I can say unequivocally that Dorie Greenspan taught me to bake. Years ago, my repertoire consisted only of muffins, quick breads and the occasional coffee cake. Then I discovered Tuesdays with Dorie. I followed the members' baking adventures as they worked their way through Dorie Greenspan's book Baking From My Home To Yours and was finally convinced by their successes to buy the book and bake. I didn't have a blog then to be able to share my results, but I have one now, so it's a real pleasure to be joining this group in baking through this beauty of a book, Dorie's latest, Baking Chez Moi.
Palets de Dames, Lille Style, a pretty little iced vanilla cookie, was our first recipe. With a cake-like texture and tangy glaze (I used lemon juice only), these easy to make cookie buttons were a nice little treat with a cup of coffee.
We're not publishing the recipes from the book but I encourage you to buy it, or pick up a copy from your local library to give it a test run - you won't be sorry. Visit TWD to see everyone else's lovely cookies.
