Daring Tuiles.....

This month's challenge is brought to us by Karen of Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf. They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux.

Making tuiles was a fun challenge and I would make this recipe again! The batter was easy to put together and used ingredients most homes have on hand. The only thing I purchased was the black sesame seeds, but you could use something else and not have to buy anything. I used the savory recipe from Thomas Keller "the French Laundry Cookbook". We were to use fruits in some way with our tuiles, so I used avocados, they are considered a fruit. I made my tuiles into mini taco shells and filled them with gucamole; very yummy!!! I used a large hanger to shape my tuiles and OMG they were very HOT! All in all a very diverse recipe that you can use for any occasion.

Now weren't YOU clever! Using a coat hanger for shaping! That never crossed my mind, but it sure worked out well for your taco-shaped tuilles. They turned out great and look yummy.

Your tuiles look great! I did taco shells the second time I made them but did mine around a thin box. I like the hanger idea.
