On Monday we baked classic French meringue cookies. We’ve made these before a couple of times. We covered half in pralinettes, and the other half in coconut. I gave mine away – I can’t eat all of this stuff! I really can’t. I tried for a couple of months.
We also baked chocolate macarons. These were made using the French meringue method, so they were a little trickier. The filling is made of dark chocolate, butter, raspberries, and raspberry booze. These were good too, but I prefer the pistachio. I gave these away too. Heh heh.
Today we made apple tarts; the shell was made from sweet dough, and the filling was apple, butter, and turbinado sugar. The topping is a “nougat” made from egg whites, sugar, almonds, and cinnamon. These tarts were tasty. I give them an A+ for taste, and a C- for appearance.
These are the lemon madeleines we baked. They were quite lovely. Perfect with a hot cup of tea.
And last, chocolate espresso tarts. Chocolate tart dough filled with a chocolate, egg, butter, espresso mixture, and a chocolate glaze.
All together now.
