It’s Daring Baker time again, and this month’s challenge is brought to us by Karen of Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf. They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux. Not only were Karen and Zorra kind enough to gift us with great recipes, they gave us a variety of alternatives, too! On the Alternative DB list (go alt DB’ers!) someone posted on sugar free, vegan Sesame Lace Tuiles from the Millennium cookbook. I was quite intrigued, so I had to try them. With gluten free flour, of course.
The recipe was simple and quite easy. The only issue was my second guessing! I pulled them out of the oven at the correct time and they were total mush. So I popped them back in, and they still weren’t hard. Well, I forgot about them for a couple of minutes, and then the were too hard to roll up. Which just gave me an excuse to make a bunch of batches. If you want them flat, it doesn’t matter. But if you want to play…well, it’s a fine line between to hard and too soft. DH, my head taster, liked them a good deal. They were more than a bit greasy, but the texture and flavor was interesting. The only annoying thing is that they’re dropped by the 1/2 tsp fulls and spread like mad, so you’re making batch after batch…and I’m not a huge fan of never ending cookie batches!
Please do check out all of the Daring Bakers and their creations…it’s always a pleasure, and I can’t wait until next month’s challenge!
