Coconut tuiles


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

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.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in a closed metal box.
