This is the first selection from the new book Baked Occasions. After looking through the book, I can say that I am looking forward to some of the recipes- others, I'm not so sure about.
These cookies are familiar to me as "elephant ears" and usually are made quickly and simply with store-bought puff pastry. This was from scratch and the dough comes out melting in your mouth. They really are delicious, but I don't know if I would go through the somewhat drawn out process for such a simple cookies. That being said, the box they are in, is quickly emptying! The addition of the cayenne pepper ( I used ancho chili powder - that's what I had in the house) is a nice, subtle addition that adds an extra zing to the cookies.
You can find the recipe here at Baked Sunday Mornings. Enjoy!
