French Almond Wafers (Tuiles)

French Almond Wafers (Tuiles)

These almond-flavored wafer cookies are often served in elegant restaurants in Europe. The traditional name of this cookie is the French word for "tiles" because they are shaped like the curved terracotta roof tiles so prevalent along the Mediterranean.

1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/4 cup sliced almonds, finely chopped


Beat egg whites in bowl at medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, almond flavoring and salt until smooth. Gradually beat in flour until smooth. Continue beating, adding 1 tablespoon butter at a time, until batter is smooth and well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 20 minutes.

Heat oven to 350°F.

Drop batter by teaspoonfuls at least 3 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets. Spread batter, using spatula and working in a circular motion, into 1 1/2-inch circles; sprinkle immediately with almonds. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Remove cookies from oven. Immediately press cookies over rolling pin or 12-ounce beverage can to form curved shape. Let cookies set until well formed and cooled slightly. Cool completely.
