This week's recipe was Salted Butter Break-ups. Think of a buttery sweet sugar cookie with a hint of salt. Using the blessed food processor, this recipe came together in no time. You basically process chilled butter into flour, sugar, and kosher salt and then bake (after eating bites of raw dough). After chilling the dough, you roll it out and give it a quick egg wash and then use a fork to make a crosshatch pattern to give the cookie a nice finish.
One of the things I love about FFwD recipes is that they always make my house smell delicious and usually of butter. This week was no different. Again, I really enjoyed this week's recipe. This sweet and salty cookie comes from the Western part of France and was a nice deviation from the usual American sugar cookie. Serving the cookie whole and letting guests break off their own portions, as Dorie recommends, would be a great ending to a casual dinner. I think I'll definitely make this again.
