Day 9 – Christmas Tuiles

Day 9 and today is a posh desert – Lemon Posset with Christmas Tuiles!


2 egg whites, large

120g caster sugar

60g plain flour

55g butter, melted and cooled

To decorate – 25g dark chocolate melted and mini pearl or silver dragees

Plus – one batch of Lemon Posset – recipe here

To start off with we’ll mix up the Tuile batter – it needs to sit for half an hour, then we’ll get the rest of the equipment ready.

Place the egg whites into a bowl and break them up with a fork until they go bubbly.

Add the caster sugar and whisk them together.

Now add the melted cooled butter and the flour and….you got it… mix it up again, making sure you work out any lumps!

Cover it with clingfilm and let it stand for half an hour.

Preheat the oven to 160c (fan)/180c/Gas Mark 4.

So we’ll need a template for creating the tuiles – you can print off my holly and christmas tree shapes here or make up your own design.

For each template you’ll need an old ice cream tub lid.

Cut off the rim so that it will sit flat.

Mark out the design for your tuile on the lid and cut it out of the centre.

Now line two baking trays with baking paper.  Cut each piece of lining paper into quarters.

Right, on with the Tuile making!

Take one piece of the lining paper and set the template on the top.

Taking a small amount of Tuile batter on a palette knife, spread it over the template.  The batter should be thin and even.  It’s a bit tricky to begin with but the batter will make you lots and you’ll get better and better with each one.  You will need to hold the template down flat to the paper as you work.  Working at the edge of your worksurface is easiest that way your hand holding the palette knife is over the open space and free to move, rather than being constricted by the work top.

Carefully peel away the template which should leave you with a shaped tuile ready to bake.  Don’t worry if the batter has leaked a little under the template – like I said your Tuiles will get better and better.

Set them back onto the baking tray and when you have four lined up on the tray they need to go into the oven to bake.  Carefully into the oven – move those trays too fast and a little flutter of air can disrupt the lose light pieces of baking paper.  Keep your eye on them as they do bake quickly – roughly 3-4 minutes for the holly and christmas tree shapes here,  they should be golden brown around the edges.

Remove the tray from the oven, if you want to shape them then now’s the time.  Lift one Tuile still on the baking paper from the tray at a time and gently shape around a rolling pin, holding in position for a short 30 seconds until they harden up.

The heat from the tray will keep the others warm and pliable whilst you work.  If they’ve hardened before you get to them pop them back in the oven for 30 seconds and they’ll soften up again for you.

Place the hardened Tuiles on a wire rack to cool completely and then release them carefully from their baking paper.

Tuiles will quickly absorb moisture and soften so store them in an airtight container between sheets of baking paper for upto 3 days until you’re ready to use them.

I’m drizzling mine with a little bit of chocolate and some mini pearl dragees.

Perfect for topping Lemon Posset for a posh Christmas desert

    Always wanted to know how to make lemon posset, thank you

  268. Angela Cairns says:

    Very clever! And I could do with some books to cheer me up, not such a good week 🙁

  269. Fiona says:

    The tuiles do look amazing, but it has to be gingerbread at Christmas!

  270. Jenny Parsons says:

    If these turn out anything like my first attempt at brandy snaps there could be lots of ‘misshapes’ for me to munch on while perfecting them!

  271. Ali Thorpe says:

  272. claire says:

  279. Jen Webster says:

    Very pretty but my patience at this time of year is a little thin to embark on these. I can see me doing bunnies/Easter egg shapes in the Spring! xxx

  280. Jen Turner says:

    If i ever had the time i’d try them

  281. Elaine Tickell says:

    Perfect reading as a contrast to the Xmas hurly- burly.

    Might have to give it a try though.

  286. Jo Kelly says:

    Looks fantastic! Very intricate x

  287. Lizzy S says:

    Wow, a really great idea. I never thought to use a plastic lid as a template before. Can be used for other shapes too.
    Will definately give them a go 🙂

  288. Kathy Akroyd says:

    Hmm, look a bit fiddley these, but I’m sure they’re worth the effort to make a special dessert extra special. Perhaps a nice idea for my friends’ 40th dinner party in the New Year, she loves lemony things too!

  289. Tania says:

    Wow! Sophisticated and scrumptious!

  290. They look absolutely lush!

  291. Holly Green says:

  297. Glynis Rowntree says:

    What a lovely combination. A definite for my Christmas guests.

  298. Sharon Carleton says:

    you make it look so easy – wonder could I manage them ?

  299. Loops says:

    So impressive! Any tips on getting the chocolate drizzling? Whenever I try my chocolate always seems to set so quickly I can’t make the lovely thin drizzles…it looks more like a hail of chocolate!

    • Heat it up till it’s nice and runny, then add it to a disposable piping bag or a sandwich bag and then snip off the tiniest amount at the corner so it’s forced to come through a tiny hole! Holding your hand well above whatever it is your drizzling and then move in a fairly rapid flicking motion – hope that helps! x

  300. Donna Allgrove says:

    They look great will have to give they a go. Thanks

  301. Nicola says:

    Oh please pick me to win the hamper – I don’t have a single piece of pyrex yet!!

  307. Elaine Davies says:

    These look gorgeous Ruth.

  308. Claudine Kelly says:

    I’ve tried making tuiles before but they never turned out right. I’ll definitely give your recipe a go. Made 3 Pink Whisk projects at the weekend (florentines, gingerbread sleigh and cookies in a jar) and all 3 came out really well. Very happy! Thanks Ruth for all the recipes and creative ideas!

  346. mel h says:

    Perfect for my Mother in law who loves Lemon desserts!

  347. Joanne says:

    Impressive, I dont think it looks like too much ‘faff’ afterall as you say you can keep them for up to 3 days if you store them right. I think this will be a job for the 23rd, although it is my wedding anniversary on that day, what do you think the husband would say to ‘not tonight dear i am making tuiles for my posset!’ ha

  348. Cenders says:


  349. Sally Campbell says:
