Mini Gateaux Breton

What delightful little cookies 
Rose came up with!
Incredibly easy 
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.
I followed 
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
baked temperature 
because these little gems
could easily over bake.

They are the perfect size 
for a
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.
