Tuesdays with Dorie...on Wednesday!

Yes, it's Wednesday. Not Tuesday. But I'm sure you knew that already! This week, Holly of Phe/MOM/enon chose 15-Minute Magic: Chocolate Amaretti Torte to bake. Here's my problem. Being the procrastinator that I am, I waited until, oh, yesterday to even read the recipe. Shocker, but I didn't have all the ingredients needed to make the torte. Well, I was missing one...the amaretti cookies. A quick trip to the closest grocery store did not help me with my problem. Upon further investigation at the TWD site, you can apparently come across these cookies at Starbucks and World Market as well, neither of which I thought to visit yesterday. You can also make your own, which I did not have time for. So, while I had totally planned on baking with the TWD bakers this week, it was not meant to be. However, I am drooling over next week's selection so I will try to plan better, lol! Check out what the other TWD bakers did with this week's recipe -- it looks great!!! I'll have to scout out the amaretti cookies and bake it when I can. :)

I am worried about a similar issue with this week's recipe. I need to get the bread (challah or brioche) in time for it to get stale and I already feel like I'm running behind!

You MUST make next week's recipe...it's amazing!! And don't worry about getting brioche or challah, I didn't use either and it was still amazing!
