Per tuile

Ingredients

  • 1 large free-range egg white
  • 55g caster sugar
  • ?25g plain flour
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 25g melted and cooled butter
  • flaked almonds, for sprinkling

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan170°C/gas 5 and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Put the egg white in a bowl with the caster sugar and beat with a fork until frothy.
  3. Sift in the plain flour and stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Stir through 25g melted and cooled butter, then stir well until smooth.
  5. Drop teaspoons of the mixture onto the baking paper at least 10cm apart and smooth into very thin circles (about 8cm diameter) with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle each with a few flaked almonds.
  6. Bake for around 6 minutes until pale golden. Take out of the oven and cool for a second, then lift gently with a palette knife and lay over a rolling pin to form a curved shape. When firm, cool on a wire rack.
