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.
The recipe can be found here. To check out how other Tuesdays with Dorie participants liked the recipe, visit here. You can buy the book here.
