Black and White

It just dawned on me that I forgot to take pictures of the petits fours I made last Friday.  Oh well... my ex-colleagues Mike and Jeff can tell you that they were quite delicious :)

We made these ice box and swirl cookies on Friday when the temperature in the kitchen was over 100F.   It was rather impossible to make little desserts in such warm temperature and at one point I almost wanted to give up.  My persistance paid off.  These cookies turned out to be almost perfect. 

The heat wave finally broke and the temperature in the kitchen today was much more reasonable.  Great day to make petits fours glaces (lots of buttercream).  It's setting up overnight in the freezer and we'll glace them tomorrow... so until then...

Ice Box and Swirl Cookies

  1. I love the icebox and swirl cookies. And the chocolate dipped lemon cookies with the jam inside. And the green tea madeleines - perfect for breakfast. Seems like there isn't a cookie that I don't like.
