(A late!) ffwD: Almond Orange Tuiles

20131206_202658

Thursday night was my law office’s Christmas party. So, due to my poor planning, I wasn’t able to make these almond orange tuiles until this morning. (I was able to pull it together enough to prepare the dough Friday night for its overnight rest though!) I only had sliced almonds on hand, so I chopped those up, thinking a few skins wouldn’t destroy the look or taste of the tuiles. These tangy little cookies baked up quite easily. However, I started lining my cookie sheets with parchment paper after the first batch in order to help remove the tuiles easier. Dorie must have a magic spatula or something to make these without parchment paper! The addition of a few tablespoons of orange juice really gave these tuiles a citrus-y kick which I liked. Definitely a keeper!

These almond orange tuiles were made for French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.

    Anytime you referred to tuiles, describing them as “easily” and “easier” and seemingly having no problems, I just have to think you were still drinking when you made these!!! Your tuiles are beautiful but all the rest of us, excluding Diane, had a heck of a time baking them. So, cudos to you. I do think and Kathy verified also, that parchment paper was a big helper. I wish I wasn’t so reticent about NOT following Dorie’s directions to the letter.

    I haven’t been to an office Christmas party in years. I love the look of these tuiles and the orange flavour must be lovely xx

    I just mixed mine up too and am going to attempt them tomorrow – parchment paper for the win!

    I like to make tuiles on a silpat, so easy to remove. They look amazing! I’m SO behind with recipes and the blog in general. These would make a great gift.

    Simply beautiful! Glad you got these done! They were so good! I agree, I don’t know how Dorie made these without something to line the pan…I lost two trays before I pulled out the parchment paper!

    After my first pan, i used parchment, too. Yours are simply beautiful. Wonderful lacey look.

    These look perfect, next time I am going for the parchment paper too. Mine
    were a disaster.

    When I saw the photo, I thought they were French fries. What do I know? Almond orange tuiles! The name alone gives me watery mouth.😛

    the words easy and tuiles are never adjacent in my kitchen. I must give them a try with baking paper. These look terrific.

    Yum! I’d like to have some now😀

    I think Dorie and I must have been baking these on the same (French) baking trays. Am sure if I made these on my regular (Canadian) trays I would have had trouble sans parchment. Yours look great!

    Lovely results you got there! I do think that the skins add character to the cookies!

    I’ve always wanted to make Tuiles, Yummy. Yours look so delicately delicious. Thanks for the tip about the parchment paper. I would definitely need it:) Thanks for sharing…

    These are so elegant looking. I agree with the comment on the skins adding character–kind of like the hand-distressed furniture you pay more for.

    I didn’t have much luck getting many of them off the pan, though the crumbs tasted good. Sounds like parchment paper is the secret.

    Those look delicious. I bet they were a hit.

    i’m not really familiar with this type of cookie and it’s so intriguing to me. It appears to be lacy and very pretty! I love the idea of the citrus. My guess is Dorie uses the parchment and was just fooling with you!🙂

    They look great! I tackled a similar recipe a little while ago and found that rather tricky but really enjoyed them too!

    Looking good! And I admire you for using what you had on hand (sliced) — I actually like the skins in these, but I do lean towards “rustic” in my baking. 🙂 Ya, I used my Silpat liner out of habit — would not want to even try w/o that or parchment.

    Good call on the parchment.
