    Spread the mixture out carefully over the circle with a palette knife, while holding the circle still with your other hand.

    The thickness of the finished tuile depends on the amount of mixture: the more you use, the thicker your tuile will be.

    Unstick 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.

Remarks:

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.
