Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies, was released this week. I went through the entire thing the night mine came in the mail and I couldn’t wait to get baking! One of the recipes that caught my attention was for the French Snacklettes. Dorie received this recipe from Arnaud Larher (a Paris pastry star) about 20 years ago.

It’s been a while since my last Tuesdays with Dorie post! I’ve missed that group! Trying to get back into the swing of things, I made Dorie Greenspan’s recipe for a Pear Tart with Crunch Almond Topping from Baking Chez Moi.

Luckily, Dorie has a recipe in Baking Chez Moi for a Galette des Rois which includes either lemon or orange zest. I thought that using orange zest would make a tasty Galette, but later I decided that a Galette with orange zest AND vanilla beans would be […]
