Halloween Tuile Cookies

  • Yield: Makes about 30
Halloween Tuile Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper; set aside. Have dowels ready.

  2. Sift flour into one bowl and confectioners' sugar into another. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sifted confectioners' sugar on medium until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in egg whites, one at a time, until incorporated. Add sifted flour; mix well. Add vanilla.

  3. Divide the batter into four small bowls. Add gel paste one drop at a time until desired color is achieved.

  4. Place a stencil flat on the prepared pan. Using an offset spatula, spread a thin, even layer of batter over each opening; scrape off excess batter from the stencil. Carefully lift away stencil.

  5. Place tuiles in oven. The cookies will bake in about 5 minutes. Rotate the pan halfway through the baking time to promote even coloration. Remove them when slightly brown around the edges.

  6. Work quickly when removing tuiles from the oven; they must be hot and flexible for shaping. Use a spatula to remove the tuiles from the baking sheet, and immediately lay them over a dowel to create a curl. Remove tuiles from dowel once they have set. If the tuiles become too cool before shaping, you may return them to the oven for 30 seconds until they soften, or leave them flat. Store in an airtight container, at room temperature, for up to 1 week.

    this is my input, I usually love to sink right into a recipe, but I think that the cookie recipe is incomplete, and I wish the picture was closer, I am really not sure what dividing into four batches and why, what colors? curl how and which way and how should they look after, not hung on a tree. Just my opinion from a long time baker.

    I have to agree with you!!! This site is wonderful!!! It has given me so many ideas on a wide range of things that I can either use now or store away for future use.

    I think this site is wonderful! I look forward to my emails every day, whether I use an idea or not. There is something for everyone-use what you like, and ignore the rest. Simplify if you want to. But lets not get negative about something that is supposed to be fun-and lets face it, Halloween is a holiday that is meant to be weird and wild!

    I found a ghost and bat stencil by looking up a Martha project from October 2007 called the Trick-or-Treat Bags. It also has a couple other Halloween stencils as well. By reducing the size at the top of the page it is ideal for making the stencil for these cookies. Thanks for the plastic lid idea. We have lost thousands from our retirement these past few months. Lets all make cookies LOL!!!!

    Too much Halloween? Not possible! The economy is scary, not Halloween! How 'bout we just look at it as an opportunity to be childlike and to have fun-not always easy to do in these uncertain times. Go Martha! I think you like Halloween as much as I do.

    I agree with 123marlena, keep your derogatory comments to yourself if you don't like Halloween. No one is making you view the ideas/recipes...

    Dear cynsteinberg,I don't know how you could possibly have gone through Martha's extensive recipe collection ,or have not been able to find another use for this recipe that you like.Try using the varied sizes of cardstock alphabets and making birthday or baby shower trees in other colors.They don't have to be black or orange.Have fun.involve children for ideas.there is always a party waiting for a fresh idea.

    This is a comment for cynsteinberg - if you don't like Halloween keep your derogatory comments to yourself. The only insanity is yours.

  • cynsteinberg 10 Oct, 2008

    I agree with the last comment...although some recipes are interesting but not useful. I am sick and tired of all the ghoulish Halloween recipes: brains, skulls, bones,yech! How about limiting our exposure to this insanity?

  • avocahelen 10 Oct, 2008

    I have used the plastic lids from coffee cans and they work great. Martha had it on her site years ago.

  • sed81650 10 Oct, 2008

    Where is the stencil design for these shapes. They usually have a link to that, but I do not see it here.

  • Queenlalisa 10 Oct, 2008

    Real people want real recipes that they will make not Tuile! I thought the very first season of Martha was the best, the last 2 seasons they have started having too many recipes tha real people won't make. We aren't French chefs!LOL

  • Erlinda 10 Oct, 2008

    I think I recognize this recipe from a previous Martha Stewart collection or something. For the stencil part, do this: take a plastic lid (or two) from a large coffee can (or container of similar size); draw an outline of a ghost, pumpkin, bat - or something scary. Cut the outline with an x-acto knife, Now you have a sturdy stencil. With one had, hold the stencil flat to the cookie sheet, with the other follow the directions re: the offset spatula.

  • CatherineCullen 10 Oct, 2008

    Okay, Cookie-of-the-Day People. The stock market is in a free-fall. It's time for some really serious cookies. Like put-it-all-in-there, 500-calories-each cookies. I can't feel better about the world by sinking my teeth into a "Halloween Tuile." Besides, they'd shatter to pieces in my shaky, anxiety-ridden hands.

  • tuscanlover 10 Oct, 2008

    The recipe seems incomplete.

  • Susiebasketweaver 10 Oct, 2008

    Where does it give information about using STENCILS?

  • bittyro 10 Oct, 2008

    Yes. Think uber-gormet. Or if you prefer not to eat them, just decorations.

  • Pnutz 10 Oct, 2008

    Those are cookies?
