I don’t bake as often as I cook so I thought it would be fun to participate in the group Tuesdays with Dorie where a couple of times each month you try recipes out of her new cookbook Baking Chez Moi. Figured I’d learn some new things and get to eat some great desserts which are both good reasons to be part of the group! So, last week I made the first recipe – cookies named Palets de Dames. Palet means puck in French which is what these look like after they’re baked.
Here are some photos I took while making the recipe, which by the way, is very simple and easy to follow. Here’s the batter before it goes into the refrigerator:
Here are the cookies after they’ve been baked without icing:

Finally, here are a couple of Palets de Dames that I enjoyed with a poached pear:
The overall verdict after making these is that they’re really good and very easy to make. The combination of the buttery cookie with the lemony icing is really nice and I think they’d be great paired with a fruit dessert (like the poached pears) or just a cup of coffee or tea. I’ll definitely be making these again in the not too distant future.
