  • Hi,I'm not sure to understand what is a shoe sole, sorry, and Google translate told me about real shoe only, I guess this not your aim?Would it be, possibly, a kind of flat pastry, made with puff pastry? If so, it could be this recipe : apple semelles (flat apple tarts)?Come back to me if I'm wrong.

  • Hi, I was trying to get your recipe for shoe soles. For some reason I can’t search it on your web page:(.

  • Unfortunately it's quite impossible, you can just reduce (a bit) the loss of crispy texture.

  • I have been baking a cinnamon/sugar recipe called "Elephant Ears' or "Shoe Soles". They are a pastry similar to a palmier. They come out nice and crispy after baking about 6 or 7 minutes at about 400 degree in a convection oven. How can I maintain that crispy texture overnight?
