Matcha Tuile

Matcha Tuile


  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon Matcha Imperial
  • 3 Tablespoons cooled melted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon cream
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

    1. . Preheat oven to 350
    2. . Whisk the whites until foamy then whisk in the confectioner sugar
    3. . Whisk in the remaining ingredients and blend to a smooth batter.
    4. . Set a sheet of parchment on a cookie sheet and draw 3 x 4” rounds. Since the cookies bake very fast you can only bake 3 at a time. Prepare two or more sheets so that as one pan comes out – another goes in
    5. . Butter the rounds
    6. . Drop a couple of teaspoons of batter onto each of the rounds and spread as thinly and as evenly* as possible - using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon
    7. . Bake for about 4- 5 minutes or until the edges of the cookies just start to brown
    8. . Remove from the oven – allow to rest for a few seconds
  • Notes:
    You can drape the cookie over the bottom of a glass – to make a mini ‘bowl’
    Drape over a rolling pin for the traditional ‘tuile’
    Shape into leaves or flowers. Be sure the batter is spread as smoothly as possible so it cooks evenly.
