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!

Great job with these, Karen! The tuiles are still on my to-do list. They look perfectly golden.
You did a beautiful job on these, Karen! Glad you were able to get them done! These were a favorite of mine and plan on making them again for the holidays!
Karen, they look wonderful, you did a fantastic job. I remember when we made these I found them so difficult and mine were not pretty. Wow, you only have 3 make up recipes to do, that’s great.
I’ll never catch up with all that I missed. Have a great weekend.
I too remember having a hard time shaping these. Mine were ugly, though they tasted good. I’m impressed with how close you are to being caught up!
Oh, my gosh, yours are perfect! I think most of us struggled with these gems!
Karen, your tuiles look just right! I think you are one of the few successes on this. Mine were NOT a success.
It is funny how two of you did the same make up this week. I am impressed that you only have 3 make ups to do. We enjoyed the duck, I hope you do too.
You hit the jackpot on the first try. I think when I baked them, I was able to pick out 3 or 4 passable tuiles to photograph. As I recall, many of us struggles with this recipe. As I recall, I blamed my failure on the “altitude”. Since moving back to Colorado, I blame all my cooking failures on the altitude! A really lovely job, Karen, with just the right amount of brown at the edges. I bet they were delicious.
Beautiful job with these. I remember having the rolling pin of shame when I attempted this recipe…
