Only gave 4 stars because the recipe is very fussy about keeping everything cold, but the instructions do not stress this. Weigh the ingredients. Despite my skepticism, I melted the butter. It was fine. Chill the dough overnight. Use a COLD cookie sheet EVERY time. Using a regular spoon to scoop out the dough onto the scale is much easier than an...

I grated some freshly grated nutmeg into the cream while it was heating up and attempted to shave some fresh truffle into it. (By truffle, I mean the the thing that grows in the ground, not the chocolate!) After I passed the potatoes through the food mill, I drizzled a little bit of truffle flavored olive oil over the hot potatoes. When I added the...
