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!
