“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, making them a perfect treat for Valentine’s Day.

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!

It's hard to know where to begin. We stumbled across France Just For You by accident when researching ideas for our three week visit to France.

Every touch was added with so much special care and your willingness to answer all of my questions in such detail ahead of time was truly amazing.

My husband and I just returned from a 9 day trip to Burgundy and Provence. We had fairly high expectations based on all the reviews we had read about France Just For You. I must say, the trip far exceeded those expectations and was such a memorable experience. The B&Bs recommended were right in line with what we were hoping and the hosts were …

In January 2017 I started to formulate an idea to surprise him with a trip back home. Being Australian, we love road trips but without his French language skills I felt a bit scared to start booking …

Just returned from an amazing trip with our family, including 3 teenage boys. Emilie carefully listened to our request to focus on military history and arranged an itinerary with just the right balance of history, culture, art, and military history. We had incredible guides to Paris, WWI, and WWII sites plus unique B&Bs. So many memories!

As a result, my sister and I, along with our husbands, experienced a trip of a lifetime! From the beginning, Emilie was extraordinarily responsive, informative, and more …
