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.
