Who would have thought that a cookie made with duck fat could be so good.
If it had not been for Dorie and French Friday’s, I don’t think I would have ever tried to cook any part of a duck, or use duck fat as an ingredient.
However, I found that it gives everything such a wonderful flavor.
We’ve made potatoes cooked in duck fat that were so delicious, duck confit, and of course, the wonderful cassoulet and now these delicious cookies.
Last night I had some leftover uncooked chicken cutlet that I cut up into small pieces and fried in duck fat. I could not believe how good that chicken tasted, and I thought bacon drippings were fabulous.
The texture of this cookie reminds me of the French sable.
Tricia came over a short time later and I offered her one with out telling her what was in the cookie and the look on her face was amazing.
This will be definitely be added to my list of favorite cookies.
