Parisian Deligthts

While visiting my sister we were talking about how difficult it is to make this delicious cookies. She has a book a beautiful books that has amazing recipes that even include savory versions filled with smoked salmon.

I personally like the sweet delicacy made with egg whites, powdered sugar, almonds and vanilla essence {almond or any other is really good too!}. The cookie sandwich usually comes filled with a flavored buttercream or jam that gives tons of flavor to the it.

This video is from Laduree in Paris which is the place credited to have created them back in the 1930's. The video is delicious so please don't watch it sometime around 3pm when you are looking for that little sugary treat.

Have a sweet day!!!
