How to Make French Madeleine Cookies (Video) Recipe

 I love madeleine cookies. I love them so much, I probably make them at least once a month. They're a great snack and I always have someone in our home to enjoy, especially for guests that stop by for tea time. Believe me, ours never go to waste. 


My friend Zareen recently opened her new restaurant, aptly named Zareen's, on 1477 Plymouth in Mountain View. She serves delicious Pakistani/Indian kebabs and various scrumptious goods. She asked me if I'd be interested to make desserts. I rolled up my sleeves and jumped into her kitchen. I wanted to impart an oriental flair to the sweets so I prepared masala chai madeleine cupcakes. If you live in the area, stop in and try Zareen's delicous menu and my sweets! And if you don't live near by, you can always try and replicate them by watching my new madeleine cooking tuorial! Please check out and subscribe to my YouTube channel (PhamFataleDotCom) and bon appétit!

Almond Chocolate Cookie Cake Pie Recipe Recipe

Have you ever cooked a turducken? In case you don't know what a turducken is, it's a deboned turkey stuffed with a deboned duck stuffed with a deboned chicken. Turduckens are usually stuffed with breadcrumb dressing. Well, the idea for this elaborate dessert is smilar in concept,  but a sweet version. I wanted to layer one dessert into another and create a special, sweet treat: a cookie cake pie.

Somehow I managed to wrestle the whole thing together and came up with a dessert that I think made sense. It consisted of an almond passion fruit cheesecake inside an almondine tart, which is stuffed into a vanilla chocolate slivered almond cookie pie and finally layered on puff pastry dough.

I rarely make exactly the same dish twice. Once you've worked on your fundamentals, you can start to use the basic recipe and create dozens of different variations. This unique dessert is a true reflection of my cuisine. I love experimenting with new dishes and seeing my loved ones enjoying the fruit of my labor. Now all I need is to come up with a clever name for this unique dessert!

It's already the weekend, and as usual, I'm sharing with you the sweets our family has been enjoying these days. Today, to prepare a dessert with ingredients that reflect the produce of this season--oranges--I made a flan flavored with white Port wine and orange zest. 

The secret to the dish lies in the trio combination of mascarpone cheese, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk. Baby Aria loved the creamy, velvety texture of the flan, but her favorite part was the delicious caramel sauce. I didn't need to ask her twice if she wanted dessert!

Lemon Mini Cupcake Recipe

We're hosting a casual gathering with family friends today. I think cupcakes are the best ending to such an evening. I prepared butter-y mini-cupcakes made with a very light lemon-flavored genoise cake batter. To reinforce the flavor, I topped the cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting.

I love serving and eating cupcakes. You can make them for any occasion and they're an informal way to end a meal or to enjoy just as a snack.
