Sofia Vassilieva
Have  u met Little ELOISE??? No????

A delight full ECSTATIC child who finds mischief with enthusiasm& exuberance  and gives it a very good name.....From her bright red ribbon to cutest smile....and frumpled hair...everything about her is ADORABLE :-))))

An irrepressible imp and cherubic charmer, an enchanter...oh thats LIttle Eloise for u.....THen u must and u r about to,right here ....right now.....and i know she'll enthrall u too.....

ANd whether u meet her at the Plaza [NY] or at .....

CHRISTMASTIME...u'll fall in love with her too......
The best part about Christmas is Getting presents ,she squeals but what she means is things we do for others - not the things we get. ........

Right into ur face[love her for that:-)], looking straight into ur eyes....u fall in love as she skips along for her daily rounds..basking in the ribbons, holly, and jingle bell cheer of the festive season, the precocious six-year-old introduces u to her "sweet elegant" world - The Plaza Hotel in New York City.....oh the bells do ring.....
Yeah, Eloise ,more than happily and joyfully ,looking right at u directly [in2 d cam], keeps u informed and abreast of everything ,that u cant help ,but not only be a part of her life ...but an absolutely important part at that ....

And .....No u dont have to wait till December to meet LITTLE Eloise.....this twinkling merry story about Little ELOISE,am going to regale to u right away as she's buzzling in my thoughts and heart always(ofcourse i love her very much)......Bursting with Spring is the right time to dance with Little Eloise ...oh the joys of Spring....

Frolicking, absolutely cute...and adorably so Little Eloise lives at the Plaza ,in their Suite Penthouse ,with her Nanny......She what u could call as every bodys adorable darling ....colourful, expressive, full of charm and class.....all at once..extremely energetic too....

And she'll fill ur heart with bubbling joy and delite as she leads u to discover the thrills and excitement in every day life in every day gestures in the beautifull gift of life......

SHe fills my day and i so love her and fall in love with her everyday.....Oh come fall in love......

I promise u ....u'll fall in love with this little adorable bundle of joy who'll have u squealing in delite too .....

This precious adorable bundle of a bounce , is a daughter of a very wealthy woman ,parented long distance over phone calls and promises of being there at Christmas ,and lives with her Nanny here   [Julie Andrews darling.....ofcourse u know by now am talking about a movie which has me smitten, well Little Eloise sure does...]....

Julie Andrews and Sofia Vassilieva
But she always escapes the ''watchfull''[ not so] eye of her Nanny to meddle, [in the very very good +tive way]diving into every body's lives and set things straight where required ,and very sucess fully so....
She skips along with a positive energy around her, dancing along ,as she faithfully ,wakes up all eager beaver and bright eyed and bushy tailed,every morning ....bouncing all over the Plaza for her ''rounds''.....keeping u abreast and so involved with all happenning,looking right at ur face into ur eyes,every now and then ,oh i love that about her.....and she has u glued ...whether she's taking a Prince for a ''ride'' or bringing together true love....Oh yeah She's a match maker too......and the debutante ball wouldn be a True Ball , a sure sucess w/o her and her Caviar ideas......
A kind word and love for everybody ,whether they love her with true affection or are being politely tolerant, she has her way....helping the Plaza outa many a disaster too:-))),irrepressible Eloise has a plan for every plight, her pretty nose finds her in every body's business and her heart speaks a lesson to all on learning to love ur neighbor and not judging by ur social standn...gosh i so love her...

And as dear Nanny puts the darling to sleep ,with a bedtime story and a DO NOT DISTURB ,sign around her neck.........she seems like an angel ....An angel to love....
  Eloise at ChristmastimeAnd why Lemon BArs for Little ELOISE,coz jus like her spunk ,these to are a sunshine bar....

Capturing the spirit and charm of everything u'll love .....whether its at the Plaza or Christmas time.....she'll win u over in second....heart felt smiles galore ....that pop from the heart....

A SUNSHINE BAR that brings the light to ur SMILE JUS LIKE LITTLE ELOISE...and a Vanilla Bean to bring out the beauty of fragrance in this adorable little darling........and with never a dull moment....

Lemony sweet with a tang that only zest can bring-is that what made me make these lemon no...have them bookmarked ever since saw 'em at GERI's ....

Now the only change i did was halve the base while keeping the filling the same coz i wanted more of a filling....worked well....

adapted from HEART& SOUL COOKING 


1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1-1/6 cups all - purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 - 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
6 tablespoons lemon juice
4 eggs

In a bowl, beat butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar at medium speed until smooth. Beat in 2 cups flour until dough is no longer crumbly. Pat into a ball.

Press dough evenly into a buttered and flour 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

(i actually made do with 3 tin foils of different sizes) Bake in a 350 F oven until golden, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile in a food processor, or in a bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, whirl or beat sugar, remaining 1/3 cup flour, baking powder, grated lemon peel, lemon juice and eggs to blend. Pour onto hot crust. [ I DID cool  the crust awhile]

 Bake until lemon mixture is no longer runny in the center (cut to test), 35 to 40 minutes.

Remove from the oven and dust with remaining 2 tablespoons powdered sugar.[ or strawberry preserve as i did:-))),sweet but fantasttic...]

Let cool completely in pan, then cut into 24 bars.

Makes: 24 bars

  54. Hello dear
    you are more than welcome to use the recipe and do whatever. I have some tips of my own for the chocolate chips cookies, now one like them crunchy except me and you, the rest prefer them ouwy gouwy and crumbly, I found the sugar is too much I dont use 2 cups total make it 13/4cups, and also to keep them ouwy gouwy and crumbly all week if they last, roll them one by one, put them on a baking sheet and freeze 30 mint and bake them directly from freezer to oven. try one batch and let me know...

  55. Hey ARLETTE, am so glad to have some great company for crispy cookies, thanxx for all the links and yup will email u a few of my tips too, though yet ,my cookies do get a wee softer the next day:-((
