You'll love my easy to follow Tuiles Recipe - wafer thin crispy perfection to top ice cream or desserts. Ideal to use up leftover egg whites!
Recipe type: Biscuits
Serves: 36
  • 2 egg whites
  • 125 g (¾ cup) caster sugar
  • 60 g (½ cup) plain flour
  • Optional: 1 ½ teaspoons Speculaas Spice (I used VanDotsch) or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 60 g (¼ cup) butter, melted and cooled
  • Optional: Flaked almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 180℃ / 350℉ /Gas Mark 4.
  2. Add egg whites to a large bowl and whisk a little before adding the sugar and whisking until frothy.
  3. Stir in the flour (and spice if using) and then add the melted butter. Mix to a smooth batter.
  4. Can be kept in the fridge at this stage until required.
  5. Spoon onto lined baking trays and spread thinly into 7.5 cm (3 inch) diameter circles or use a template. 6 per sheet is ideal as the mixture spreads a little. Sprinkle with flaked almonds if you are making the almond tuiles.
  6. Place in the heated oven and bake for 7 to 8 minutes until the tuiles are just turning golden around the edges.
  7. Remove the baking tray from the oven and, working very quickly, lift each tuile off the baking tray with a palette knife and drape over a rolling pin or roll up around a wooden spoon handle and leave to cool.
  8. Bake in batches 2 trays at a time.
  9. Store in an airtight container.
Tuiles freeze well.
