Pink Heart Tuiles


The batter for these delicate yet crisp cookies may be made and kept refrigerated for two days. To make a template for these cookies, cut a three-inch heart-shaped hole in the center of a piece of heavy plastic, such as a coffee-can lid. Trace a heart cookie cutter for the shape, if you like. Spread the batter thinly over the template; if the batter is too thick, the tuiles may bubble.



  1. In two separate bowls, sift flour and confectioners' sugar. Set aside.
  2. In bowl of electric mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter and sifted confectioners' sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Beat in egg whites, one at a time, until fully incorporated. Add sifted flour; mix well. Add vanilla extract. Stir in food coloring, drop by drop, until desired shade is reached.
  4. Heat oven to 375 degrees F with two racks.
  5. Place two Silpat sheets (French nonstick baking mats) on two baking sheets. Place template on corner of mat. With offset spatula, spread thin layer of batter over template, and lift template. Repeat to make eight hearts, spaced equally, on each mat.
  6. Bake cookies until cooked through but not brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
  7. Using a spatula, drape cookies over handle of a wooden spoon to curl slightly; let cool. If cookies cool before shaping, return pan to oven for 30 seconds.
  8. Bake remaining batter, making sure baking sheets are cool before spreading batter.
  9. Store in an airtight container, at room temperature, up to 1 week.

Yield: 4 dozen
