Merveilles

We have another fried dessert on Tuesdays with Dorie. Merveille means miracle and it is a miracle that I made this recipe. The dough is soft and requires two chillings. It is supposed to be rolled until it is paper-thin. My dough kept either sticking to the cutting board or getting holes in it before…

Tropical Tartlets

This month on Tuesdays with Dorie we have had a tropical theme; mango, lime and coconut. Given that none of us can travel beyond our own backyards we are traveling with our food adventures. These tropical tartlets from Baking Chez Moi live up to their name. The filling is comprised of mango, eggs, sugar, coconut,…

Crème Brûlée Tart

Another fabulous tart on Tuesdays with Dorie. We are down to the final tarts from Baking Chez Moi. Taking a traditional creme brulee filling and putting into a tart is tasty. I used the optional extracts of vanilla and chambord which I am not sure I tasted. I put in a half a cup of…

Ladyfingers

When these ladyfingers were assigned for Baking Chez Moi I knew I would be making something with them. I picked Raspberry Tiramisu en Verrine from Around My French Table. This is a layered dessert a verrine (short glass). Ladyfingers are brushed with kirsch, framboise or creme de cassis or in my case Chambord. The raspberry…

Fruit and Nut Croquants

Fruit and nut croquants are everything my husband loves in a cookie; orange, almond and raisins. I used all the optional ingredients in this cookie; orange rind, nutmeg, almond extract and cloves. I took Dorie’s advice “go heavier on the nuts than the fruit” and added 5 ounces of whole almonds with skin and 3…

Chocolate Pot de Crème

Tuesdays with Dorie members were tasked with making Tea and Honey Pots de Crème this week. Since I have not been fond of our latest tea flavored recipes I thought I would make one of Dorie’s Bonne Idee. There were three to choose from; vanilla, chocolate and caramel and I chose chocolate. As expected these…

Martine’s Lemon and Apple Tart

I am posting late this week, Thursdays with Dorie?, because I wanted to make this tart for my anniversary which happens to be today. This monumental year of 2020 is having me celebrate all kinds of milestones at home. I can also see my planned vacation, a cruise, vanish before my eyes. But on to…

Green Tea Sablés

We have made several sable recipes over the years from Baking Chez Moi and this will be our last. The basis of this cookie is like most; butter, sugar, flour, salt but the secret ingredient is green tea leaves. This recipe is different from the rest as it does not have an egg which made…

Speculoos Panna Cotta

We enjoyed last weeks Nutella-Banana Panna Cotta so much that I decided to do Dorie’s Bonne Idee of Speculoos Panna Cotta. I had a package of Lotus Biscoff cookies that I knew would be the perfect crunchy accompaniment. I waited in a long line at Trader Joe’s for my Speculoos Cookie Butter, as well as…

Nutella-Banana Panna Cotta

This is our third and final panna cotta recipe for Baking Chez Moi and this happens to be my favorite. I really enjoy Nutella and this dessert hit the spot. There were few ingredients but each required a separate dish so this was a dish plenty recipe. Gelatin was bloomed in one dish. Milk and…
