Fortune cookies are often made with a very thin batter, but these are made with a tasty vanilla tuile paste. We thought we'd use it because the flavor is very delicate and they are buttery and crisp.
Use your computer printer to make your "love notes" or write them out by hand - we have included a template, as well as one for the cookie shape.
Traditionally, tuiles (pronounced “tool-ee”) are thin, crisp almond cookies that are gently molded over a rolling pin or into an arched form while they are still warm. Once set, their shape resembles the curved French roofing tiles for which they're named. Here, I created a Valentine's variation on the classic French tuile cookie by shaping them with a stencil, and while still warm, placing them in a bowl to retain a gently curved shape, to be later filled. We also also use this recipe with the Loving Cups Tutorial.
