About this Cook
Born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, raised in Southern California, I spent most of my life various places in the States: Palm Desert, San Diego, college in Missouri, Albuquerque (for a marriage, son and divorce) and lastly, Montpelier, Vermont. After 8 years in Cheshire, UK (to pick up another marriage, two fabulous little girls, another divorce and my moniker) my girls and I moved to France. Hilarity ensues for five years. I now live with my two young children in this delightful area of France known as Côtes-d'Armor (Ar Mor is 'The Sea' in Breton, the local language.) I am currently trying to find premises, and the cash, to open a Tea Salon and café. It's been an exercise, so far, in 12 flavours of patience and persistence. You see, if you take an outspoken expat American Mother, mix with the ostentatiously turgid French Administration, you'll get a sort of vinaigrette; just one you'd never willingly choose to consume.

These were a huge hit! I have a pastry tamper, but the dough just stuck to it, so ended up shaping the dough with my thumbs. Extra fiddly, but worth it! These are so silly easy to make, and so impressive for the effort you have to put in, I can see making them A LOT! I think I'll try freezing the balls next time before shaping, just until a bit more firm, but, can't fault anything!
