What delightful little cookies
Rose came up with!
for finding the mini pans.
Surprisingly the cake decorating store
had sets but one half inch larger.
They were also ridiculously expensive so
I only bought two sets of four.
A simple cookie batter of Irish butter,
sugar, egg yolks, ground almonds and vanilla
mixed together then chilled.
I skipped the rum.
The dough is rolled into balls
and pressed into the molds.
lead and weighed out thirty gram portions
for the larger pans.
And ten grams for a mini muffin tin.
I ran out of mini cupcake papers
but they worked well either way.
I was glad Rose provided the internal
because these little gems
could easily over bake.
They are the perfect size
children's tea party
but I doubt there will be one
since my husband loves them!
Definitely on the make again list.
Next time I think I'll try Amaretto
or a bit of orange oil.
