Assorted Pastries for a Reception

I didn't get to making the World Peace Cookies for TWD this week as I catered mini-pastries for a reception at my Church on Monday evening (almost 300 pastries) so I'll put the World Peace Cookies on my list for a re-run. Sorry about missing TWD but I'm a bit baked-out.

This was my menu:
Dorie's Buttery Jam Cookies
Dorie's Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes (mini version)
Lemon cream tartlets using Dorie's Pate Sucre
Chocolate Mocha mini cookies

Does any of these sound familiar? Thanks to our wonderful TWD group and Dorie's recipes I was able to pull off this baking feat. I did manage to take a pic of all but the lemon tartlets. I got lots of complements and each of the cookies got named as a favorite by different guests. It was all so exciting and rewarding.

Next TWD I'm doing will be the cover cake, so I will learn to make yet another beautiful confection.

I have Dori's book and absolutely love her World Peace Cookies. Coincidentally, I've been craving them lately! Looks like your baking turned out quite well, by the way. It makes me hungry!

Wow Heather, you have been one busy busy girl. How is your oven???? Your Delectable Dorie Desserts are quite an accomplishment. No sweat for you though, I'm sure. Great job and I'm sure you will love the WP cookies. They are my favorite recipe in the book so far. Thank you for stopping by my blog.
