Cat’s Tongues

“Cat’s Tongues are long, thin oval-shaped cookies that are characteristically browned around the edges and paler at the center.” When I read Dorie’s Bonne Idee for this cookie, Milano-ish sandwich cookies with a chocolate ganache I knew I would make that version.

Mascarpone Mousse

It was with trepidation I made this weeks baking assignment for Tuesdays with Dorie. My husband told me he really doesn’t like mascarpone.

Cookies-and-Cream Tartlets

Tuesdays with Dorie Baking Chez Moi This was the perfect dessert to top off our Mother’s Day dinner. As I was making these, my husband watched me cut little squares of foil to cover the six tartlets and he said “it would be much easier to make one big one”. He is right it would…
