Vanilla or Chocolate Tuiles

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

'Tuile' is the French term for 'tile'. These cookies are very pliable when still hot and are traditionally draped over a rolling pin. When cool, they would resemble the tiles on old French villas. To create Chocolate Tuiles, substitute 3/4 cake flour plu

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • In a bowl cream the butte and sugar together on medium high speed. Beat in the egg whites, one at a time. Beat in the vanilla.
  • Lower the speed and add the flour (or flour cocoa mixture) mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • Cut a small hole (about 3 1/2 inch diameter) in a thin piece of cardboard or plastic to serve as a template in forming the tuiles. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat and place the stencil on it. Using a spatula, place a small amount of the batter in the center of the hole of the stencil and spread it out evenly. Carefully lift the stencil off. Repeat for more cookies.
  • Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and while still hot, remove them from the pan and place them either over a rolling pin, over a glass or in the hollows of an empty egg carton. Allow to sit a few minutes to harden and cool. Store in an airtight container.
