Quince Thumbprint Cookies

Quince Thumbprint Cookies

In Uruguay they are called "Ojitos", in Argentina we call the "Pepas". Doesn’t matter what name I use, truth is these cookies take me back to my school years, when I use to buy big bags of these quince thumbprints cookies to eat during breaktime. I vividly remember sitting at the side of our school kiosk, holding a packet of pepas, talking to my friends. A regular day. I made them because make me travel to a happy place, and I thought I'd share because maybe they will do the same for you. And we need thar right now!

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Sometimes mistakes turn into great things. This is one of those times. I was attempting something completely different, I was trying to make fluffier, lighter financiers, but they turned out too light when I first tested them. I needed a solution to my problem. And then I remembered cupcakes. As it happens, I had plenty of paper molds at home, and I thought to myself the planets are aligning. Suddenly my financier frustration became cupcake hope.
This is the lightest, moistest, most delicious lemon cupcake you will ever try. It’s incredible. And it’s all thanks to the egg whites: beat egg whites to be more precise. It’s a game changer. And the brown butter. Always the butter. You know I live in France, right? We can’t go without butter long. 😊

Dulce de leche & Coconut Alfajores

Dulce de leche & Coconut Alfajores

After a two-year pause, I came back to blogging last November. But I have been rather silent for the since Christmas time. I took vacation in Argentina very seriously 😊 I disconnected 100% and it made coming back to the blog and social media harder than I imagined. I’m back now. With a lot of new recipes coming your way.
Today I’m sharing an Argentinean classic: maicena alfajores. Lemon scented cookies as light as air, filled with dulce de leche and covered in shredded coconut. They are the bomb! So easy to make you can bake them with your kids over the weekend. For real. I have proof.
