I’m glad you can’t see me pronounce the name of this butter cookie, Palets Bretons. I don’t speak French and let alone how this dessert sounds from my mouth, I know I look funny when I pronounce it.
These are thick and heavenly butter cookies from France. Some bake it until crisp and crumbly some bake it until fluffy and cakey. I like both versions. However, in the softer version, you can add ice cream and travel to comfort land.
Making Palets Bretons.Since these are butter cookies, you must use good quality butter and ingredients at room temperature. Palets Bretons are delicate cookies and taste even better the next day.
