Classic Tuile Recipe Video

Tuile is that thin crisp cookie that accompanies your plated dessert. It's very easy to make and use. Tuile is a lot of fun so use your imagination! Just be aware that tuile is very sensitive to moisture so you can't make it ahead of time - if you do, it will lose its shape. You can make the paste ahead of time and save it for about 1 week in the fridge.
