Parmesan Galettes

The Parmesan galettes are part of Dorie’s Cookies cocktail cookies section. There are just three ingredients to these galettes; flour, butter and Parmesan cheese, lots of Parmesan cheese. The dough made in a food processor and chilled for 1-2 hours comes together easily. I made my galettes free form as I had no patience for…

Petite Apple Croustades

These petite packages were a fun way to usher in a new season. This is an apple filled dessert with phyllo dough. I used a mix of apples; Gala, Fuji and Golden Delicious. I flavored mine with brandy as that is the alcohol I had on hand. Despite Dorie’s modifications from the original, this is…

Honey-Spiced Madeleines

In the instructions, Dorie asks that you press the confectioners’ sugar, almond flour, cocoa, cinnamon and salt through a fine strainer. I had trouble getting…

Salmon en Papillote

This week on I Heart Cooking Clubs, S is for September. We were challenged with making any dish that had one or two ingredients starting with the letter S. I chose Ruth Reichl’s Sole in Papillote but substituted for salmon as my husband does not like sole. Additional S ingredients were scallions and soy sauce….
