This playful gift box includes three types of classic French butter cookies. The galettes (thin biscuits) and palets (thick biscuits) are both made of 20% butter, resulting in crisp and richly flavored cookies that melt in your mouth. The cigarettes are wafer-thin butter biscuits rolled up into delicate little tubes. This French Butter Cookie Gift Box would make a sweet hostess, birthday or Valentine's Day gift, especially when paired with lovely French tea. Of course, you may just choose to save these buttery treats all for yourself.
Biscuiterie La Trinitaine has been making French butter cookies since 1955, when founder Lucien Petit stumbled upon a delicious new invention: rolled cigarette biscuits. Nowadays, the third generation of Petits run the family business, continuing the tradition of using the finest butter and other ingredients to make their classic French biscuits.
