Ice Cream Hearts with Arrow Tuiles

Acknowledge Cupid's work with ice cream hearts in which his arrow has made its mark. Soften strawberry ice cream in a mixer on low, spread onto a rimmed baking sheet, and refreeze. Bake arrow-shaped tuiles (See recipe and ingredients below). Just before serving, cut ice cream with a cookie cutter and place arrow. To make the arrow stencil, print an arrow symbol from a computer; enlarge, if necessary, and trace it onto thin foam board, or draw it by hand. Using a straightedge to guide the blade of a utility knife, cut out the shape and remove the inside of the stencil. � 

  • yield: Makes about 3 dozen

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees with rack in center. Using a mixer, beat egg whites and superfine sugar on medium just until combined and frothy, about 30 seconds.

  2. Step 2

    Beat in flour and salt. Beat in butter, cream, and vanilla. Place stencil on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat (French nonstick baking mat). Spoon 1 1/2 teaspoons batter inside stencil, spread batter over stencil with an offset spatula, and carefully remove stencil. Repeat, placing at least 2 inches apart.

  3. Step 3

    Bake just until golden around edges, 4 to 5 minutes. Working quickly, use an offset spatula to transfer tuiles to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining batter.

  4. Step 4

    Dust with confectioners' sugar.

    I would imagine a flat graham cracker crust would be awesome underneath these, too, if you didn't want to bake the tuiles.

    How long in advance can you bake the arrows?
