You can finish these cookies in three different ways: Leave them plain and they are delicate and delicious; curve them on a rolling pin or other round form, like a classic French tuile; or sandwich strained reduced apricot or raspberry preserves between them. The word tuile, by the way, means “tile” in French, and refers to a curved clay roofing tile, commonly used in southern Europe.
Keep the cookies between sheets of wax paper in a tin or plastic container with a tight-fitting lid.
