I had so much fun playing with these cookies. I may never use a glass bowl to serve dessert, ever again! Simple, delicious, crispy, and light, tuiles are a versatile cookie with endless possibilities. While sitting at work this week all I could think about was rushing home to make another batch. Ideas kept popping in my head and for those of you who are uber-creative, I bet you could elevate these to a thing of beauty!
Tuile is the French word for tile. Tuile cookies are often shaped like a pringle potato chip. Think "clay roofing tiles" ... in French of course. Somewhere, someone decided these would be terrific shaped in a bowl and used to serve creamy desserts. Brilliant idea! Tuiles taste a little like the Pepperidge Farm Pirouette Wafer Cookies.
