Ffwd: Almond-Orange Tuiles
My love for the old standards of Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter have made me ignorant. The world is full of fabulous cookie recipes. Named after the curved roof tiles of Provence, this simple, pretty and delicate option is a delicious addition to any holiday cookie plate. Thank you Dorie for opening my world!
- 1 Package Sugar Cookie Mix
- 1/3 cup butter
- 3 1/2 tbsp orange juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/8 cup Orange Vanilla Sugar
- 1 cup Almond Flour
- 1/8 cup Brown Rice Flour
- 1/4 cup Earth Balance (soy butter)
- 3 1/2 tbsp orange juice
Combine flours and sugars. Fold in orange juice and melted butter. Cover dough with plastic wrap and chill overnight. When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 325f. Scoop out dough by the teaspoon and roll into balls. Arrange on parchment-lined cookie sheets, leaving 2" inches between each ball.
Bake 1 sheet at a time for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating the sheet 1/2 way through the baking period. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a minute. Using a spatula, transfer the delicate cookie to a wine bottle or rolling pin. Allow to sit until cooled. This step gives the cookie their curved shape, making them a perfect companion to coffee icecream or chocolate mousse.
My cookies were a little thicker than ideal. As a result, this recipe calls for less flour.

How were you smart enough to use parchment paper? Those of you who did got a much better result than those of us who followed Dorie's directions and just went cold turkey on the cookie sheets. Removing my tuiles from the cookie sheet was not easy. Congratulations for a job well done.

Love that you made a gluten-free version of these. They're beautiful! I finally caught up on them, myself.
