    I made these and they are beautiful! I'll do this again. I got a stencil in a craft store. Crafters use these to paint designs on walls. They are made of plastic and are flexible. You lay the stencil on the silpat, then thinly spread the tuile dough over the stencil. Lift the stencil carefully. You'll need to wash the stencil often, also allow silpat and cookie sheet to cool before repeating the procedure. These are time consuming, but worth it!

    Trace leaf shape onto plastic tub lid. Cut out the shape be careful not to damage the outlined shape. Use the tub lid with the outlined shape to lay down the tuile paste evenly. The cut out shape is waste . Use an exacto knife and it will keep the shape smooth.

    The plastic stencil has a thickness to it. When you run a spatula of batter over the stencil and then peel the stencil away, a very thin sheet of dough in the stencil shape remains. This becomes the paper-thin cookie.

    I still don't understand, if you put the stencil down and spread the dough on top, then lift the stencil off where's the dough going, its still on the stencils, do you cook the cookie with the stencil on it?? Does not make sense. Can someone try to explain again, please, its just too kooky for my head this morning. Thank you soooo much

    To ERINLOFTIS: I was confused also...I think the stencil is a cut out of a leaf (an outline) and you lay the outline on the baking sheet and fill in the leaf shape and then lift.

    CORRECTION: Place stencil on baking sheet, spread dough over stencil, lift stencil, continue placing stencl on baking sheet and spreading dough over it, making as many leaves as you like. When done, wash the excess off the stencil with soap and water OR toss it if it's one you don't want.

    Erinlotis: You place the stencil on your baking sheet covered with either Silpat (if you have one or parchment paper if not) and then spread a thin layer of dough over it. Life the stencil and on your baking sheet will be a leaf shape. Continue laying the stercil on the baking sheet and spreading dough over it until you fill your baking sheet with leaves. Then bake. If it's astencil you wish to keep, just wash the excess dough off when you're done. Hope this helps!

    I am confused about the directions. What do you do with the stencil after you lift it off the mat with the batter on it? Doesn't make sense to me. Can someone please explain? Thanks!
