the whole repurposing craze has caught me. i just love it-the idea of turning useless stuff into a money maker; i'm all about that. honestly, i do like the idea of using things in a new or unusual way. we hung a wire window planter box up on our kitchen wall. ok, not exciting. except we hung it upside down and use hooks to hang pots from it. fascinating stuff, i know! what does it have to do with cookies? nothing. it was the repurposing thing, i went off track here...
so, back to the story, as a tuesdays with dorie baker, i often make things i would not generally make for just the two of us. it is often way more than we can eat. sometimes i cut the recipe in half or freeze half. for a recent baking challenge, we made a crostata. it called for a rich, short crust that was loaded with almonds and sesame seeds. since i wanted to make a smaller tart, i had a big ball of dough leftover and i froze it for another day. a recent get together of local food bloggers seemed like a good time to use it since it would make wonderful bite sized linzer cookies. read all about the tart and see the recipes by clicking here.
a quick sprinkle of sanding sugar gave the cookies a nice sparkle.
