Gluten Free Hazelnut Tuiles

As its Biscuit week on The Great British Bake Off tonight I thought I would have a go at a new biscuit.

Inspired by a Mary Berry recipe from a book from 1995 Mary Berry’s complete cook book ( my most used cookery book )

I set about making a gluten free version using hazelnuts to decorate.

put each one on a greased rolling pin

to cool, then put on a wire rack

They should resemble roof tile’s ‘tuile’

repeat until all mixture is used up.

store in an airtight container.

I think if these had been presented to Paul and Mary on the ‘gingham alter’ I think they would probably have said they needed another minute in the oven as they were slightly softer than intended . Still delicious though.

 

Enjoy watching Bake off!
