In case you didn’t think Dorie Greenspan’s sweets were well-represented here (I’ve only made about 300 of them), I’m thrilled to tell you that Tuesdays with Dorie, the BCM edition kicks off today! Baking Chez Moi: Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere is Dorie’s latest gem. It’s a huge book filled with recipes– some are French classics, some are French twists and some are not-so-French, but her Parisian friends love them. We’ll be baking from BCM on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, and Laurie, Jules and I hope we’ll see a lot of new bakers join in the fun! The recipes are awesome, the rules are relaxed and there will be group nominations each month to decide what we’ll make– fun!. (Don’t worry– we’re not abandoning Baking with Julia. In fact, we’d love to have more folks jump in as we move through the second half of that book.)
Now, onto Palets de Dames, our first recipe! Palet means “puck” in French. While they may be shaped like little disks, there’s nothing hockeypuck-ish about these little cake-cookies. They’re soft and flavored with vanilla and are a perfect tea or coffee break treat. The cookie dough is actually like making a simple cake batter and the icing is just whisked together. Not too hard, although somehow I did manage to make a little screw up. I think I was actually supposed to dip their bottoms in glaze and serve them upside-down. I did the opposite. Oh well…ce n’est pas grave, as they say. They’re still dainty and cute, and I thought they deserved a little sparkly bling on top of the sweet glaze to celebrate our first BCM post.
