I love "Petit Beurre" cookies. Simple, not too sweet, they often help me out when I'm hungry, after a run, or because I want a snack. When I saw this pretty cake, I thought mostly of children. The kind of sweetness that should please them, at first sight. And it proved to be true. But not only with children...
A very popular cake in Turkey!
When I made this cake, I just thought it was a French thing. What could be more Frenchie than these famous little cookies? Since I posted the photos, I've heard from... Turkey. It's a very popular dessert over there! I would have never imagined that. But I can see why: it's practically no-bake and can be made in a few minutes. Its chocolatey taste is to die for. When chilled overnight, it could almost pass for the famous "sandwich" ice creams that my kids used to love when we spent our summer vacations in Italy. A slightly regressive dessert, but totally addictive. For those who love sweetness, childhood memories and chocolate...
- 1.5 packages tea cookies
- 240 g liquid cream
- 240 g chocolate
- 3 dl milk
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- Heat the liquid cream in the microwave or in a small saucepan. Pour it over the chocolate pieces. Cover and let melt for 3 minutes, mix well, then let cool for 4 hours.
- After this time, whip the ganache. Mix milk and cocoa in a bowl.
- Line a rectangular or square pan with cling film. Pour a first layer of ganache in the bottom of the mold. Smooth gently. Dip the cookies in the chocolate milk and place them in a second layer on top of the ganache. Cover with a new layer of ganache, then cookies, until you reach at least 2/3 of the mold.
- Let stand 6 hours, or even overnight, in the refrigerator.
- Unmold and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar if desired.
