Classic French Potatoes Anna – Gratin Pie with a Creamy Twist. Also known as Potatoes (Pommes) Anna, the original potato gratin is a classic French dish.

Classic French Potatoes Anna – Gratin Pie with a Creamy Twist

Said to be created by Chef Adolfe Duglere in the 19th century and named after grande cocotte Anna Deslions, the dish became so revered that a specialty copper pan like this was designed specifically for ensuring a professional outcome when making it. Traditionally, it is prepared with clarified butter and seasonings (how could it not be delicious?) And then baked until the center is soft and buttery and the exterior, deliciously crispy. With its quick and easy, no-nonsense prep and enticing presentation, it is a quintessential holiday party dish, capable of holding its own amidst any holiday spread. Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.

They’re delicious, of course. But to me, they’ll always be my mom’s cookies. And that, of course, is what really makes them so special.
