Makes about 30 cookies (enough for 15 sandwiches)

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.


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour, sifted


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Meltbutter, sugar, and honey in asmall saucepan over mediumheat until bubbling. Removefrom heat, and whisk in flour.
