{TWD} Palets de Dames: Lille Style



Woo hoo! Dorie Greenspan's new cookbook "Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere" is out and this is the first Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from the book! I am hoping I can stick with this and complete the recipes in the book. If you have liked my posts in the past and thought "hey, I would like to do some baking!" Now would be a good time to jump on the bandwagon. You can click that link right up there are go to my amazon affiliate link to purchase it!

The first recipe selected from Baking Chez Moi was Palets de Dames: Lille Style. These little cookies were the perfect little snack. My kiddos snagged a couple of naked cookies while I was frosting the rest and gave a big thumbs up. There was some chill time for these but they were a snap to put together. The frosting had 3 ingredients and was quick to whip up. The cookies baked and cooled quickly. Apparently I have a problem with sprinkles though. I took a dozen of these to a sweet friend who has been letting my son stay with her after school until I can get him. Her daughter said she ate one before school and that they were delicious! I am hoping to share more of the treats I bake from this book. Don't worry, my family will not be like the cobblers children that have no shoes. They will still get plenty of treats but we do want to share.

Make sure to check out Tuesdays with Dorie and the LYL to see how other bakers around the world liked this recipe!

  21. Your cookies are too cute! I love that you frosted the bottoms. The recipe on Amazon and in my book, both say to frost "one side" of the cookie. I just assumed it would be t he top.
