  1. Hi Monique,
    A delightful autumnal nibble! If only these sweet leaves would gently tumble from our wind swept trees...;)
    Hope you enjoy a lovely weekend.

  2. so cute...watched the video.

    Bon weekend to you both too!

    Sweet Up-North Mornings...

  3. Monique, you always get my attention with your stellar photography and the best recipes! These delicate crisps look almost too beautiful to eat!

  4. How cute! I am going to check this magazine at the news stands tomorrow... Thanks! :)

  5. Those are so cute, Monique! Perfect to serve with a cup of tea this fall.

    (I couldn't find an email address for you so will answer your questions here. I'm moving from an apt. to a house in a small city nearby. A moving company will be packing my dishes and glasses, but I am doing the rest. Slowly. One room a week. Sorting as I go along. Nobody is helping me...only I would know what to pack and what to get rid of.

    You can use this mixture in place of pumpkin pie spice if you can't find it: 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon; 4 teaspoons ground nutmeg; 4 teaspoons ground ginger; 3 teaspoons ground allspice.

    I have 6 tart rings of one size and another set of increasing sizes. I got them years ago at a store called Bed Bath and Beyond. Have no idea if they still carry them. Use a muffin pan. That way all the sizes will be exactly the same.
    I am not giving up the blog. Will probably have a hiatus the middle of November when I actually move and then I am visiting my daughter in NYC for Thanksgiving. So I will pick blogging back up the beginning of December.)

  6. A beautiful fall treat, Mme M! They look crispy and delicious. I think I could eat almonds in every dessert I make :)

    I love fall's the after that makes me shudder.

  7. What a great way to kick off the season. They sound delightful...I am partial to almond...and such a cute the little leaf-cutter...

  8. These sound delicious. Love how they look, too.

  9. Barbara..thank you for all the info:-) I know what you mean re the packing..I would hold items up to my friend and say...apt..or storage..:-)
    She is renting for one could not bring everything..treasures from France..Ireland. she lived many places..Paris..It was actually an honor to be with her..packing is so personal..
    Bon courage as we say Barbara..sounds like a great new adventure..enjoy your visit also..
    I am glad I may be encouraging some to make these..they taste like something I have bought..cannot place the brand etc..
    the after makes me shudder too...even today..darkish..drizzle..damp.the colors don't shine:-)

  10. I'm always so amazed not only by your recipes but by all the beautiful dishes and props you use for your photos. Wherever do you find them all?

    I must try these!

  14. Oh do I wish Food & Drink magazine was available here! I cherish the copies you've shared and I'm so pleased they have a website.

    If the publisher saw you pictures ~ they would be chosen for the magazine, I'm certain. C'est Beau!! xo

  15. Quelle jolie ambiance d'automne tu nous donnes là ... J'ai réussi à lire la recette ! ;o) A essayer aussi ...

  16. These Almond Raisin Crisps look like Fall is at your house. I have to try this recipe!


  17. Awww, those are really cute Monique! Very Autumnal. I can see them tasting very nice with a bowl of spiced applesauce on the side! What a fab dessert! I don't think I would like the dough coloured. I think they look perfect just the way they are! xxoo

  18. Monique, these look so delicious. I want to make these for a luncheon I'm giving end of the month. They will be perfect! Thank you for sharing........Sarah
