The best seven recipes to try

French Biscotti

French BiscottiThese are croquettes that have a beautiful almond flavor and some lemon. They are light and easy to eat. You can make croquantes that are filled with cream by starting with a simple tuile recipe (croquettes are thicker than tuiles and so they are more crunchy). The trick to rolling them is, knowing when to start.

If you begin rolling once they are out of the oven, they will tear and if you wait for so long, they will cool and become stiff to wrap on a pencil or a wooden spoon handle. After removing them from the oven, put them on a parchment paper onto a wire rack and start rolling them after a minute.

You must do it fast, otherwise they will start hardening.

Cream-filled chocolate croquantes

Cream-filled chocolate croquantesFilling them is simple. You can make a ganache using crème fraiche instead of using cream. It is easy to pipe them into rolled cookies and then dip each end in a bowl that contains chocolate sprinkles.

Chocolate chunk shortbread and salted butter

Chocolate chunk shortbread and salted butterThese cookies live up to their name mostly because they are made using shortbread that is sweet. And being loaded with chocolate helps so much and do not forget to add salt since it makes the flavor explode.
