Glazes, glazes, glazes. Chocolate glazes, cocoa glazes, fruit glazes, but all with a common feature: they must be very shiny … like a mirror. A simple dessert, as I wanted the focus on a perfect, super shiny glaze. A melt-in-your-mouth hazelnuts bavarian cream combined with cocoa glaze I am quite pleased with the results, and the dome does look pretty! And it tastes good too, as usual, of hazelnuts and chocolate.
If you love hazelnuts, you could not appreciate these cookies. Easy to make, delicious and simply elegant. Perfect breakfast cookie or to serve as a little dessert alongside a cup of coffee.
Last week I came across some coconut recipes and I decided to follow the I one I found on an italian website: fables de sucre (http://blog.giallozafferano.it/fablesucre/crostata-con-frolla-e-crema-al-cocco/). It is a tart that made me go straight to the kitchen: easy, fast and delicious. The shortcrust pastry is madly coconut, the filling is a coconut pastry cream……. A tart for coconut lovers. The amount of pastry is plentiful for this mold, but with leftovers you can create delicious cookies, perfect for tea time.
