About this recipe: Festive brandy snaps. These little delicate biscuits are flavoured with brandy and shaped into tuiles hot out of the oven.
Greaseproof paper will NOT work, the molten sugar will soak into it and it will tear. Baking parchment has silicone on it and works a treat. Alternatively you can use a lightly oiled silicone baking tray.
came out really well and tastes really good but i made the mistake of cooking them to close together, you really do need a lot of room between them. - 29 Dec 2015
these didn't work for me- they spread too much and were far too sticky to properly. Shape- they didn't crisp up. I'm a very novice cook though so it could be my failure not the recipe. - 17 Dec 2012
They worked fine for me, although definitely make in two batches - if you make it in one then the mixture you use later stays on the heat too long and doesn't cook properly afterwards. I tried substituting kirsch for the brandy, which worked wonderfully and gave the snaps a subtle cherry flavour. Too fiddly to make for an everyday snack, but great for parties. - 05 Oct 2014
