    Hi everyone. I have a customer requesting a Canadian cookie called "mae west". I had never heard of it and can't seem to find anything on the internet or in cookbooks. She says it is like a white cake type cookie with a creme inside coated on the outside with chocolate. Any ideas? She says they were popular in Montreal where she is from.
    Thanks!

    I've never heard of them .................. maybe they're from Quebec. I have sent a z mail to that well known French chef BigBadBrenda (who hails from Montreal) and asked her to respond to your question icon_wink.gif

    I love love love Mae West cakes! We can't get them in North Carolina but when family visits from NFLD we request them! They usually get broken up on the trip but I don't care. I love them.

    I used to love Mae Wests! They used to be available here in Ontario (Hamilton area). I worked in a variety store all through high school and college and we sold them! So good!

    I love love love mae west and eat them often. I have been looking for several years now for the recipe for the cream filling. The rest is basic vanilla cake and chocolate coating but it's the cream filling that make them special. They have never been sold as a large family sized cake and now come in several different sizes as well as a double version. If any one ever finds out
    what the cream is made from I really love to know. It might just be a butter cream with a yellow food colour but I really dont think so.

    Remember these well. Port Perry used to have a Vachon outlet store. My parents would buy tons of the stuff then store it in the freezer.
    I would think the filling is more custard type then buttercream.
