This week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection was Cottage Cheese Pufflets, chosen by Jacque over at Daisy Lane Cakes. You can find the recipe on her blog.
I didn't love these, but since I made them I have thought of some possible reasons why:
1- I made 6 other desserts on the day I made these- blondies, cupcakes, angel food cake, etc. and these cookies just happened to be the fussiest of the bunch. By the time I got around to rolling them out I was already exhausted and ready for my bake-a-thon to be over.
2- They were super sticky and required lots of chilling and re-chilling time- once again, not what I was looking for on a day when I was in a hurry to get loads of things baked. And since my brain was frazzled I completely spaced the whole idea of using flour to help with the rolling and cutting.
3. I accidentally baked them at 350 degrees instead of 400 degrees. They didn't puff much and took forever to become slightly golden. A few days later I realized that I had been baking all day and didn't change the temperature of the oven. So, I am guessing the lack of temp might have affected how they looked and such.
All that being said, I still had compliments on the taste and I am thinking that if I made them again with the right conditions, I would probably have a better experience. I filled mine with raspberry jam.
