Coconut tuile sounds so fancy and difficult, but after making them I will have to say that these are the easiest cookies ever! In fact, if you need to appear fancy pants for some parties, just make some coconut tuiles.
I got the recipe from Simple Recipes. Yeah, I wouldn't be a fan girl if I didn't use Elise's recipe now, would I?
Like any good baker, you should preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. I wasn't a good baker and totally forgot to preheat the oven...every time.
Step 1: Beat 1/2 stick of butter until it's all creamy.
Step 2: Add in 1/2 cup of sugar and beat some more. Then pour in 2 egg whites and beat until smooth and shiny.
Step 3: Stir in 3 tablespoons of flour, then 2 cups of sweetened shredded coconut.
Step 4: Use a small spoon and scoop out the batter out on a baking sheet or on sheet of parchment paper. Sprinkle on some more shredded coconuts.
Bake in your nicely preheated oven for 9 minutes. Take the cookies out when they're all brown and still soft. The correct method is to place the warm cookies on a rolling pin so that they're all nice and curved until completely cooled. I didn't follow the correct method because I was too lazy, so I ate them while warm.
They're crazily addicting. Can't eat just one. Here's a crazy story to go with your cookies. When I was making them the first time around, I went to do the dishes and cleaned up while they baked. They were still kinda white when the time was up so I said to myself "I'll just leave them in for one more minute." One minute turned into five when I got too carry away with the dishes and all of cookies were burnt! Ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.
You can find the original recipe here. Below is the list of ingredients since I know you already memorized the steps from above.
1/2 stick of butter - soften
1/2 cups of sugar
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons of flour
2 cups of sweetened shredded coconut
about 1 cup of extra coconut for sprinkling.
