Happy French Friday! I am doing a make-up recipe for French Fridays with Dorie today because I couldn’t find a key ingredient (kumquats) for this week’s recipe. I have been assured that kumquats will be in the market in a couple weeks, so I will make that recipe soon. Instead I made Almond-Orange Tuiles. I am down to only two make-up recipes! Not including the one I didn’t make this week…so really three.
Almond-Orange Tuiles are a lacy, light, little cookie. They are very easy to mix together, taking only minutes. The tricky part happens after they are done baking. You are to transfer these lacy cookies onto a rolling pin so they can set in their curved shape. The first one I tried ended up in a little lump on the counter. It almost slid down between the stove and the counter, but I caught it just in time!
I finally got the hang of making these pretty cookies and I thought they were delicious. The flavor from the orange juice is subtle but nice. I ate these on their own, but I think they would be at their best adorning something like ice cream or a creamy cake. They would also be a nice addition to a dessert buffet.
Have a nice weekend, everyone!
