Almond Tuile Biscuits

Ingredients

100g Sugar

150g Sliced/flaked Almonds

60ml Honey

50ml Cream

40g Butter

1 tablespoon Plain Flour

½ tablespoon Vanilla Extract

Zest of an Orange

Method

Preheat oven to 180ºC

Heat the sugar, cream, honey, butter, orange zest and vanilla extract and mix together thoroughly when the ingredients are soft and fluid. Bring the mixture to the boil and add the almonds followed by the flour. Remove pan from heat when the ingredients have all combined and have been mixed together. Allow the mixture to cool and spread thin small circles of the paste onto a baking tray which has either been lined with baking paper or silicone sheet.

Bake in the centre of the oven for around 5 minutes or when they appear to be cooked eg golden brown.

It might be possible to use a tuile template for this recipe but as the texture is a little coarser than a smooth paste due to the almonds it might prove to be a little more difficult. If you want to try the template, follow the instructions below.

Line a baking sheet with baking paper or a silicone sheet and place the template in position.

Spread tuile mixture over the cut out shapes then with a palette knife, pushing down lightly, draw the blade across the template to remove all surplus paste. Make sure all the shapes are completely filled with the paste then carefully remove template. If you have mixed the paste to the correct consistency there should be very little ‘spreading’ of the shape when the template is removed.

Bake as above.
