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.
