This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is for Apple Pielettes. These are tiny pies that are baked in muffin tins that have a nice buttery crust and great flavor inside and out. This is a pretty basic recipe; the part that took a little time was chilling the dough in different stages of the pie-making process.
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie assignment was Tiger Cakes, or petits gâteaux tigre. These are moist, upside-down mini cupcakes that have a nice chocolate and almond flavor, and aren’t too sweet at all! Dorie’s recipe makes 24 little cakes. To be perfectly honest, I hesitate whenever I see a cake as a Tuesdays with Dorie assignment because […]
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is for the Apple Kuchen: A Tall Apple-Custard Tourte. The photo of this tourte in Baking Chez Moi looks amazing. In fact, it was a recipe I thought didn’t belong under the “Simple Cakes” category in BCM at first glance. There are a few components to this cake: 1) making a crust, […]
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is the Jam Filled Sandwich Cookies recipe. The best way I can describe this cookie is jam sandwiched between two delicate shortbread cookies. This was recipe is straight-forward and does not require a lot of ingredients.
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie assignment is a Cherry Crumb Tart. Surprisingly, I think this is my favorite tart in Baking Chez Moi so far! I really didn’t expect this tart to be so good, but once I bit into my first slice, I could get the undertones of the orange zest in the streusel, a light […]
The Tuesdays with Dorie group selected Vanilla-Mango Panna Cotta for this week’s assignment. This worked out great because 1) mangos are on sale (and they’re really sweet), 2) this is a great dessert for this hot summer weather, and 3) what’s not to like about panna cotta?
This week’s assignment for Tuesdays With Dorie is an Apricot Raspberry Tart from Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Admittedly I was partly apprehensive about making this tart because a photo was not included with this recipe! This tart ended up looking very festive and having a lot of textures to it. If you like […]
I would not have tried making these Chocolate-Cherry Brownies if it wasn’t for the Tuesdays With Dorie group. This recipe was not high on my list of recipes to try because I’m not a big fan of dried cherries. However, I was surprised that I liked the taste of these brownies more than I thought […]
When I first got Dorie Greenspan’s book, Baking Chez Moi, I went through all of the pages and earmarked the recipes that I wanted to try. The photo for the Strawberry Shortcakes Franco-American Style in BCM looked so good that it was one of the first things on my list of recipes to try. It took […]
I have always enjoyed tapioca, but I usually ate it out of a plastic container labeled “Jell-O.” Dorie Greenspan’s Baking Chez Moi includes a recipe for Coconut Tapioca, which I made because it was an assignment for Tuesdays with Dorie.
