Chocolate Pecan CookiesIf you follow me, you know the world of Pâtisserie, Chocolaterie and Boulangerie. Here’s another word you need to know – Biscuiterie, from the word biscuit. This is the world of cookies, biscuits and the small, crispy pastries, usually served during tea-time.

Chocolate Pecan CookiesChocolate Pecan CookiesOne of the most famous areas where you can find amazing biscuits in France is the charming Alsace region, in the east of France not far from the border with Germany. In almost every village or town in Alsace you can find biscuit shops with an abundance of cookies in different shapes, textures and varied flavors. The big “danger” in these products is that they are small, crunchy, not too sweet and can be snacked on without stopping.

If in the past it was a product that is mainly associated with American culture, today the cookies have been given a different place in the pastry vitrines, with pastry chefs like Cedric Grolet, Yann Couvreur and more, producing them using special techniques, with fine ingredients and different and varied flavors.
