Citrus tuiles

Tuiles are very delicate, thin wafer cookies usually served with a dessert. Those citrus one are delicious! Caramel and crispy with intense orange flavour, nicely buttery. You have to be careful not to burn yourself while making them but they are worth taking this risk!

The recipe (mine is slightly modified) is from Christmas edition of Marta Stewart’s Living.

¾ cup sugar
½ cup wheat flour
¼ cup fresh orange juice
3 tbsp lemon juice
7 tbsp melted butter
¾ teaspoon orange zest
pinch salt
(important! The batter should be made a day before baking)

Mix flour, sugar and salt. Add lemon and orange juice. Slowly add butter, orange zest, mix until combined. Cover the bowl with a mixture inside and place it in a fridge (can be kept in a fridge even for a week).

Preheat the oven to 360F/ 180 oC. Spoon teaspoon size batter portion on a silicon mat. With a wet hands spread the batter ( about 8 mm thick). Bake for 10-12 min. until golden brown. Slightly cooled quickly roll cookie to the halfway point using the handle of a small wooden spoon (it is easy to make them on a table edge). If the cookie is too cold and it’s hard to form it, place it again for a while into the oven. You can keep the tuiles for 3 days in a sealed box, alternated with the parchment.
