Ingredients

  • 250 g (3 cups) flaked almonds
  • 140 g egg whites from about 5 eggs
  • 160 g (1/3 cup) sugar
  • 50 g (3.5 tbsp) butter melted
  • 30 g (1/4 cup) flour

Instructions

Prepare the tuile batter

  1. Place the flaked almonds, sugar and flour in a bowl. Incorporate the egg whites, mix well, then add the melted butter. Mix until homogeneous, then chill for 1h in the refrigerator.

Bake and shape the tuile

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C (375F). Scoop the tuile batter with a tablespoon and place on a baking sheet. Use a fork to spread the mixture as thinly as possible into an oval shape.
  2. Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes or until evenly golden.

  3. Remove the tuiles from the tray one by one using a spatula and immediately place on a rolling pin or a bottle of wine to give them their curved shape. 

  4. Let the tuiles cool down on the rolling pin, then immediately transfer to an airtight container. Any moisture in the air will make the tuiles soft and soggy.
