These are amazing. I shouldn't even look at them. I am trying to lose a couple of pounds.

Bonjour chère Génie,

Une publication gourmande qui n'est pas pour me déplaire !

Ton choix aurait été le mien sans hésitation.
Gros bisous ☼

Gosh ... very tempting Genie. Paris sure knows how to dress a window.

Vreni said...

Would you share the pistache-framboise with me?

Japanese people say "Eating starts in eyes". I ate all of them all. (Do you recomend to rub some Pepto on my eyes...).

Delicious! This image is a whole trip to Paris. And of course, the dessert was the "Miam, miam"!!!. Thanks a lot, dessert included.

Gorgeous! The French are such masters of not only the art of pastry but of the display of it (or anything!). Beautiful photo.

William Kendall said...

All of that looks far too tasty!

Alexa said...

I also think I could gain weight just looking at these—but miam!

RedPat said...

I will share with you!

James said...

They all look so delicious. I think I would be happy with any or all of them. :-)

Randy said...

Wonderful looking treats.

Well! I know now that if I want some blog attention, put up a photo of delicious pastries... the color does not hurt either!

Danar, you made me laugh out loud with the Pepto comment - hehe.

Vreni, let's meet again in Paris and we'll find one to share.

Jack, a few pounds? Surely you walked enough in Italy to keep your stylish figure.

To all, I cannot fathom how difficult it is to make these. I make macarons, and the challenge is to have the perfect mix of firmness, symmetry, thin outer shell, and inner chewiness... How ever do they make them so big?

By the way, I took out all of those pesky calories in this photo, so enjoy!
