Icebox Tiramisu

“The “Petit Beurre”, or “Véritable Petit Beurre”, also known under the initials “VPB”, is a kind of shortbread from Nantes, that is best known in France. Le Petit Beurre LU was invented by Louis Lefèvre-Utile in 1886. A cookie cutter in the form of Petit Beurre was made on September 8, 1886. But Louis Lefèvre did not file the trademark “Petit Beurre LU” until April 9, 1888 to the Nantes Commercial Courts.

The characters of the writing are intended to be a reminder of the writing books that the grandmother of one of the creators of Le Petit Beurre would read. The biscuit is watered with milk before baking to get a “homemade” look.” (Source: Wikipedia)

Icebox Tiramisu

In Greece, Papadopoulos family was the first to introduce cookies such as Petit Beurre. The family consisting of the mother and her sons were making cookies in Istanbul in their home kitchen. After Greece lost the war with Turkey along with the thousands of Greek refugees coming from Turkey, the family arrived at Piraeus port. They decided to sit to a coffee shop to rest a bit and drink something and there they found out that Greeks had absolutely no idea what a cookie was.

Just like all the other refugees, without any money, they reside to a home that government provided for them. There they start baking, what else, their cookies. The mother is making and baking the cookies and the children sell them in bulk. Slowly but steadily the family expands and creates a small industry making cookies. During World War II the industry supplies the army with salty cookies as they are easy to transport and they do not need any special conservation.

In 1972, they create the Caprice, a cigar like sweet filled with praline that is sold today in over 40 countries around the world. The company has gained many international awards for its quality of products and today its products are sold everywhere.

These last days temperature hit 45° C / 113°F. It was one of the hottest periods in ten years and I thought that a frozen sweet should be the best remedy for such weather. I made this frozen icebox making a tiramisu cream and using Petit Beurre cookies from Papadopoulos brand covered with dark chocolate. If you cannot find them you can use any cookies you like. It was absolutely divine!
