I don’t even like beer most of the time, but this cookie recipe is a keeper.
You start with two bottles of beer then boil it down with honey until you only have 1/3 cup of liquid. Then mix it with standard cookie ingredients, plus ground coriander and orange zest.
If you enjoy the subtleties of a good brew, as Michael does, you’ll appreciate how the orange and coriander work with the flavors in the Belgian white.
