salty funkiness from the olives, and while they weren’t bad alongside the red wine Dorie recommends to go with, I don’t think I’ll make them again.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Done and done! “Interesting” but yeah, not on my repeat list!

  2. It is funny because I really wanted to like these…I love chocolate and olives but together was just not a perfect match. It as fun to try them though!

  3. I think you need to be an olive lover for this one. I have been pretty hit and miss with the cocktail cookies. I am glad I did not partake in this one. We are on the home stretch with the book now.

  4. Yeah, these ones were interesting to try, but I won’t make them again either.
