Palmier Cookies are basically a french elephant ear. They are crispy on the outside with a soft flaky center. These cookies were beyond easy to make and are perfect for an afternoon tea or sunday brunch treat. I personally , with the help of my husband, devoured a dozen of these in one night (they are just that good).But I’ll let you be the judge, try out this recipe and let me know what you think.

Say it with me tiramisu (tear-a- me-sue). Ahh the sweet coffee goodness that is magically layered into one perfect bite. Tiramisu is like love, it is sweet, deep , complex and can be a little naughty sometimes if there is enough rum in it. Tiramisu is one of my all time favorite desserts, when I was younger I self proclaimed myself an official tiramisu taster, demanding a sample in every italian restaurant I visited. So what better way than to start my blog off than with something I absolutely adore right? My ode to the tiramisu however, is not a normal one.
It all started with a phone call, my grandmother rang me one evening asking if my husband and I would like to come for dinner later on that week. Of course I said yes and asked if there was anything I could bring with me (if you are the kind of person that doesn’t offer to bring something, you’re just plain rude.) My grandmother asked if I could bring one of my desserts, so instantly my head started running with ideas, maybe a tart… no thats too simple. I wanted to impress them, I loved the idea of doing a chocolate shell and had never tried it before. Thats when it hit me, I decided to make tiramisu in a chocolate bowl.
