Thanks to Hindy of Bubie's Little Baker for her Tuesdays with Dorie pick of Translucent Maple Tuiles, found on page 173 of Dorie Greenspan's Baking from My Home to Yours cookbook. You can also find the recipe on Hindy's site here. I almost chose this recipe when it was my turn to choose, so I was excited to finally see it arrive on the pick list.
The recipe is very easy with only four ingredients: Butter, Brown Sugar, Maple Syrup, and Flour. Mix it all up, park in the frig for several hours, and roll into tiny balls before baking in a hot oven.
They turn out lacey and crispy (my favorite kind of cookie, nice and crispy). If you want them to have a bit of a curve to them, you can drape them over a rolling pin when they are warm to shape while they cool.
These were just served plain (for me) and with coffee (for Mark). If I had some fresh berries, I might have put a little whipped cream and a berry or two on each one to fancy them up a bit. That said, they were just delicious straight up with nothing else whatsoever. Definitely a repeat sometime soon.
Next week: Amber from Cobbler du Monde has chosen Apple-Coconut Family Cake, found on page 214. TWD blogroll found here.
