This was a fun cookie to make and eat. I really enjoyed the process and they were not difficult at all. I think these would be especially fun around Christmas time, but if I were to do that I would hunt down the candied orange (I made do without this time around because I didn't see it at my grocery) as I bet that would add a nice festive touch. What really surprised me is how much you could taste the rum in the cookies. My husband will love that. He hasn't tasted them yet, but I know he will love the flavor combination. He isn't much of a drinker, but he does love a good boozy dessert. My kids however, didn't care for the adult taste of these cookies. And even though I halved the recipe, it still made a lot of cookies considering the kids won't eat them.

This was a fun dessert to make and eat. I made mine without the espresso so the kids would enjoy it, but I would love to try it with the espresso. I found the whole process much easier than I thought it would be. The profiteroles were a snap and I would like to make them again, but with a cream inside. I also might make them a little bigger, but they sure were cute this petite size.

I was intrigued by this recipe. Could something with non fat yogurt taste good? Well the answer in our house was mixed. My husband did not care for this and he usually likes everything. I thought it was good (but I have never met a pie or tart I didn't like) and both my kids liked it. I thought it was a nice substitute for a heavier cream pie or even cheesecake, but my husband declared it "kinda weird." So I don't think I will be making it again, but I did enjoy making it. I love the Baking with Julia pie crust recipe, so it was nice to have some extra pie dough on hand. I used one of the pie crusts to make a Toll House cookie pie as a gift. So all in all the experience was a good one, even it it was "kinda weird" for my husband.
