These buttery “pucks” or Palets de Dames are cake-like and iced and are a lovely nibble when you’re craving something sweet.

Tuesdays with Dorie Debuts Baking Chez Moi

Today our Tuesdays with Dorie group is adding a second cookbook to our schedules:  Dorie Greenspan’s Baking Chez Moi, just released at the end of October. We’ll be tackling two recipes from Dorie’s latest cookbook each month along with continuing our way through Baking with Julia. The format is pretty laid back, so I’ll try my best to keep up…but even though I’m known for being a prolific poster, I don’t think I’ll be able to squeeze in an additional recipe every single Tuesday. Many of our French Fridays group will be hopping on board, too…especially after we get to that final recipe in Around My French Table next spring.

Palets de Dames

Since not everyone has purchased their cookbooks, we’re starting out with a recipe that was published on Amazon. The soft, buttery dough was mixed then chilled before it was scooped out and baked.

Dorie instructed us to dip the flat bottoms into a mixture of powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and a few drops of lemon juice. I found it easier to use an off-set spatula and frost the rounded tops by hand.

These gems are the perfect tea time snack: two-bite, tender, cakey cookies that won’t last long! Congratulations, Dorie, on your latest accomplishment. If these cookies are any indication, we’re going to have a blast baking through this marvelous cookbook!

Dorie’s recipe can be seen HERE. Check out all the other Tuesdays with Dorie participants take on this recipe HERE.

  1. I’m happy TWD:BCM is only twice a month. Your winter sprinkles are so pretty, Liz. 🙂

  2. Sounds like the baking book is right up your alley Liz! Even though I’m not ready for it yet, I hear your snowflake is timely too-stay warm:@)

  3. Yay! Excited to begin this new adventure with you LIz!

  4. Sounds like a great book ! I think you are going to cook us the excellents recipes from there ! Like this palets de dames ! C’est très bon 😉

  5. Liz!! these Palets de Dames are adorable!! love! and I was going to say .. you are amazing with the posting!! Well, I’ll look forward to Tuesdays with Dorie from Baking Chez Moi (which I totally want) whenever you post!! love these cookies!

  6. they are so neat. That is the first thought that came to my mind. they are like a sugar cookie but with a slightly different feel and flavor. I love them. can’t wait to try them myself.

  7. Love the winter themed toppings (although, I don’t love that it reminds me of the soon to arrive winter weather).
    Cooking and baking through three books is going to be a bit of a juggling act for the next few months for sure! (although, once FFwD wraps up, I am going to need to find another avenue to stretch my cooking skills – I think am going to be sufficiently stretched on baking for a long time to come…)

  8. Hi Liz,
    Your cookie looks really pretty with the snowflake sprinkles.
    So glad to join TWD, and it is going to be a delicious journey!

  9. Wow, this looks like another fabulous book! Can’t wait to see the recipes whenever you post. This palets are so pretty, the snowflakes are such a nice wintry touch 🙂

  10. Lizzy, I’m excited to be baking with TWD through Baking Chez Moi! Here’s to a new adventure! Your cookies look beautiful…I love your little snowflakes! Happy baking!

  11. your cookies look really tempting.. love the small snowflakes.. very cute

  12. So lovely! And so glad that you’re baking along with us. Yay!

  13. I am so glad that you will be joining us! Your cookies are adorable. And though I am not ready for the snow, it surely will not be far off.

  14. Loving the first recipe of the new book. Looks delish, a lot like a shortbread?

  15. Ooh- I have those sprinkles and had not thought to use them but will for the upcoming holidays. So glad to hear that you are trying to keep up as well (and you are a posting/social media rock star !!) as I am hopeful Nana and I can do so until we complete AMFT. One is do-able (most weeks….) but I am going to be doing the A game to handle two. Good thing Dorie’s recipes are so darn delicious. And that the BCM does not appear to use kumquats, red squash or other elusive ingredients 🙂

  16. Happy that we will be baking together, this looks like a lot of delicious fun. I love your winter
    decorations, very pretty.

  17. Beautiful cookies! I love the winter-themed decorations though like some of the others, am not quite ready for the real stuff! I’m new to TWD and looking forward to baking with everyone.

  18. Awww, perfect litle snowflake cookies! My book is still on its way, so I was glad that this week’s recipe is online. ETA for the book was Monday – not here yet!

  24. Hi Liz, I have that book on my list, it looks wonderful. The cookies are beautiful and would be prefect for Christmas or New Years even.

  25. These cookies are beautiful! Perfect with a cop of tea!

  26. Simple yet such an elegant cookie. I have a hard enough time doing a
    post once a week, let alone every day like you do.

  27. These cookies are gorgeous. I am asking for that cookbook for Christmas. Fingers crossed. Of course, I have a bad habit of just buying myself presents too. I might not be able to wait.

  28. Oh, I just love those cookies with those little snowflakes! So cute. I could not get my white ones to show decently so I added some colored sprinkles. But from now on, those snowflakes are the deal!! Great to be back baking, isn’t it? 🙂
