Palet de dame nougatine cookie by Delacre

This cookie is again very easy to make!  Made with my some of my favorite ingredients sugar and butter 😉

If you don’t feel like cooking it yourself, only one solution, buying them at the Delacre boutique in Brussels


For the cookie:


  • 65g Butter (room temperature, butter has to be soft)
  • 65g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 75g flour
  • Pinch of salt

For the nougatine:

  • 300g Sugar
  • 50ml water
  • 100g pine nuts

TIP! Make sure all the measures are correct as with pastry cooking it just needs to be precise.

Getting started : Nougatine

BE CAREFUL when making the caramel, do not touch with your hands as it will leave some nasty burn marks!!

  • Put the 300g sugar and 50ml of water in a cooking pot on the heat just until the caramel gets the desired color (own choice).

  • When it has the desired color put the pine nuts and stir.
  • Quickly dump the caramel on an oven tray with baking paper on it. Equalize it using a steel spatula

Getting started with the cookies:

  • Mix the soft butter with the 65g of sugar either using a machine or using a dough scraper until no loose sugar is visible anymore

  • Add the egg and mix (it will stay a bit lumpy)
  • Add the flour and mix until you get a firm dough

  • Put the dough in a piping bag.

Fill piping bag

  • Take a baking tray with baking paper on it and use the piping bag to make nice rounds (see picture below). You can choose the size you prefer, but I prefer making them smaller (this way I can eat more)

  • Break you nougatine in small pieces and put a small piece of it in the middle of every cookie.
