The Cookie Trials, part 4

Ganache-filled shortbread pillows, Trial Number Three, was a tiny batch of eight cookies, which kind of fell apart before I could photograph them. (The crumbs were tasty, though).

Trial Number Four is approaching the goal. I used 1/16"guide strips to roll the dough, and 1/4" strips to roll the ganache (yes, I rolled it out and cut it--used cocoa powder to dust the rolling pin), and everything came out much nicer.




On the plus side: Crisp, golden, good ratio of chocolate to cookie, even size


On the improvement list: cookie part is a little TOO flaky. Extremely fragile while hot, and still fragile when cooled. Ganache is more bitter than I'd like--maybe use sugar instead of cocoa to roll it out?. Still some gaps in dough showing the filling. Possibly this isn't a bad thing.



I think I'm ready for human trials.

I like the way you think! No great surprise there, since we often think alike, but I heartily approve your entire plan.

Um...tomorrow's not Mother's Day, is it? Thinking of crowded restaurants, but perhaps not a worry. As I recall, I got the existing mold pan at Michael's. Or maybe Craft Warehouse? Can't find it online to save my soul, which makes me think it's not in production, but I'll persist.
