Apart from loving cookies, I love fragrances and smelling things, nice things of course. Thus, I am ecstatic because I had the opportunity to make some special cookies for Lancôme. They have a sensorial campaign where they display some of their perfumes with shortbread cookies that follow a recipe that were developed with flavors inspired in those same fragrances, how cool is that?

I am fascinated with the art of perfume making and I love to learn more about the notes that are found in some of my favorite fragrances. 


When I agreed to make the cookies, I was a little nervous because they gave me a recipe to follow. Since I normally sell my cookies using my own recipe, it was interesting for me to see how well I could stick to their creative recipe. So, I took a risk, I made a small batch of the cookies to see how the recipe worked, and the cookies turned out really, really, really well.

Let me share with you an excerpt by Lancôme behind the perfume “La Vie Est Belle”


La vie est belle Lancome cookies, Lancome shortbread cookies recipe, the cookie couture cookies, Lancome cookies, The cookie couture Lancome cookies,


"The concept of the fragrance is centered on the idea of natural and simple beauty, freedom from conventions and the choice of once own vision of happiness. The fragrance is a kind of outlook on life, inspired by joy and pleasure in small things.

This gourmand yet elegant composition is developed by perfumers Olivier Polge, Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo. The final formula is the result achieved after three years of probation and 5000 versions. Iris is the key ingredient of the perfume, surrounded by orange blossoms and jasmine in the heart. The composition’s opening provides fruity flavors of black currant and pear, while the base is warm, gourmand and powdery due to almond-like accords of tonka bean, praline, patchouli and vanilla. "

Wow, I love the description of the perfume! While I was making the cookie dough, adding the cotton candy extract paired with the pink and red food gel color, I was transported to Fauchon in France, sweet and sophisticated at the same time. Oh la la!!

For the Idôle inspired cookies the freshness of the lime juice, the warmth of the vanilla, and the yellow food gel color were in perfect harmony to create a cookie inspired in a modern, fresh and clean fragrance.

Idôle was created by Shyamala Maisondieu, Adriana Medina-Baez and Nadege le Garlantezec.  Idôle Eau de Parfum grants those who wear it the unwavering strength to dare to dream bigger.

This fresh and clean fragrance is ever-evolving throughout the day with bursts of inviting florals, energizing citrus and sultry white musks. Top notes are Pear and Bergamot; middle notes are Turkish Rose, Rose de Mai and Indian Jasmine; base notes are White Musk and Vanilla.”

In order to make this kind of recipe you need to be a little more patient. This is because the dough is so soft that sometimes it can give you a hard time while rolling it out and during the baking process. Shortbread cookies are most commonly baked in a baking pan and cut out after baking.



 I just posted a video on YouTube  about the differences in between a shortbread and a sugar cookie, please check it out!

Day of the dead cookie decorating ideas 2021

Day of the dead Altar, Day of the dead cookies, day of the dead altar, day of the dead bread, pan de muerto, ofrendas de pan de muerto, day of the dead decorated cookies ideas

Recently I have been thinking that sometimes we waste our time trying to fix the things we simply cannot fix. We should instead let things be and enjoy the moments that we spend with family and friends.  


In particular these couple of years have been very hard for so many. It has been so sad to lose so many friends and family members so unexpectedly. So this Day of the Dead I want to remember each one of them and thank them for the laughter and the special moments we shared with them.

I have had the opportunity to participate in various Day of Dead festivals and it brings me so much joy to share these traditions.


The first one I participated in was abut 15 years ago, and it seems that it was just yesterday.  My friend and I set up a huge altar in a history museum. It was so beautiful and my mom brought a lot of sugar skulls and alfeñiques all the way from Mexico. I really appreciate her effort in traveling with all of that, I wish I could still have all of the things she brought me. One of the things we still have are a couple of paper mache skeletons.

I recently was invited to showcase my creations in another Day of the Dead festivals. I didn't have too much time to decorate many cookies, but my husband gave me the idea to sell Pan de Muerto. This bread is one of the most important elements of the Altar. This bread is eaten in the cemeteries at the gravesite or placed as a tribute called an ofrenda.

We LOVE Pan de Muerto, it is a very soft sweetened round bun, (similar to brioche) often decorated with bone-shaped phalange pieces. It is flavored with orange blossom water and anis de estrella (anise) and after it comes out of the oven it is sprinkled with sugar. In our house we normally pair it with hot Mexican chocolate.

Here are some pictures of the event, the PYO cookies and the DIY cookie kits were a hit. The weather was perfect for an outside event and we were super happy to share some of our traditions.
