PETIT FOURS

Petit fours, in French petits fours, according to Alan Davidson are small cookies or cakes.

The name means “small oven” and they probably get their name from the small ovens in which they were baked in the 18th century. Another version says that they were so named because they were baked in a low temperature oven (à petit four in French).

Petits fours are divided into four categories, as we read on the website of the Auguste Escoffier School.

The first category is dry petits fours (petit fours sec), which are cookies baked for a long time at low temperature, such as sablés, macarons and palmiers.

The second category is petits fours glaces. These are mini cakes coated with almond paste (marzipan), wrapped in sugar paste or chocolate. This type is usually decorated with intricate icing designs.

The third category is fresh petits fours (petit fours frais). This includes all the sweets that should be consumed on the same day, because they lose their quality over time.

The fourth category is the masked petits fours (petit fours déguisés), ie fresh or dried fruit dipped in chocolate or caramel.
