After cooking for more than thirty years, I’m still amazed how some of the most simple and unpretentious ingredients can come together and yield something amazing.
Case in point…
Tomatoes, Basil, Garlic plus Olive Oil = the best tomato sauce for a plate of pasta. Or replace cooking all of the above and add some burrata mozzarella and you got the best Caprese salad this side of Italy. Dough, tomatoes, basil, olive oil – Hello pizza!
I can go on and on…
So it was no surprise that this weeks choice for our French Fridays with Dorie was one of those recipes that with something as simple as combining butter, flour, water, sugar and salt you get one the most addictive cookie we have eaten in our house to date.
Well, the first time I made it was Monday. Since then, I have made it a total of six times – SIX, in less than FOUR days. If you do the math, it will tell you how popular that cookie was around these parts.
We cannot keep it around long enough to make it pass the day it was made!
