Notre Histoire


This recipe was invented by Pol Adam,
head pastry chef for King Albert 1st
of Belgium at the beginning of
the 20th century. Désirés are very rich
in almonds, with no butter or egg yolk,
almost no flour and an unreasonable
amount of vanilla. These ingredients give it
a hard consistency on the initial bite,
and then it melts.
