    I agree- what a perfect bakery treat! Your description of a jam filled cookie was spot on. I loved making this cake this month, good choice. Your photos turned out beautiful as well!

    Not sure what I like more, your gateau basque or that gorgeous cake plate! And I totally agree about it’s cookie-like quality — it’s the cake version of shortbread! 😉

  3. Oh Carrie this is great! I visited Spain a few years ago and fell in love with these cakes. I haven’t been able to recreate them successfully yet so I will give this recipe a try! They often had pastry cream in them in the region I was in and that is my favorite ones.

    Thanks for this!
