The tuiles were light and yet savory with a touch of sweetness that satisfied a sweet tooth I've been neglecting for a while now. But I know my end result was still way thicker than they were intended to be.
OK, so on the results!The first tuile I made, I tried dying some of the batter as suggested and then making a pattern on my butterfly, but I wasn't a huge fan of the way it turned out. I curled it over an ice cream scoop so it would cool bent and then added a line of whipped cream down the center. Meh. So-So.Experimenting further, I thought I would do a plain butterfly with the powered sugar sprinkled on top and then make a couple chocolate flowers with whipped cream centers. I liked how these turned out even better. And finally, because it was getting late and I wanted to use up all my chocolate batter, I made these cannoli-inspired tuiles with a whipped cream filling and powdered sugar sprinkled on top. These turned out pretty cute too. But wow, rolling these suckers while they were still hot was a challenge! If you wait till they're cool enough to touch, then they'll crack, so I had to sit there rolling hot cookies as fast as I could without burning myself to bad. Yikes!
As for the overall flavor, it wasn't my favorite and I probably won't be adding this recipe to the box, but it was fun to learn something new and maybe I'll try modifying it in the future.
Thanks Daring Bakers for another great challenge!
