Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup chestnut flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together sugar, flour, and lemon juice until smooth; stir in melted butter. Transfer to refrigerator and let chill for 4 hours.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a nonstick baking mat. Spread sugar mixture on prepared baking sheet in an even layer and bake until light brown in color, about 10 minutes. Using a sharp knife, cut out tuiles into 3- to 4-inch-long triangles.
