“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!

Wherever possible we prefer to travel on our own as opposed to going on a tour package. With France - Just For You, they arranged for a vehicle and booked us into a couple of lovely B&B’s and a great Boutique Hotel in Paris and booked a couple of activities that we were interested in. Besides that, they put together a book for us with everything we …

The guide book is the best. All the guides were …

We just returned from a fantastic three weeks in Southwest France. I highly recommend the services of France Just For You, we could never have planned the trip ourselves as well as they did. Laura did the planning and gave us an amazing itinerary, and was available at a moment's notice when we had a plane cancellation on our flight to Bordeaux and …

We were overwhelmed by the wealth of information available when attempting to plan our 6 week self drive holiday in France. Never having been to France before we found the task daunting and sifting through forums full of information only confused us. We have traveled in New Zealand using a New Zealand based travel adviser and decided to look into …
