Fancy Cookie: Chocolate-Cinnamon Tuilles

So, after the chocolate-cinnamon heart cookies I made a few weeks ago, I've had a serious hankering for more chocolate-cinnamon yummines.
Finally I got my fix--these Chocolate Cinnamon Tuille Cookies are everything a fun new cookie should be--delicious and beautifully unique. LOVE 'EM!

I mean, how fun is it to have pretty shaped cookies like this?

Especially fun because I served them for our Valentine's Tea. :) They were a great little tea cookie.

Admittedly, they were a little tricky to get the timing just right at first, but I soon had the bugs worked out and they were quick and easy to make. And now you have some step-by-step photos (above) and directions so it should work pretty smooth for you. :)

Here's the recipe.

Chocolate-Cinnamon Tuilles
Recipe originally from Cookies by Hilaire Walden
1 egg white
¼ sugar, preferably superfine but regular will do
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
½ tsp. ground cinnamon

1.    Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly grease two large baking sheets.
2.    Beat the egg white until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in the sugar to make a smooth, glossy mixture.
3.    Sift the flour over the mixture and fold in evenly. Stir in the butter. Transfer about 3 Tbsp. of the mixture to a small bowl and set aside; this will be used to make the marbling effect.
4.    In a small bowl, mix together the cocoa and cinnamon. Stir into the egg white mixture.
5.    Drop 4-6 spoonfuls of the chocolate-flavored mixture onto the prepared baking sheets, then spread each gently with a spatula to make a neat, even round.
6.    Using a small spoon, draggle the reserved plain mixture over the rounds and then spread slightly with a spoon to give the marbled effect.
7.    Bake for 4-5 minutes, until just set. Use a spatula to remove them from the baking sheet, one-at-a-time. Quickly drape each over a rolling pin to cool, giving each cookie a curved shape as it hardens.

Note: If the cookies cool too much before you are able to drape them over the rolling pin, just pop them back in the oven for a minute. This will soften them back up. Do not put them in the microwave. This will ruin the cookie. J

Also, I use a kid-sized rolling pin to give a more pronounced curve to the cookies.
