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 .

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.
