Salted Butter Break-Ups


Salted Butter Break-Ups plus Spinach and Ricotta Cannelloni

Last week I had to wheedle and cajole my family to try the “muesli” pasta.
This week I struggled to take photos of the finished products!
They broke bits off the Salted Butter Break-Up.
They picked at the melted cheese covering the cannelloni.
They actually had everything dished out while I was still taking the clothes off the line!

Salted Butter Break-Ups

How incredibly easy were these to make?
Process the flour, sugar, sea salt, butter and a touch of water.
Shape the finished product into a square, wrap in plastic and refrigerate…

After an hour or so in the fridge, roll out between wax paper to 1/4 inch thick.
Then brush on egg yolk and decorate!

After baking for 30 or so minutes, I noticed my break-up was a bit browner than I would have liked on the bottom.
Even though it looked… well… burnt.
It didn’t taste burnt. It tasted amazing!

But then I had to listen to my husband complain about feeling sick from eating so much of it!
(As he went back again and again for more).

Check out the French Fridays with Dorie to see a whole bunch of salty butter break-ups!

  1. I really liked these. Funny how your husband gave himself a stomachache by eating so many cookies! The cannelloni look awesome too.

  2. How funny about your husband! They didn’t last long in my house either. Your pattern on the break-ups is so pretty! And your cannelloni looks so delicious.

  3. I’ve seen so many positive reviews about this – sounds simple yet very delicious

  4. Ah – isn’t it amazing how we are responsible for the males need to over-imbibe? As long as we can take it with good humor, I guess all is good.
    The cannelloni look amazing. I am sure those didn’t last long!

  5. Both recipes look delightful- thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to try the break-ups. I am a carb-aholic, even when I’m not pregnant! LOL! I’ll be back for sure. πŸ™‚

  6. I think your cookie looks great! A “too much cookie” induced stomachache? I think that’s the good kind! =D Great post!

  7. I love that you had trouble getting a photo as your family was so excited about what you made!

  8. I love the color and your pics!
    I’m still playing FFWD catchup, so I made the cheese bread this week.

  9. LOL! I have some of those at home, too! They sabotage everything:) My husband ate a ton of the cookie pieces and I had to make him wrap a couple of pieces for the girls’ lunch the next day!
    I agree, it was easy and flavorful. I am leery about using salt in desserts, but Dorie has me converted:)
    Your pasta can appear at my table any time:)

  10. Oh my…these look like trouble! πŸ™‚ I need to make these NOW! πŸ˜‰

    • By trouble, I didn’t mean that they will be hard to make…I meant that I won’t be able to control myself and will end up like your husband, with a belly ache! *LOL*

  11. What at lovely dinner your family had – I wish I was eating at your house this week ! Too funny about them nibbling before the photo shoot. I literally had to yell (you know what I mean) about not touching till I got a shot…and I was standing right there the whole time πŸ™‚ And you had me chuckling about the “muesli” pasta. Hysterical. And yummy….

  12. Love the pretty pattern you etched on your cookie! My edges were a little too brown, but I sacrificed myself and ate them πŸ˜‰
