This recipe has only four little ingredients - butter, brown sugar, maple syrup (I subbed honey), and flour. Simple means easy right? Wrong for me last night. So wrong.
I started by quartering the recipe. Math is not my forte and I was too lazy to use a calcular to find one-fourth of 1/3 cup + 1 Tb flour. So I guestimated and had really sticky dough. I added more flour and baked. I ended up with tiny round, cute little cookies that didn't look anything like Tuilles.
So I tried again, this time with less flour. You know what happened? They spread...and just for a second...looked like tuilles. Yes, I was watching through the glass door of the toaster oven. Then, before I could reach in, they burnt. I scraped off what I could and dumped it on a plate. Sad little hard ball.
Then I decided to go to bed, and try to conquer Tuilles another day. For the real thing, check out Hindy's blog Bubie's Little Baker.
