My modified recipe for Gingersnaps - all the taste with a lot less of the guilt!
I knew that the French were famous for their cuisine, but I wasn’t prepared for the sheer beauty of the cakes, pastries, confections and sweet treats offered in their patisseries. Everything from the color combinations, to the shapes of the cakes and the finishing details – a raspberry here and there dusted with sugar, or the slightest hint of edible glitter or gold leaf – makes each cake a work of art.

My choice? The Saint Honore cream tart at Ladurée…
Followed by a marzipan pear.
