Check for colour towards the end of cooking. Ideally, the petits-fours should still be quite pale, just lightly browned around the outside.

Remarks

You can also add a small spoonful of kirsch or rum (to suit your own taste) at stage 1.

If you don't have the proper French "griottines", use glacé cherries instead.
