Biscuits Roses de Reims (Pink Biscuits from Reims) Truffles

“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!
