Almond Tuiles Cookie Recipe

These thin crispy cookies look like the roof tiles that they are named after. To make the curved shape, cookies fresh from the oven are placed over a rolling pin and allowed to harden. The batter can be spread into a round shape directly on the cookie sheet, but I found using a round pan (from my son’s Easy Bake Oven) gave these treats a beautiful shape.

This recipe is adapted from The New French Baker by Sheila Linderman.

Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: 7-10 minutes

French pastries, almond tuiles


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup sliced blanched almonds
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Secure a rolling pin on the table by placing it on a dish towel and bunching up the edges around the rolling pin.
  3. Combine the sugar, almonds and flour in a small bowl. Stir in the egg whites with a wooden spoon. Add the butter and vanilla and stir well.
  4. The original recipe suggested using 1 heaping tablespoon of dough and place it directly on a greased cookie sheet. The dough is then flattened, keeping the round shape, using the bottom of a fork dipped in water. My cookies refused to form a round shape so I used a small round pan to make the cookies.
  5. Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. Using a spatula, lift each wafer off the hot pan and lay it on top of the rolling pin. Once cooled and crisp, transfer to a serving platter or airtight container.

Since I had leftover melted chocolate from when I made my dark chocolate florentines, I drizzled some on a flattened almond tuile cookie. To die for!
