It’s Tuesday. That means cookies! At least the 1st and 3rd Tuesday anyway.  This week’s cookie is a “corked” Breton Galette.  I looked at that name and could not figure our what it meant until I read through the blurb about the cookie. She was wandering through Paris and stopped into a pastry shop that was offering filled galettes.  The indention in the middle was made with a CORK rather than the usual thumb.

As soon as the galettes comes out of the oven press a cork into the center of each cookie.

Well, I didn’t have a cork but I did have a utensil with a bottom about the size of a cork and that worked nicely.

I filled them with some lovely cherry preserves.

 I did make a small change.  I halved the sugar, subbed in Splenda and added about 1/8 tsp of Stevia.

Some of mine came out TOO browned and some weren’t brown enough but that was okay. The Man liked them and that was all that mattered.  Unfortunately I couldn’t eat any because I started the Whole30 program two weeks before.  Oh, well, I can always make them again.

The recipe is on page 291 of Dorie’s Cookies.  If you love, or even like, cookies you really need to get Dorie’s  Book.
