Sugar Tuiles

These delicate caramelized cookies are just substantial enough to sandwich cold, custardy creme brulee. Unlike classic tuiles, which are curved, these are flat and lacy, making them perfect for our Chocolate-Creme Brulee Ice Cream Sandwiches.

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 25 mins
  • yield: Makes about 30 cookies (enough for 15 sandwiches)




  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted

Cook's Note

Cut-out tuiles can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter, sugar, and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat until bubbling. Remove from heat, and whisk in flour.

  2. Step 2

    Spread half the batter on a nonstick-baking-mat-lined baking sheet to create a thin layer (but not so thin that you can see the baking mat). Bake until dark amber, about 9 1/2 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Remove from oven; carefully remove baking mat from sheet, and transfer tuile to a cool surface to harden. Let cool for 1 minute. Cut out tuiles using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, and transfer to a cool surface to harden. If tuile gets too hard before cutting, return to oven for about 30 seconds to soften, then continue cutting.

  4. Step 4

    Repeat with remaining batter.

    I wish Martha had included a video with this one. Everything went well until I went to cut the cookies out. The cookie cutter (which is a high quality one) would not go through the batter even if it was soft. I had to make 2 batches to come up with 20 cookies. They look like the photo and taste great but the cutting out was really an issue. Suggestions for next time???
