Booze month continues on Cookie Thursday is a Thing.
I was tempted to do a rose cookie but then I found a recipe for a red wine double chocolate cookie.
Of course I added to the recipe.
How could I not?
I was afraid that the flavor the red wine would not come through when I added the 1/2 cup the recipe called for.
Definitely not enough.
I decided to make a red wine syrup instead.
I added a bit of sugar to two cups of red wine and reduced it on the stove until it was reduced by 50%.
The cookie dough continued.
And then, in the middle of a meeting for the hospital, I mistakenly set the oven to 275 degrees, not 375.
And I wondered why the cookies were taking longer to bake.
And when they were done they were the consistency of fudge.
Am I a clumsy genius?
We’ll see if anyone notices the difference between the 2 cookies.
As always, Cookie Thursday is a Thing is about experimentation.
