Created for the Daring Bakers January Challenge
This month's challenge is brought to us by Karen of Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte aka Kochtopf. They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux.
Three years and a half years ago, when I gave up hydrogenated oils and ingredient lists that required a chemistry degree, I knew that there would be a few things I would miss. There aren’t many things mind you. It’s incredible but almost everything tastes better when it is made from real ingredients. This having been said, there are still a few things that I pine away for.
Those little pirouette cookies from Pepperidge Farm rank high on that list.
I am a die hard, crisp and buttery cookie fan. Until I tried this recipe, given the choice to eat only one cookie for the rest of my life, I would have said short bread. This recipe has shaken my devotion.
It has the lovely subtle butteriness of shortbread but with a thin crisp edge that sings a siren song to the caramel lover in me.
