Pure decadance, Parisian style.

I recently spent an absolutely splendid three weeks overseas (a celebratory holiday after graduating from university, hurrah!) and one of the places I visited was Paris. I took a bike trip to see Versailles with the company Fat Tire Bikes, who I highly recommend for a very entertaining and relaxing tour (and even for those like me, who haven’t ridden a bike since they were a small child).

To gather provisions for a picnic in the palace grounds, we made a stop at market place where there were a wide variety of shops full of scrumscious food. I could not walk past this bakery without grabbing a pastry (or three). Forgive me for not taking note of the name of the bakery, but honestly there are millions of them all over the city.

This is only a small view of the shop, as it was a bit difficult to take photos further inside as it was so crowded!

Cranberry & White Chocolate Cookies


I made these delicious, chewey cookies with the sister yeterday. They are very morish, so beware! 😛

The only couple of modifications I would make the next time I bake them would be to reduce the butter to 125g (I found the mixture was quite oily) and reduce the sugar to 1/2 or 1/3 cup, as the white chocolates adds a lot of sweetness. Still, they are extremely yummy!

Original recipe:
