    Light and crisp French tuiles are easy to make and a great use of leftover egg whites. They make a great garnish to a homemade mousse or sorbet, but are just as delicious alongside an afternoon cuppa.

    Serves: 4 

    • 120g icing sugar
    • 70g plain flour
    • 40g butter, melted
    • 2 egg whites

    1. Whisk together the flour and icing sugar. Whisk in the melted butter, then the egg whites. Let the mixture rest for 30 minutes in the fridge.
    2. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
    3. Pour a tablespoonful of the mixture onto the baking tray, and spread it into a circle with the back of a spoon. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden at the edges, about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven to cool for 1 minute. Create the concave shape by rolling each biscuit around a rolling pin before it is completely cool, then allow to cool completely.

    Other ideas

    You can dip one end in melted dark chocolate once the tuiles are cooled. Also, you can shape the biscuits into ovals rather than circles to make a biscuit called 'langue de chat' or cat tongue.
