The Parmesan Tuile can be made early in the day or even the day before just store in air tight container after they have cooled.
A Tuile is a thin, crisp, sweet or savory wafer made of dough or cheese. Originally from France, 'Tuile' means tile in French. Tuiles can be shaped if desired (i.e. little bowls, little scoops etc.) Tuiles must be curved while they are hot, otherwise they will crack and break. Tuiles can also be left flat after baking.
Boursin Cheese [buʁsɛ̃] is a trademarked brand of Gournay cheese. It is a soft creamy cheese available in a variety of flavours, with a flavour and texture somewhat similar to cream cheese
