So, so easy…
Oops. Think I hit it twice somehow!
I’m sitting in Borders with my knitting group and they’re oohing and ahing over these…
I could have used even more salt! http://spikebakes.tumblr.com/post/3933777326/salted-butter-break-ups
I loved these… so much fun!
A great week to have such a simple recipe, right? Just keep adding more salt!
Had these as an appetizer with brie…why? You’ll have to read to find out.
Having cheese with anything? Universal answer, why not?! ;-)
So buttery and rich and SIMPLE TO MAKE!
“I think we need to reevaluate fun. Fun is not breaking one of these cookies with a swift punch. Fun is hopping a plane to the Poitou-Charentes region of France, for a tranquil vacation of lounging in the sun, slurping oysters, sipping Cognac, and eating buttery, butter with a pedigree, croissants. Not necessarily in that order or during the same lounging session.” Read my post and you’ll understand!
These were tasty! I used matcha (green tea powder) to turn half of mine green for St. Patrick’s Day! ;-)
They disappeared quickly at our house!
Love love love these too , i had little shapes and the rolled out too :-))
Fun and more , buttery and deliciousness all at once.
Am late again and jus about loading the pics , step by step but should be up in a bit:-)
I’ll post mine next week.
I made mine green for St. Patrick’s day!
Ahem. I tweaked the recipe. Dorie approved though so it’s ok!
boy-howdy, these were good!!
sugar cookies for grown-ups, say I!
Red, I want to leave comments on your blog…but don’t have a wordpress blog (so no account)…is there another way to do this? your cookies look great!
thanks! I don’t think you need to have a wordpress blog, it just asks you for your regular e-mail to leave a comment (I think it helps reduce spam)
I’ve tried to leave a reply too but it says I have to have an account. Your cookies DO look great.
A buttery, flaky, sweet and salty winner :)
Buttery and rich!
I really liked Dorie’s suggestion for serving these. Even though I just broke them up myself.
I really liked these. It’s funny that my favorites from this book are the desserts when I’m much more of a cook than a baker.
So fun to make and easy is such a plus!
So much better than I expected – fun to make & fun to eat!
I loved these. We keep eating the leftovers for breakfast!
I wanted to hate these but they are addictive: http://fakeginger.com/?p=1584
My favorite new cookie!
Everybody loved these and they were fun to make;-)
Here are mine, with the addition of cinnamon salt. SO addictive:
Can we have more interactive desserts? Please, please, please….so fun.
A delicious buttery cookie, that I will be making over and over again! Loved it!
Yeah.. i have made it a total of six times in less than 4 days.. pretty much tells you how this cookie was received at our house… the seventh batch is in the oven as I write this….ADDICTIVE!
I paired these with butterscotch pudding and butter pecans for a dessert platter that is very manly. Yes, MANLY.
I thought of pairing it with a chocolate pudding! But I do think that a butterscotch would be wonderful.
I am doughaphobic so as easy as this dough seems, I’m nervous. I just put the dough in the fridge but had to use 3 or 4 more teaspoons of water than the recipe called for for it to come together at all. I’m nervous. Will report in when I can.
So despite the MANY mistakes I made even with such a simple recipe (the water was cook’s error – never read a recipe upside down), I just took them out of the oven and even the slightly over-cooked edge tastes great. Can’t wait to eat them later dipped in melted chocolate. Will try to post something by Monday. Have to focus on my brother’s 50th bday party now… Have a great weekend everyone.
Sorry! I’m still playing catch-up. I’m going to make the breakups this weekend :)
I’m sooo excited. They looks so good!
No left overs on this one!
These were such a homerun. We LOVED these! Have made them many times and they ship beautifully!!! I rolled extra salt in mine, perfect!! This was a winner.
Great cookie =)
C is for cookie!
I put my own spin on these cookies. I made a Barney Butter Frosting and turned them into Barney Butter and Jelly Break Up Sandwiches :)
They disappear so quickly!
Enjoyed making these and enjoyed the taste of them after they had fully cooled and sat a bit …
This week’s recipe was really fun. It was a treat to have a sweet week. I couldn’t resist adding a little more fleur de sel on the top. Loved the salty, sweet crunch. It was gone in no time!
More-ish for sure!
Loved it! And right on time for a change:)
My family started breaking bits off before I had time to take a photo of the finished product!
These were so good! Definitely making a double batch next time!
So, as it turns out, breaking up is easy to do. Not to mention delicious!
Good, but a little plain for me:
Here’s mine. I love a minimal recipe with lots of subtle flavors.
Split decision. Nana loved and I was a bit disappointed…but only because I expected them to be the best food ever created :)
Mine were delicious… but not all that salty. More/stronger salt next time.
Also, feeling ice cream as a perfect accompaniment.
These were DELICIOUS.
Playing a little catch-up, and BIG NEWS in Katrina’s Cucina!!!
I honestly was so surprised at how good these were!
I couldn’t resist adding a little nutella and a little jam to mine.
I enjoyed the edges of the cookie where it more browned and cooked a bit more then the center. My center was a bit thicker then the rest. My hash marks did stay but did not look anything like the picture in the book. I like the idea of eating it with nutella on top.
My sea salt was a fine grain, so I didn’t pick up the saltiness as much. I’ll just have to make these again using more salt ;) http://chocolatemoosey.blogspot.com/2011/03/french-fridays-with-dorie-salted-butter.html
These are great. Not to sweet, but very satisfying.
A day late, but happy with the results. I love the straight-up butter taste and the hint of salt…My kind of dessert!!
Very nice…and I still can’t decide if it is a cookie or a cracker! http://grandmaskitchentable.typepad.com/grandmas_kitchen_table/2011/03/french-fridays-with-dorie-salted-butter-break-ups.html
Loved it so much I had to do it again. This time I served it for dessert following Beggar’s Linguine. Its a great combo!
Wow, these were really easy to make and very good! I’ll make them again, but use less sugar and a pinch more salt. I broke off a piece and ate it with a slice of Swiss cheese and a handful of grapes…deeeelish!
I made mine Friday but got sidetracked and didn’t post on time. Sorry! I guess I was also sidetracked while making these as I scored mine totally before realizing that I was supposed to put the egg yolk wash on before scoring. Thankfully an easy enough fix…I simply flipped it and started again. I didn’t find scoring with a fork to be a problem as some did. After breaking up I did drizzle a few cookies with carmel sauce and that was quite tasty. Next time I make I am going to make mine thinner as I prefered the crispier edges to the thicker center portions. One thing for sure, there will be a next time!
I think mine “caught” my bad mood LOL — they don’t look pretty, but taste ok: http://bks4maggie.blogspot.com/2011/03/ffwd-salted-butter-breakups.html
I agree with some of the earlier posts about more salt — I’ll try that next time!
Absolutely loved these!! http://www.stephsbitebybite.com/?p=1629
Finally posted, along with the savory cheese & chive bread.
I made these last week but I’m late to the party!
Better late than never!
I’m late, too, but we loved it so much, how could I not post!
I’m so very, very late posting this. But I liked them very much!
I think I can safely say that I’m the most late in posting this. I can’t seem to stop making these! http://onewetfoot.wordpress.com/2011/04/26/grey-skies-and-a-french-fridays-catch-up/
