Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies

Cornmeal Shortbread Cookies are this weeks selection for Tuesdays With Dorie.  These cookies are made like regular shortbread cookies but they have a twist, cormeal. They are very buttery with an added crunch. They can best be discribed as different.  They were not my favorite type of shortbread cookie but my husband loved them.  Thanks to Valerie of Une Gamine dans la Cuisine for hosting this week.

TWD A Tourtely Apple Tart

This weeks recipe for Tuesdays With Dorie is A Tourtely Apple Pie and it was chosen by Jeanette of The Whimsical Cupcake.  This a basic two crust tart or in my case pie.  I didn't have a 9 inch tart pan so I just made it in a pie plate. I loved the crust, it's like eating a cookie. The filling is cooked before adding it to the crust.  You then add browned butter, raisins and ground almonds. The pie filling is more like applesauce than a regular apple pie filling.  My husband loved the pie but I think I still prefer a regular apple pie.  Thanks Jeanette for hosting this week.

TWD Vanilla Ice Cream Tart

Jessica of Domestic Deep Thought of the Day is the host of this weeks Tuesdays with Dorie and her pick was Coffee Ice Cream Tart.  I'm not a big fan of coffee ice cream so I went with vanilla ice cream. Kinda of plain and safe I know, but boy was it good. The tart crust is made with almonds and brown sugar and the combination with the melted chocolate was yummy.  I did add a tablespoon of kahlua to kick it up just a bit. I will definitely be making this again, it will be great for summer.  Thanks Jessica.
