This month’s challenge is brought to us by Karen of Bake My Day and Zorra of 1x umruehren bitte. They have chosen Tuiles from The Chocolate Book by Angélique Schmeink and Nougatine and Chocolate Tuiles from Michel Roux.
I don't know whether the cold weather made me feel lazy this month, or my tight budget made me feel less than willing to experiment, (i.e., potentially waste ingredients) in veganizing the challenge recipe, but I chose to use an "already vegan" recipe for tuiles. Fantastic veganlisa directed some of us to a recipe for lemon tuiles from the Millenium Cookbook. Here they are, shaped like little sorbet rafts, filled with coconut sorbet and drizzled with cherry jam:
I wasn't really wowwed by these -- they were good, just not spectacular. Dan, however, is in love with their lemony, crunchy goodness! I guess I'll make them again sometime?? :)
