Tuesdays With Dorie—Baking Chez Moi—Palets de Dames, Lille Style

Palets de Dames, Lille Style  (TWD-BCM) 11-9-14 at Baking and Boys!

Palets de Dames, Lille Style from Baking Chez Moi

Guess what?!  It’s Tuesdays With Dorie back on my blog again!  I have missed it after baking my way through Dorie Greenspan’s cookbook, Baking From My Home to Yours and participating in some of Baking With Julia as well as Around My French Table.  Well, now that Dorie has a new book out, Baking Chez Moi, I’ve decided to get back with the program.  Many others have still been baking and cooking their way through the other books, but I had to stop for a time.  I’m back!

The first recipe that was chosen from Baking Chez Moi was these simple little sugar cookies, Palets de Dames, Lille Style.  The recipe can be found on the link for the book on Amazon.  We won’t be posting recipes in the group.  We all think you should get Dorie’s book.

I love that these cookies were so easy and used just a few basic ingredients that are almost always in my home—butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and flour.  Mix up the dough, refrigerate it for an hour or more, then scoop the dough with a small cookie scoop, bake, cool and dip them in a powdered sugar lemon glaze.  You don’t have to, but you can also sprinkle a little coarse sugar on them—in any color you’d like.   Perfect cookies for a baby or bridal shower or just for easy entertaining or giving as a gift.

I made the dough on Sunday morning and wasn’t able to bake the cookies until later that evening.  My boys have happily munched on them since and they are almost gone.  I’m sure my family…..and friends will be happy to receive a lot more goodies to come as I bake with the Tuesdays With Dorie group again!  The group will be baking twice a month.  See you for the next one right before Thanksgiving with a perfect holiday dessert, Cranberry Crackle Tart.

It was much safer to have a home for these cookies...

Yay! I'm excited to see so many familiar "faces" for the new book. =) (Di, formerly of Di's Kitchen Notebook, now To Di For Bakery)

Pretty little cookies and so easy to make! I'd probably opt for a colored sugar for up top...I think blue would look nice given the color of the cookie and the frosting, but red & green could work with xmas coming up!

I see that you got yours posted promptly at 9:50 this morning...here we go again, my attempts to try to get close to the standards you set! lol It's good to be back, isn't it? I notice that yours all look so nicely round and the same size and all that. I got three to match! But the others were just as tasty. :-) xo for the boys (oh, yeah, they are much older now and won't appreciate that so just tell them hello).

Nice to meet you, Katrina! I'm joining the TWD fold after three years of FFwD. Great job with this week's recipe.

Liz Berg said...

Your cookies look wonderful. I'm new to TWD and am looking forward to baking with everyone.

Karen Reinsch said...

SO glad you are back! I kind of fell off the wagon as well. Your cookies look delicious!

Teresa said...

Your cookies turned out beautifully. I agree that it's great to start with a pantry staple recipe (and one that turns those ingredients into such elegant little cookies, too). Looking forward to baking along with everyone!

It's hard to keep up with the blogging, isn't it? I've done pretty well with Around My French Table but I find it harder to keep up with baking. I'm hoping for the best though. Glad to see you back.

Looks good! I loved the simplicity of this recipe.
