Beurrista was created a month ago for the sole purpose of joining an online baking club, Tuesdays with Dorie. You would understand my chagrin, when three days after I contacted them, they posted that they had closed their door to new members. I sent a follow-up email pleading my cause, but it was radio silence on their end. REJECTED by my raison d'etre.
After moping around for a few weeks and suffering a malaise not felt since high school, I googled "online baking club" and found Sweet Melissa Sundays. The club is baking through The Sweet Melissa Baking Book, by Melissa Murphy, chef and co-owner of Sweet Melissa Patisserie in Brooklyn, NY. I will one day a take the two-bridge trip over to her shop, but in the meanwhile, this post is my entry into the club.
The recipe this Sunday, chosen by Lara of The Lab, is Pecan Shortbread Cookies. I had all six ingredients on hand and only needed to finely chop the pecans.
