Paris seems that much further away these days. In between dreaming about your next European escape, turn your home into a French bakery by making some delectable Almond Tuiles.

For those who’ve never had these crisps (you poor souls), they’re bite sized vanilla waffle crisps with a liberal sprinkle of crunchy almonds. Almond Tuiles are incredibly versatile — bite into a crisp with an afternoon cuppa in the sun or pair them with ice cream, sorbet or even a slice of cake.

As far as home cafe recipes go, cook kafemaru’s is as easy as they come. Aside from sliced almonds, you’re bound to have everything in your pantry already. Mix all the ingredients together, pop them in the oven and then shape them into circles, hearts or waffle bowls as they cool down.

Once baked, enjoy these gems immediately for that extra crunchiness. In the unlikely event that you have some left over, remember to store them in an airtight container as they will soften over time.
