French for “tiles,” these delicate tuiles are so-named because their curved shape resembles the clay roof tiles of houses in southern France.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans, (1 ounce)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 large egg whites
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 300°F. Lightly oil 2 baking sheets or coat them with cooking spray.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Tips & Notes
- Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. If they lose their crispness, place them in a 350°F oven for about 1 minute, then reshape.
