Down to the final 2 weeks on French Fridays with Doire. This week we were to choose the recipe from the book that you have made the most often. Given that I joined the group so late my rule was not to repeat but continue cooking the book. But as in life there are a few exceptions to the rule and this Gateau Basque is one of them. This was such a hit with my husband that he raved about it with every bite. You see this cookie reminded him of his grandmother’s. Food creates memories for all of us so I picked this one not only because it is great but because of the memories it invoked. We also made it again for a brunch and once sliced it was gone.
If you have not bought Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan, I urge you to do so. Once book is in hand, you must make this Gateau Basque and share it.
