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.
It is one that must be familiar to most pastry chefs. I learned about how fun tuille are in my introduction to baking and pastry class. The chef showed us how to make little twizzles, spoons, stars and fortune cookies.
I thought it would be fun to try the fortune cookies again. I baked circles of the batter with dots and swizzles of cocoa batter and then folded them over a little note and wrapped them up.
I think this batter was a little more greasy than the tuille batter I'd used in the past, it got the notes really greasy, which wasnt terribly appetizing, but it was fun to see the way the designs were distorted.
I'd love to have got busy with lots of fun and creative designs, but time didnt allow, please visit the other daring bakers for much more ideas and recipes!
