“These are small, delicate little cookies which look like tiles, hence the name "tuiles". They take a little practice to get just right, but are really worth the effort. They are great with sorbets, glacees, fruit salads, or just on their own with tea. Prep time does NOT includes cool down time in fridge. I leave the cookie dough chilling overnight . I've described how to get the shape for the curly tile, but you can leave them flat, or drape over a glass for additional shapes. This is not a large amount of batter - you can always double or triple the amount.”
12 cookies
