But what is an “Arlette”? Well, it’s a kind of finely crisped and caramelized tuile, made of puff pastry (here homemade) and powdered sugar and that’s it! The result is incredibly light and tasty and is a perfect accompaniment to ice creams and sorbets. Extremely simple to make, the “arlettes” are similar to the palms, but much thinner and more caramelized.  One of my favorite recipes for its simplicity and result.

Recipe for arlettes:

-Homemade puff pastry  (click on the name to go directly to the recipe). You can also use industrial quality puff pastry that is not rolled out.
-sugar ice
-and nothing else!!! 

The instructions

Lightly flour the work surface, but not too much. Place one piece of puff pastry in a square.
Roll out the dough thinly. If everything is not straight, it doesn’t matter! 


Roll it into a sausage. 


Then cut the dough into pieces. The bigger the pieces, the bigger the arlettes! 


Put a pile of powdered sugar on the work surface. 


Dab dough pieces in powdered sugar on both sides. 


Then roll thinly in powdered sugar. The dough will absorb the sugar that suits it! 


You can see the difference in size between the small pieces and the size of the arlette! If you want small arlettes, you have to cut the puff pastry more finely. 


Place the arlettes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can tighten them because the dough instead of spreading, will shrink. 


Put in the oven for 8 to 1 minute depending on the power of your oven! Watch for the first time and then apply the right time to the other plates! 


MUST be stored in an airtight box! Otherwise the arlettes will lose their crispy texture!
