FFwD - Salted Butter Break-ups

Buttery, salty, slightly sweet.  What else needs to be said. We loved it and will make it again and again. Dorie recommends sel gris but all I had was pink Himalyan salt. The pink salt made me think of David Lebovitz's Strawberry Frozen Yogurt and I had one bag of strawberries left in the freezer from last year's strawberry harvest. The cold tanginess was the prefect backdrop for the salty sweetness. Stop by the French Fridays site to see what everyone else has to say!

  4. That yogurt looks yummy, Lola. I also used Himalayan pink salt. The break-ups are definitely keepers.

  6. I substituted with some coarse black lava salt, but it worked wonderfully! I also have the pink Himalyan, so maybe frozen yogurt is in order....that sounds interesting!

  7. This cookie goes with anything cold and sweet. But strawberry cold and sweet seems perfect!

  9. Looks great! I may have to check out the strawberry yogurt recipe. One of the grocery stores here has strawberries 5 for $5 and yogurt would be a perfect use of them.

  17. Love the pink salt :) I always like it in chocolate so a great idea to try it with the break-ups!

  18. Great idea to serve with frozen yogurt. Did the pink salt change the color of your cookie?

  19. I am feeling silly because I never even heard of Pink Himalayan salt. But I like it already :) The combo of the frozen berried and the warm cookie sounds lovely. And love that David Lebovitz. He is a hoot. Nana and I found out about him when I googled a restaurant we visited last year by the Bon Marche in Paris. We could not recall the name and came across an article (hilarious, of course) about the bistro written by David. And the rest is history. It truly is a "sweet life"....

  25. I love the idea of serving the cookies with frozen yogurt! It would be an interesting experiment to make the cookies with different types of salt to see how the taste changes. Too bad my willpower is so low - I would tear through the cookies much too quickly!
