Orange Black Sesame Tuilles
- 1/2 pound confectioners sugar
- 1/4 pound butter
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup chopped almonds
- Zest of 1 orange and juice, reserved
- Black sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon Cointreau
- SMOOTHIE MARTINI
- 2 bananas
- 1 pint strawberries
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
- Whipped cream for garnish
- Martini glasses
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream sugar and butter together in a mixer. Gradually add flour and continue to mix for 2 to 3 minutes until thoroughly combined. Add remaining ingredients and mix just until blended.
Apply an even coating of nonstick spray to a sheet pan to prevent sticking. Drop mixture by tablespoons onto the sheet tray. Dip your fingers into cold water and pat down gently into a very thin layer.
Bake until lightly brown around edges and crisp for approximately 5 to 8 minutes. Remove with a spatula, take caution, these will be very hot! If you want, you can curve
cookies by laying them over a bottle until they set up (it only takes a few seconds).
In a blender combine sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, yogurt and juices. Pour into martini glasses and top with whipped cream and Orange Sesame-Seed Tuilles for garnish.
