Today on French Fridays with Dorie we are celebrating Dorie's birthday with sweets from her new cookbook Baking Chez Moi. With the release of her new cookbook, just 4 days away, Dorie has shared some baking recipes in advance. Palets des Dames, Lille Style; Canneles; and Chocolate Cream Puffs with Mascarpone and Rose Filling. My family picked Palets des Dames, Lille Style for me to make.
This is a soft cake-like batter that needs to be chilled for a least an hour so planning is in order. Dorie suggests 2 teaspoons of dough per cookie. I did not have this handy scoop size so I scooped 2 teaspoons and rolled into a ball.
The cookies cool to room temperature before icing.
Palets des Dames, Lille Style are very pretty cookies. We enjoyed this vanilla cookie with a hint of lemon. My son said that because they were so small that he could eat 8:)
