For December's Mac Attack Challenge, Mac Tweeters went Savory Sweet for the holidays!! It took me quite awhile to complete the challenge and I scrambled to post this on time! I had a few options which I kept in mind and this included chili macs, curry macs and allspice macs among others. I was also intriqued by Jamie's suggestion to prepare the macs as hors d’oeuvres (isn't that interesting?). After much deliberation, I went with Ginger (a feisty spice) and Coffee (a perfect flavor for cold winter days) with French Pastry Cream filling (a sweet and sophisticated custard perfect for the holidays - or so I imagine - I don't celebrate Christmas and its summer all year round here!!)

I made half the recipe and ended up with one log and about 20 cookies. They are buttery and sandy and my eldest daughter can't get enough of it! Mine turned out golden brown although Dorie's sablés look creamy and pale. We love them anyways! And they make your kitchen smell super terrific too!!
The bejeweled log. So pretty!!
