I am going to make these cookies look beautiful if it kills me.
They taste so amazingly delicious that it's sad they look so disgusting.
We went to Canter's Deli last week and I tried some of theirs. Mine totally taste better, which is weird to say about an institution like Canter's. And I feel wrong for saying it. But their version is dry and crusty and mine have a hint of orange. I totally win.
The Canters version does look really cute though. Almost a totally enveloped jelly center. Very little jelly peeks through. Perhaps that is the trick.
I tried thicker dough, less jelly, more overlapping twist.
I got one good one. OK, maybe two if you stretch. Hard.
Who's up for eating ANOTHER batch?
