“Biscuits roses de Reims” are a specialty of the Champagne area. They are light, crunchy finger-shaped cookies and are amongst the oldest cookies in France. The Maison Fossier has been making them since 1691.

You may dip them into a glass of Champagne to enjoy, but I like turning them into beautiful pink truffles. They make a perfect treat for a loved one, so keep this recipe in mind for Valentine's Day, a wedding anniversary, or an upcoming birthday!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup crushed Pink Biscuits
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup + 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon rum
  • Powdered sugar

 

Instructions:

  • Mix the butter and the crumbs, then add the egg yolk and rum, and finally the biscuit crumb. Mix well – the batter will be rather thick.
  • Place the batter in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Form the truffles in little balls, about the size of a walnut shell, and roll each one in the powdered sugar.

Enjoy with a glass of Champagne!

We could not be happier. When we first received the guide book and brochures, we thought we would not need them, but they were invaluable! Our first stay with Florence and Phil was especially memorable but really we cannot think of a highlight because it was all wonderful. We will certainly recommend your company to anyone we know travelling to …

We have just return from an amazing holiday arranged by France Just for You - visiting Paris, Vimy Ridge, Normandy (D-Day Beaches) and Mont Saint Michel. Emilie listened to what our wishes were and arranged everything in great detail. The accommodations (hotels and bed and breakfasts) all had so much charm and character - the hosts were very …

There are not enough superlatives, or kind words, to describe the level of service Emilie, with France Just for You, provided us from the moment we contacted her, throughout our trip, and even her thoughtful emails upon our return. We contacted Emilie with a list of all the places we wished to go, the things we hoped to do, and our budget. We …

My wife and I completed a 3 week driving trip out of Bordeaux which was organized by France Just for You. The Bed and Breakfast accommodations were superb, the personalized guidebook comprehensive and well-organized, and the booked activities were high quality. Having the rental car booked for us was a major advantage (Don’t drive in France without …

Emilie and Guillaume: I want to send you this special thank you for making this trip truly spectacular! Our time in France was memorable precisely because of the people we've met, and the unique experiences we've had. We owe that all to you. There's no way that we ever would have been able to find the bed and breakfasts that you booked for us. And …

In May we travelled to France for our second trip with Emilie and France Just For You, and it was just as wonderful as our first adventure! Emilie's planning is so thorough and detailed that not a thing is left to chance. The B and B's were lovely and the hosts delightful; the routes were carefully planned to give us a complete taste of Southern …
