Fall Leaf Tuile Cookies
Tuiles are thin, crisp almond cookies that are traditionally molded over a rolling pin, or another arched form, while they are still warm. Once set, their shape resembles the curved French roofing tiles for which they're named. Create a fall variation on these classic French cookies by shaping them with a leaf-shaped stencil. The basic tuile dough can be enhanced by flavorings such as chocolate, vanilla, lemon, or orange. These delicate cookies are delicious served alone or alongside a bowl of ice cream.
Work quickly when removing the cookies from the oven: If you wait too long, the cookies will harden on the baking sheet and won't be flexible enough to curve over the rolling pin. If this happens, you can return the cookies to the oven for a few seconds, and try again.
