Tuiles are classic, light French biscuits which you curl around the handle of a wooden spoon or rolling pin once baked to give them their unique shape.

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C, (fan 170°C, gas mark 5). Melt the butter and cool slightly.

    • 50g Butter (unsalted)
  2. Whisk the egg whites until stiff but not dry, then fold in the golden caster sugar, melted butter, flour and mixed spice.

    • 2 Egg white(s) (free range)
    • 110g Billington's Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
    • 50g Allinson Plain White Flour
    • 1 tsp Mixed spice
  3. Spoon onto baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper and spread each spoonful into a 10cm (4 in) circles. The mixture will be very thin.

  4. Bake in batches for 5-6 minutes until they have a golden tinge.

  5. Immediately remove from the tray, using a fish slice and wind the biscuits around the greased handles of wooden spoons or a rolling pin.

  6. When cooled slightly remove from the handles and place on a wire rack to cool.

  7. If the biscuits become hard during shaping return to the oven for a few seconds until softened.

    Looking good. I made them with apple pumpkin spice lovely flavour. So easy and quick to make. An excellent recipe for using up egg whites.
    Now to get some fruit from the freezer to have with them. Or roast some of our beautiful forced rhubarb from the garden.
