Which cookies to choose for a successful charlotte?
Several cookies may be suitable for making your dessert:
- the boudoirs
- spoon cookies
- the pink cookies from Reims
The traditional ones will prefer the boudoirs.
Beginners will opt for spoon cookies. They wrap better, and prevent the cream from overflowing from your charlotte. They also have a softer side!
Fans of originality will adopt the pink cookies from Reims for the colorful touch. They are perfect for all charlottes made from red fruits!
And if not you can also make homemade spoon cookies
How to have a soft cookie?
You simply have to soak them in syrup! Soak them by turning them over. But be careful, a few seconds are enough! If they eat too much syrup, they will be brittle.
How do you get a trim that fits well?
You can use a gelatin sheet or agar-agar to freeze your filling. Before incorporating the gelatin, immerse it in cold water (for about 10 minutes). Wring it out and incorporate it into your just warm mixture.
If you make a foam (from fruits, at chocolate, etc.) you will not need it! It can be fixed on its own after a few hours in the refrigerator.
