Tuesdays with Dorie with K: Apple Kuchen

 Or in this case, without K as we are in the middle of the high school search process. This is the sort of sweet that I prefer: lots of fruit, with a buttery crust. I pretty much stayed with the recipe, though subbed some quince for apple, as I had some on hand. Plus, quince adds a fun flavor. I also used dried cherries, leftover from an earlier Tuesdays with Dorie project.

The verdict: I'll make this again, preferably on a day that the temperature does not hit 96 in San Francisco. With, of course, no air conditioning.

Tuesdays with Dorie with K: Jam Filled Sandwich Cookies

Time for more Tuesdays with Dorie
"They chose something I want to make!" Indeed, K had bookmarked this page in the galley when it first arrived.  Our only question was which kind of jam to use. The hazards of a canning habit meant that he had about eight to choose from. K opted for raspberry.

That decision made it was time to fill the cookies.

They were then covered with a second cookie to create a sandwich. The finished cookies were a big hit.

A hint of the jam inside.

The verdict: K wants to try two different flavors of jam next time. Luckily, we have plenty on hand!
