      ...when I made them they were just as easy and just as delicious as promised, with their crisp little hat on top, and a chewy, anise-flavored bottom.

Publishers Text

The author of Baking with Julia and the award-winning Desserts By Pierre Herme has written a book for everyone who loves Paris and dessert. Charmingly illustrated throughout and filled with Parisian pastry-shop lore, this collection of fifty sublime recipes will transport readers to the world's dessert capital.

From classic recipes, some centuries old, to updated innovations, Paris Sweets provides a sumptuous guide to creating cookies, from the fabled Madeleine to simple, ultra buttery sables; tarts from the famous Tarte Tatin, which began its life as an upside-down error, to a delightful strawberry tart embellished with homemade strawberry marshmallows; and a glorious range of cakes--lemon-drenched weekend cake, fudge cake, and the show-stopping Opera. Paris Sweets brims with assorted temptations that even a novice can prepare, such as coffee eclairs, rum-soaked babas, and meringue puffs. Evocative portraits of the pastry shops and chefs, as well as information on authentic French ingredients, make this a truly comprehensive tour.
