TWD: Palets de Dames, Lille Style

Tuesday with Dorie is cooking from a brand new book, Baking Chez Moi! Very exciting times! Lately, well, actually for a quite a while now, I've been feeling a little guilty since I didn't stay on track with Baking with Julia. But now there's new rules and I feel free! Yippee!!! Ahhahahaha!!!

Ahem. Anyway. Today's recipe was Palets de Dames, Lille Style. And I have no idea how you pronounce that, but sounds pretty fancy. If anyone knows, please fill me. :D It's a cute little cookie that is kind of cake like and with the icing, is very sweet. It would pair well with a black tea, such as earl grey. MmMmM It is definitely very difficult to eat just one.

I actually didn't like them the night that I made them. They were better the next day. And I feel like most of the "sugar cookies" I make, I don't like until the following day. I think it has something to do with the icing. It firms up more and the sugary water moistens the cookie a little bit. My SO, didn't like them at first either, but the next day, he thought they were better. Yay!
