Sesame Tuile

Sesame Tuile
Sesame tuile used to garnish a Peppermint Crisp set dessert

An interesting twist on the classic French tuile, this sesame seed tuile biscuit can add a delicious crunch component to elevate your desserts.

It has a sweet, nutty flavour which can complement a range of dessert flavours.


  • 50g (1 3/4 oz) water
  • 12g (1/2 oz) liquid glucose
  • 60g (2 oz) butter
  • 125g (4 oz) icing sugar
  • 35g (1 oz) flour
  • 60g (2 oz) ground almonds
  • 60g (2 oz) sesame seeds


  • Mix the icing sugar, flour, ground almonds and sesame seeds together.
  • Put the water, liquid glucose and butter into a small pot and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, pour over the dry ingredients and mix until completely combined.
  • Leave to cool, before moulding, baking and shaping.

Tuile paste will keep in the fridge for a week or so, and this recipe will make a substantial amount of tuiles. Feel free to halve it.

I plated this with a Peppermint Crisp Tart.
