[Almond tuiles]
Almond tuiles
These delicious little biscuits ("tiles" in French) get their crunch and lightness from the use of flaked almonds rather than ground. It is not difficult to succeed, you just need to work fast after taking them out of the oven.

[Chestnut moelleux]
Chestnut moelleux
"Moelleux" means soft, and is also the name given to the gooey, soft-centred cakes that are popular in France. These muffin-style cakes are doubly chestnutty: there is chestnut purée in the mixture and pieces of marrons glacés (candied chestnuts) in the middle as well. The result is a little...

[Toasted-flour biscuits]
Toasted-flour biscuits
This is a surprising biscuit recipe, in which the flour is not added in its normal state, but gently toasted beforehand in the oven. This light dry-roasting changes the taste considerably, giving these biscuits notes of honey, coffee and even spices. Their distinctive flavour goes very well with...
