Pecan Tuiles

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/pecan_tuiles.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 1994

French for “tiles,” these delicate tuiles are so-named because their curved shape resembles the clay roof tiles of houses in southern France.

About 2 dozen cookies | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Lightly oil 2 baking sheets or coat them with cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add pecans and stir until the butter is lightly browned and the pecans are toasted, about 1 minute. Transfer to a medium bowl. Whisk in sugar. Add egg whites, flour and vanilla; whisk just until smooth.
  3. Drop the batter by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Smooth the batter with the back of a spoon or a small metal spatula into thin circles 3 inches in diameter. Bake, one sheet at a time, until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately loosen the cookies with a metal spatula.
  4. While still hot, remove the cookies from the baking sheet one by one and curl each over a rolling pin. If the cookies become too firm to shape, return them to the oven until pliable, about 30 seconds. Once the cookies have set, carefully transfer them to a rack to finish cooling.
