Dessert Blitz: Chocolate chips with almonds

In one month’s time, I will be back in New York. I, of course, have mixed feelings about this. But one thing is for sure: I have a lot of sweets to get through. Today…

Chocolate chip cookie (with almonds) from Blé Sucré.

I’ve been dying to find a good chocolate chip cookie in Paris. It’s not easy.

So I was quite excited to see a new specimen to try at Blé Sucré. It's only been on the menu for two months and, admittedly, it didn’t look like much: dark and flat and ho-hum, so unlike the wildly bumpy, puffed light with sugar and butter cookies that I enjoy oh so much in New York.

But, quel surprise, Fabrice le Bourdat's creation was delicious in a nutty, savory sort of way.

Tell me if there’s anything you want to sample vicariously through me… it would be a honor. And my pleasure.

Oh girl... It's a good thing I just ate a coconut flour (gluten-free, dairy-free, low sugar) muffin with cherry jam just now, and after a lunch of lentils and tuna on lettuce. I'd be weeping and gnashing my teeth otherwise, drooling with hunger, and mourning not eating all the stuff with flour in it!

As it is, I am okay, and that cookie looks like it ROCKED. I bet it would be really yummy with a glass of cold milk, huh.

I've been perusing all the delicious things of which you have partaken over the past few posts. Everything looks fantastic. But I confess what mostly ran through my mind while looking was, "I sure hope you have some elastic-waist pants in a size up if you are going to keep eating sweets at a rate of a sweet every two days for the next month!"

I hope you know this is me here, and have my sweet little "voice" typing these things, lol. Otherwise it could sound bitchy, huh. Thank god we have already met in person and I think you know I am not that way at all. :D (I hope! I hope!)

But dearest, you are going to have to hire a crew to roll you on the plane after the next month with all the sweet eating in this Dessert Blitz. I'm just sayin'. *giggle*

Actually, I think you might be okay if all you eat are goodies over the coming month. Forget about Vegan Mondays, and just have Sweet Freak Everydays. And then you can start a detox (and a blog about detoxing!) after the new year, huh. :) There ya go. Problem solved.

Thank you for the gorgeous, gorgeous photos & descriptions of all the sweeties here. Nothing like a little vicarious sweetie living, and I know I can count on you for that. :)

Been 14+ years since my one and only trip to Paris. Remember it like yesterday of course...what FOOD!! Ate some splendid foodstuffs at Tarte Julie...a pic of their goodies would be great. Assuming they're still there?
