Palets des Dames, Lille Style

Today on French Fridays with Dorie we are celebrating Dorie’s birthday with sweets from her new cookbook Baking Chez Moi.  With the release of her new cookbook, just 4 days away, Dorie has shared some baking recipes in advance.  Palets des Dames, Lille Style; Canneles; and Chocolate Cream Puffs with Mascarpone and Rose Filling.  My family picked  Palets des Dames, Lille Style for me to make.

This is a soft cake-like batter that needs to be chilled for a least an hour so planning is in order. Dorie suggests 2 teaspoons of dough per cookie.  I did not have this handy scoop size so I scooped 2 teaspoons and rolled into a ball.

The cookies cool to room temperature before icing.

Palets des Dames, Lille Style are very pretty cookies.  We enjoyed this vanilla cookie with a hint of lemon.  My son said that because they were so small that he could eat 8:)

See what others made from Baking Chez Moi.

    Wonderful! Envy you for that perfect icing… mine always always go blah on me!

    I totally agree with your son! I think I did eat 8! LOL! I really enjoyed these. Sorry I missed your question on the Jerusalem Artichokes – I didn't end up finding them after all…Have a lovely weekend!

    I ate more than 8. Whoops. ha! These were a big hit in our house, too. Even my husband, who isn't a big fan of sweets, ate a few.


  4. These are perfect – and now I have looked at so many of these posts that I need to bake them as well!

    Oh boy do I need to try those cookies- they look amazing. And I think I could have taken out more than 8, regardless of size 🙂 Yours are beautiful- great job !!

    They are addictive, aren't they? We packaged some up and distributed some to various family members (my uncle says I've earned favourite niece status, for now). Still, a lot disappeared before that happened.

    Such sweet little cookies – I could probably eat 8 too.

    These look so pretty, and I enjoy sweets with lemon. I'll have to include them in my Christmas cookie roster.


  11. Nana says:

    I agree with Adriana, these would be a great addition to Christmas cookies. Yours look wonderful. This was such a fun way to celebrate everything this week, nowI can't wait to see the new book.

    Gorgeous cookies! Definitely in my holiday entertaining roster this year. It would be tempting to eat the entire platter!

    LOL, one is definitely not enough of ANY cookie… but 8? 🙂 Perfect! These look great and what fun cookies to make with kids! Have a lovely Trifecta Celebration Day!

    I could eat 8 even if they weren't small. Very nice little cookies, weren't they?

    Your son is my kinda guy. I ate five of those delicious morsels before they finished cooling. Quickly packed up the rest and took to the Library Ladies! Your cookies look exactly as I want my cookies to look. I always think bigger is better and started out my making larger cookies. And, I didn't roll them like I would do after reading your Post. As I made more cookies, I made them smaller and the last few looked good. Yours are all gorgeous.

    Your cookies look beautiful! I made these as well, and they were terrific. I ended up making a half-batch between calls and emails just before I left on a trip. Into a box the cookies went, and made for a sweet treat on my job-site! I still have the 2nd half of the batter in the freezer and can't wait to bake them. Yours look lovely – oh, and I could have easily eaten 8!


  17. These are a pretty cookie and they sound delicious!


  18. So glad you are baking along with us! And I agree with your son. 😉

    Your son is a smart fella. Your cookies are adorable and I am so glad to have you in the group!


  20. Liz Berg says:

    LOL, sounds exactly what my sons would say! Your cookies look great!


  21. Fun that you let your family pick which recipe! Glad you are baking along!


  22. Zosia says:

    Beautiful cookies and all the same size! (I used a cookie scoop and still couldn't achieve that!). Looking forward to baking with you through the book.

    I think a lot of us could eat 8!

    8 is about what I ate too! I like the picture with the cookies laid out on the rectangular tray.

    You did Dorie proud, those are beautiful cookies!


  26. Eating eight (or more) is quite easy to do with these lovely little cookies!
