Crunchy Hazelnut Tuiles


Tuiles are thin cookies that are curved like tiles that line the rooftops of French country homes, particularly in Provence. To get a curved shape, tuiles are usually made on a curved surface, such as a wine bottle or rolling pin. This recipe for Crunchy Hazelnut Tulies are a sweet treat that pairs perfectly with a coffee or tea. Be sure to give yourself enough time to make them, because you need to refrigerate the dough for at least an hour.


  • 3 egg whites
  • 150 grams caster sugar
  • 40 grams melted butter
  • 40 grams flour
  • 120 grams hazelnuts (sliced, or almonds)


  1. 1In a bowl, use a fork to whisk the egg whites lightly with the sugar to a foam.

  7. 7Using 2 teaspoons, arrange piles of dough on the tray, spacing them well. Flatten with the back of a wet spoon.

  9. 9Bake for 4 to 6 minutes. Watch carefully, as the wafers brown very quickly.
  10. 10Upon removal from oven, lift the cookies with a spatula and place them on the rolling pin so that they take on the curved shape as they cool.
