When I was about 11, we'd just moved to a new house, so I hadn't made a lot of friends yet. To fill the time, my mom offered to teach me to cook. Of course, I only wanted to learn how to make desserts! My favorite recipe from that time was a petit fors recipe in the handy, dandy Betty Crocker cookbook. Our's didn't turn out quite as pretty as the ones in the picture, but they were delicious and pretty in their own, homemade way. I'll always remember this time with my mom.

What a great memory you have of your mom. Have you ever made the petite fors again? I have never tried to make them, just wondering how difficult there are to make.
Thanks for sharing.

When I owned the Bakery I would make European petite-fores.  Very easy!

My Mom baked delicious pies and her crust was tender and flaky.  I would help her and she would let me roll out the scraps and bake them with cinnamon and sugar.  Those were the best scraps!
