January Tuiles

I have never made Tuiles before! Shocking huh?! OK, I’m sure most of my friends and family have never heard of them before. Honestly I wasn’t very excited about making these, BUT, I had all the ingredients on hand and it looked fairly easy. Well, let me tell you, these little cookies are addicting! Luckily the batches are small so I couldn’t do too much damage to my waistline.

I made little “cups” to hold some premium vanilla bean ice cream, topped it with a little toasted coconut and drizzled dark chocolate over it all. Mmmmmmm, these unassuming little cookies are crisp, buttery and were so much better than ANY ice cream cone or cup I have ever had. I’m sure that if I spent a bit more time on them, I could have a lot of fun making templates and getting more creative. It was tricky working with the batter – too thick and they are chewy (not that that’s a bad thing), too thin and they are too delicate to get off the cookie sheet and draped over a muffin tin. Timing is everything – they needed a minute or so to firm up straight out of the oven, but too much time and they were already set. Even the experimental ones were delicious and the crumbles got eaten up as well. Thanks for another great recipe!!!
