Actually, I found this on Epicurious so how bad can it be? Yeah, yeah Gourmet magazine blah blah blah. This tuile was actually a component in a napoleon of peeky-toe crab (?!) and apple.

Here it is:
For tuiles
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
1/2 cup rice flour
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/3 cup egg whites (from about 3 large eggs)
1/4 cup heavy cream

Make tuiles:
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small saucepan melt butter over moderate heat and cool slightly. In a bowl whisk together flours, sugar, salt, white pepper, and nutmeg and whisk in whites until just combined. Whisk in cream until just combined and whisk in butter until just combined. On a baking sheet spread 2 teaspoons batter in an arc shape. With a pastry brush spread batter into a 5-inch-long arc, about 1 1/2 inches wide. Make 3 more arcs with some of remaining batter in same manner, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Bake tuiles in middle of oven until bubbly, crisp, and golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Carefully transfer tuiles with a thin spatula to a rack to cool and make more tuiles in same manner. (There will be enough batter to make about 26 tuiles, more than you need for the napoleons; leftovers may be used as an hors d'oeuvre.)

9-5 ??????????????????????????
are you still a baker????????????...or a banker.

By Thebaker (Thebaker) on Tuesday, July 15, 2003 - 06:14 pm: Edit

Not a baker much anymore
when my last job fell apart (last october)
I was not excited by any of the pastry jobs i was being offered plus the pay was lousy

A Restaurant out on Long Island was looking for a Pantry cook for lunch, the chef was willing to train me if I was game,
The pay was great ( much more than any pastry job Ive ever had) it was hourly and paid overtime !!

I could not pass it up.

I do get to do pastry since I am responsible for the dessert menu for the restaurant but since i only have a few hours for the pastry production everything is very simple and basic..
