Tartine Baking Project: Recipe #23 Walnut Cinnamon Slices

While I was very excited for this Holiday Bake-Along series, it provides some added pressure for me to make an end product that I think it worthy of comparison, and not a total flop!  I chose this first recipe to share because it seemed simple enough, and everyone loves cookies over the holidays.  (Everyone!)  The combination of walnuts and cinnamon seem like a good team for any December holiday celebration.

On my Christmas list?  A beautiful wooden cutting board!

The dough came together pretty quickly, and it’s safe to say the cookies were going to be delicious, seeing how testing the flavor at this point was a necessity. 

After some time just chillin’ in the fridge, the dough was ready to slice up.  I fought the urge to actually grab a ruler and measure the width, length, and height that was suggested in the recipe.  At first.  I was afraid something had gone wrong, because I did the quick math and figured out I was going to have a lot more cookies than was said you’d get from a single batch…I busted out the ruler, and yes, I can eyeball 1” x 2” x <!— /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:Cambria; panose-1:2 4 5 3 5 4 6 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:auto; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:3 0 0 0 1 0;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:”“; margin-top:0in; margin-right:0in; margin-bottom:10.0pt; margin-left:0in; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:”Times New Roman”; mso-ascii-font-family:Cambria; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:Cambria; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-hansi-font-family:Cambria; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:”Times New Roman”; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} —>


Slathering with egg wash, then coating in sugar.  Maybe I was a little excessive with these two steps?  The edge of these cookies was VERY sugary.

Ready for the oven!

As I mentioned my projected/actual yeild was a bit off: The yield of these cookies in the recipe said you’d have 36 cookies, I ended up with around 100 cookies.  Crazy, right?  They’re small, which means they are very tricky and dangerous.  It’s easy to eat three, and head back into the kitchen literally five minutes later for another three.  It’s scary/amazing/wonderful/indulgent of us, but we polished off nearly all of them this week with very little help from visitors.  Ugh…I had grand plans of wrapping them up in cute bunches and giving them to neighbors as a “Welcome to the Holidays” type of gift.  That didn’t happen.  What did happen, you ask?  Some time in the gym, strictly devoted to burning some cookie calories.

I know the week can be so very busy, so please bake over the weekend if you have some time and continue to share your pictures with me here and on Facebook!  Grab the PDF!

This was just the first of the Bake-Along series!  I am SO excited to share the next recipe on Monday!  Happy Friday!  Happy Baking!
