Cookies en Coeur (choeur)

It’s a funny thing; when I sit down to knit, hardly have I done two stitches when I get ideas for doing other things.  I was planning to make a pound cake to take to choir practice tonight but last night, not even halfway through a row of knitting, I decided that heart-shaped chocolate covered cookies with 16th notes would be much better.  So I got to work on a stencil for the notes, resulting in little bits of paper flying around a room I had vacuumed that very morning.

I used a simple recipe for pâte sablé that is in the Moulinex book that came with the food processor.  300g flour, 115g sugar, 150g butter, (I added some allspice)  blend that well with the S blade, then add 2 eggs, blending until it comes together.  Roll out, cut and bake.

I melted half a bar of Lindt baking chocolate, thinned it with some hot water, stirring well, and glazed the cookies.  I waited a bit to let them set, then I used the stencil with powdered sugar and a spoon, tapping a little bit.  Just like photocopied music, some came out clearer than others.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
