Description

When it comes to sweets, the French do it best!

If you love macarons, sablé petit fours, and madeleines, you're in for a sweet treat. This delicious cookbook is full of recipes for bite-size French desserts that pack a sweet punch. With the tiny desserts featured in Les Petits Sweets, you can taste more than one, or have a dessert-tasting party to try them all. And try them you must. With flavors like:
  • Earl Grey
  • lavender
  • cassis
  • cardamom
  • apple-yuzu


. . . and more, it will be impossible to choose just one. Nougats, caramels, and tiny cakes and cookies will help you expand your French repertoire and flex your baking muscles. Tangerine-Poppy Financiers, Tarte Tatin Macarons, Strawberry-Matcha Tartelettes, Chocolate-Macadamia Shortbreads, and Sesame-Chocolate-Orange Wafers are just a few of the imaginative patisserie offerings you can recreate at home. Classic French techniques explain each recipe from start to finish. Go ahead, have dessert first.
