One fine day, I felt like being creative. I wished to bake something, which would seem more like an art piece, worth picturing. Tuiles seemed an appropriate choice to me. Seems like a complicated recipe, but it needs some of the very basic baking ingredients.
Do not miss onto trying this little-known cookie variety.
Yield: Almost 40-45 tuiles
- ¼ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 2/3 cup (85 grams) fine sugar
- 4 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- A pinch salt
- 1 cup(225 grams) all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (165 degree Celsius).
- Put butter and sugar in the medium sized bowl and beat until fluffy. Mix in egg whites, 1 at a time. Add in flour, salt, and vanilla.
- Line a baking sheet with a not-stick baking mat. Spoon 2 tablespoons batter onto the baking mat. Using a spatula, spread batter in desired shapes.
- Bake, rotating sheet halfway through, until edges of cookies turn golden, about 9 minutes.
- Do not over bake them. These tend to harden after cooling, so remove them from oven they are soft, then give them the desired shape.
