When I first saw this recipe in Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table, I immediately marked it as a “Must Try” recipe. I had never made choux before, but I read recipes in different cookbooks and watched a few YouTube videos for demonstrations. I realized that the ingredients and techniques are pretty much all the […]
Before I purchased Baking Chez Moi, I had never heard of Rugelach. To be honest, I’m still not 100% sure if I’m pronouncing it right (is the “ch” silent?). What I do know is that The Rugelach That Won Over France is currently the recipe of the week on Tuesdays with Dorie! I compared this recipe […]
This is a chocolate chip cookie that pretty much has everything you could possibly put into a chocolate chip cookie. Different types of sugar, different types of chocolate chips, oats, some nuts, and something extra to kick things up a notch, too.
I saw the recipe for these World Peace Cookies all over the internet and had to try them for myself. This recipe is the work of Pierre Herme and Dorie Greenspan. They know how to make a serious cookie! Dorie wrote in her book, Baking From My Home To Yours, “When I included these in Paris […]
The photo in BCM of this Cranberry Crackle Tart was the reason why I wanted to try it out for myself – not so much for the baking experience, but to see what this combination of flavors would be like. It’s a tart with a layer of jam, topped off with a combination of meringue and […]
Although there was no photo in Baking Chez Moi for this Apple Weekend Cake, I had a general idea of what it was supposed to look like. According to Dorie, the French use the term “weekend cake” because that’s how long these cakes will last before being completely devoured. I also learned from her book that […]
It has been a month since I learned how to make macarons with an Italian meringue. A small group of us went to Paris and we all learned how to make macarons from La Cuisine Paris. Our instructor was incredible and I can’t wait to go back to learn more!
I wanted to make another recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking Chez Moi called “Crispy-Topped Brown Sugar Bars.” She said that it can be made one of 2 ways: 1) by using Rice Krispies straight out of the box, or 2) by putting just a little more effort into it and caramelizing Rice Krispies first. I decided to […]
I was going through Dorie Greenspan’s latest book, Baking Chez Moi, and this recipe caught my attention. It’s basically a brown sugar bar/cookie with a layer of chocolate, and topped with caramelized Rice Krispies. Words don’t do this justice! If you have BCM, I highly recommend using caramelized Rice Krispies instead of cereal straight out […]
Thanks to Dorie Greenspan’s latest cookbook, Baking Chez Moi, I now have many new recipes to try out! This was the first recipe I tried from Dorie, and I think it’s a keeper! It has a nice crunchy texture, and the amount of chocolate that’s in the recipe is perfect!
