TWD: Maple Almond Tuiles

Hindy of Bubie’s Little Baker chose Translucent Maple Tuiles, on page 173 of The Book. Check out her blog for the recipe.

I had never made tuiles before in my life but the recipe was really simple and straightforward and approachable with only 4 ingredients! I added a hint of almond extract and sprinkled the tuiles with some sliced almonds before baking. I think they turned out really festive and way better than I expected them to.

In other news, there is a new furry addition to our family. His name is Fluffy and he is an 8 week old dwarf bunny rabbit! He is so affectionate and adores sitting on my lap. Especially since I give him lots of veggie scraps from the kitchen. He runs around while I'm at home and he's already almost litter trained. I'm in love. bunny love :)





Lastly, congrats to Sara of Cupcake Muffin - winner of my digital scale/chicken soup for the soup cookbook/spreader giveaway! Thank you everyone for your comments and stories of the foods that give you the warm fuzzies.

I love the texture of your tuiles, very like a fortune cookie. I'm sure the almond flavour was wonderful.
Thanks so much for baking along with me! And congrats on the new fluffy family member.
