Palets de Dames, Lille Style | Tuesdays with Dorie

Palets de Dames, Lille Style | Tuesdays with Dorie

Palets de Dames, Lille Style, are small, cake-like vanilla cookies, lightly glazed with a sweet icing.

They are the first recipe the Tuesdays with Dorie group is making from Dorie Greenspan's new book, Baking Chez Moi, Recipes from My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere. When I first found out about this book, I preordered it, sight unseen. I am such a fangirl. In this book, Dorie Greenspan has compiled a collection of simple dessert recipes that represent the various regions of France, where she has lived for almost 20 years.

As always, Dorie makes what might seem complicated completely accessible.

Palets de Dames are a favorite cookie in the patisseries in Lille, a city in northern France, according to the book. They also have various iterations across the country, but the ones in Lille have this lovely pale icing.

These little two-bite cookies are so easy to make and so worth it. Perfect for afternoon tea.

    2. I was thinking the same thing, that they look awfully good! And that it seems like a lot of the TWD bloggers envision them with tea. Mmm...

  2. Ha ha - you have me LOL at your comment about being "such a fan girl". Oh boy- guilty as charged. Not to mention the other folks on this site and elsewhere who adore Dorie. She is certainly pretty darn fabulous and her recipes, as well as her instructions added in- are fabulous. Your cookies look great - love them against that blue plate. Glad to be in on the new adventure with you.

  5. Also pre-ordered the book, and made my first recipe a couple of weeks ago - Mascarpone Mousse To Die For. Actually, the name of the recipe was simply Mascarpone Mousse..... you catch my drift...

    I should blog about it soon....

    I bookmarked this recipe you made, it definitely perked my attention... now I am craving one of these beauties... ;-)
