And made some rose cookies..
And painted a quick tablescape~
I loved that quote ..God gave us memories so we may have roses in December~
It's so true and can apply to so many things~ so many connotations.
I had Pinned these beautiful and delicious cookies that I found HERE..A lovely blog..Torta Della Figlia~ ok..:) try here ..
And somehow knew I would post them with my last roses..you just know when your roses are the last..the last hurrah..the little brown specks..the fading blooms..
The ones that are left will be evanescent~
I took advantage of immortalizing them:)
And am sharing her delicious cookie recipe~
Luckily she has a translate button for many of her recipes..
This recipe makes 2 pans she said..
so I halved it and made 1 pan..which is more than enough for a few days for Jacques and I.
This is a perfect cookie to go along with a cup of tea or coffee.
It's just delicious..and tastes like little fancy Euro pastry shop cookie and looks like one.
For the full recipe..
450-500grams of flour
4 egg yolks
300grams of butter..I use salted
200 grams caster sugar
vanilla extract (I use vanilla bean paste)
Preheat oven to 320-338F
Combine every ing together (except the marmalade)
I creamed room temp butter with the sugar and paste..then the egg yolks and egg then the flour.
Form together into a nice dough
On a foured work surface..roll out dough to ap. 3mm.
Cut out circles ap-7-8 cms..
Then go see her step by step tutorial:)
Take 2 circles and place with their sides overlapping each other.
Place marmalade in the middle of each circle then add a middle circle and again add your marmalade.
Roll one side to the center and then roll the other side over.
Cut in two..to get 2 roses.
Place on a prepared baking sheet (Parchment) and bake for 15-20 mins.
You can also dust with icing sugar when done..
They taste like something I had so many many years ago..and I cannot remember where..perhaps in someone's home..They were delicacies..
