TUESDAYS WITH DORIE - BRIOCHE RAISIN SNAILS


I have already written up my post but it's disappeared so this is a rewrite. The Brioche Raisin Snails are fabulous! I tasted one slightly warm - really a melt in the mouth bread. (Read that brioche was a favorite of Marie Antoinette).
It was more work than I was expecting - a three step process over 2 days, but well worth it in the long run. I think they will taste best warm so when I take them to the Office tomorrow I'll pop them in the microwave for about 10 secs. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this wonderful club.

How frustrating that you lost your original post! I, too, know this pain! Nevemind ... your snails are pretty fab anyways and the proof is in the eating, not in the writing!

I'm glad you enjoyed your first TWD recipe. We're still trying to finish our snails a couple of days later, and I've found that a short zap in the microwave does indeed make them taste better.

"Melt in the mouth" is the perfect way to describe this brioche dough. It's a keeper!
