FFwD ~ Happy Birthday Dorie!

To celebrate the trifecta of Dorie’s birthday, the new book launch, and the 4th anniversary of French Fridays, Doristas are choosing to make one of the following recipes from Baking Chez Moi this week.
and here are my two bakes!
Palets des Dames, Lille Style
and Canelles
 
 
 
I forgot to reduce the quantity of sugars for both
hence they were perfect paired with Ginger Tea!
***
late night baking...
 by the way...
metal pans give way better results!
 using madeleine and mini tea cake pans
beautiful and crunchy exterior and tender interiors!

 Delish potato gratin which the Doristas made
back in November 2010!
 
  served with chicken basquaise (pipérade)
the Doristas did way  back in September 21, 2012
and one recipe which I had made on a couple of occasions already!

Your canelles look delicious. I so want to try that recipe, but first I need to find some molds.

Those madeleines look mouth-watering in their cannelés incarnation. Yum!

Great job Emily - you were dedicated baking the canneles twice. The chicken basque was quite wonderful, I remember.

These look fabulous Emily! Everything you did sounds wonderful - kudos to you and all the fantastic make-up work you are doing!

That's a lot of sweets. I really like how the cannelés look baked in the madeleine pans.

I made the cookies too (very tasty), and the canneles are next on the list!

Everything looks delicious and turned out great. I will be hosting a dinner party soon and I think I will serve that potato gratin. I always get great new ideas for cooking from your blog. You spent a lot of time on all those links. Happy cooking.

All of your recipes look delicious!! I only made the Palets, I didn't have pans for the cannelles (and I was intimidated), but now that I see your post, I am reminded of some small pans I do have (plus the Madeleine pans), so maybe I can get to those too. Yours look absolutely amazing!!

I am very excited to try the caneles after seeing everyone's results.

The potato gratin is one of our family's favorites. I can't tell you how many times we've made that recipe over the past few years.
