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!

For the recipe, get Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan and join us on this baking adventure! Also, check out the blogroll for more pretty picture of cookies!


  1. I liked these better without the icing, but I"m weird like that. Nice meeting you, Jen!

  2. I haven't kept up with Baking with Julia either, but hope to pop in now and again for it. This book, though, I'm hoping to bake through completely! Your cookies turned out beautifully.

  3. I’m another lax Baking with Julia baker! I am so looking forward to baking through Dories new book, however! Your cookies look beautiful! Here's to our new adventure! Happy baking!

  4. Beautiful cookies! This is my first time baking with the group and I'm hoping to keep up.

    1. Yay!!! Welcome! I hope you enjoy adventure as much I do! :D Yay!!! New TWD Baker!

  5. I didn't keep up with Baking with Julia either...just wasn't as much fun as the first TWD and let's face it, I'm in it for the fun as much as the baking. :-) You did a wonderful job on the cookies, I wish I could lift a couple from the plate.

  6. When I saw the "new rules" link I had to go look, LOL! OK, I follow most of them... nobody's gonna come after me if I don't post on Tuesday. Glad you're back!

  7. I'll probably end up not baking as much with BWJ, now that we are baking through this book. These recipes appeal to me a lot more. Looking forward to baking along with you.
