These nutty, buttery, shortbread cookies are historical! How? Well, they were the very first Tuesdays with Dorie recipe way back on the first Tuesday of this year. Back then you could count the members of TWD on one hand and now the membership is around 300 somewhere.
Making these shortbread involved mixing the cookie dough and then chilling the day before cutting it into squares to bake. In the shortbread section of the cookie chapter of Baking, Dorie Greenspan offers some helpful tips on making the perfect shortbread.
You can find the recipe for these cookies on the blogs of one of the original members, Brown Eyed Baker.
