Blackberry Creme Tuiles - Yum!
I'm back in business.
For those of you that did not know, I've been a Daring Baker for some time. I wasn't able to complete a few challenges towards the end of 2008, but I requested my re-admittance from the almighty Lis, and my wish was granted!
This month's challenge is brought to us by Karen aka Baking Soda at Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf. They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angelique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux. Both of the above sites will have the FULL RECIPE fore viewing and copying.
I was very excited when I saw some of the early posts from fellow DBers. The pictures reminded me of this cookie that "a lady" use to make for me for the holidays. The cookies reminded me of a 'watery sugar cookier' because it was so
thin and sugary. Sadly, this was not the cookie I had hoped... but don't fret... I was very happy with the outcome indeed.
I decided to fill my tuiles with whipped cream topped with fresh (previously frozen) blackberries. I loved them... and so did my husband. (we figured the kids wouldn't like them... so we didn't share!)
