Miette’s Simple Chocolate WafersKelsey Banfield
Last week I was in San Francisco and visited a whole bunch of my favorites places there. There are so many amazing restaurants in the city and I can’t get enough of the open skies and delicious weather. One of my favorite bakeries in the area happens to be Miette. It is in the Ferry building and is so beautiful. They made the most gorgeous macaroons and luscious cakes. One thing I tried while I was there were these tasty chocolate wafers. Amazingly, the tasted a lot like oreo cookie wafers, only much better.
Luckily, I have the Miette cookbook so I was able to recreate these at home. However, I don’t have the fringed cookie cutter so I took a photo of the ones from the store instead. Here is the recipe so you can recreate these delicious butter chocolate wafers at home and love them!
Miette Simple Chocolate Wafers
adapted from Miette
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 pinch Kosher salt
8 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 tablespoons honey
1. In a small bowl stir the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.
2. In an electric mixer beat the butter, sugars, and honey until light and fluffy. Turn the mixer to low and sift in the dry ingredients. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least two hours.
3. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out the dough to 1/4-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out desired shapes. Sprinkle them with granulated sugar. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until cooked through. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before eating!
