Coconut tuiles

Coconut tuiles

Delicate tuiles with coconut. Very thin, they are both crunchy and melt-in-the-mouth.

Delicious on their own or to accompany an ice-cream or cream dessert, perhaps a sophisticated one like coconut-vanilla cream for Elsa .

3 Coconut tuiles : Photo of step #3Add the powdered coconut and mix again. 2 min.
4 Coconut tuiles : Photo of step #4Finish by adding 1 egg white and mix well.

The mixture is ready. Put in the refrigerator to wait.

Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F).

6 Coconut tuiles : Photo of step #6Place a sheet of slicone or cooking parchment on a baking sheet.

Place the circle on this sheet and pour 1 teaspoonful of mixture in the centre.
3 min.

12 Coconut tuiles : Photo of step #12Unstick the tuiles from the sheet while still hot, and place to cool on a rack.

If you'd like to give them the true tuile shape, leave them to cool pressed over something cylindrical, like a glass or a bottle laid on its side.
10 min.


The tuiles must be kept in an airtight tin, otherwise they will go soft rapidly. Unfortunately they only keep well for a day or two.
