Chouquettes are like little cream puff pastries, except without the cream inside. They're topped with pearl sugar (which happen to be my favorite part) and make a perfect bite-sized snack.

I had never heard of a Merveilleux until a couple of weeks ago, and certainly never tasted one either. I stumbled across a photo of one of these on Instagram or Facebook a couple of weeks ago and I have been obsessing over them ever since, just trying to find a recipe. I looked up photos of Merveilleux on Frederic Vaucamps's website, drooled, and told myself that I absolutely needed to make them. It looked simple enough to make: 3 meringue cookies sandwiching whipped cream, enveloping everything with even more whipped cream, and covered in a layer of shaved chocolate or anything else that might taste delicious.

Limoncello Cupcakes

One of the Tuesdays with Dorie recipes for this month is the Limoncello Cupcakes recipe in Baking Chez Moi. Coincidentally, I had a lot of lemons to use, but ironically, there was only a need for one lemon... The Limoncello gives these cupcakes most of its flavor.
