If Using Foil Slide the foil sheet of cookies onto a rack to cool ﬂat. Or, for curved tuiles, grasp the edges of the foil when the sheet comes from the oven (without touching the hot pan or the cookies) and roll it into a fat cylinder, gently curving the attached cookies like potato chips. Crimp or secure the foil with a paper clip. When cool, unroll the foil carefully and remove the tuiles. Alternatively, remove individual tuiles from the foil while they are hot (as soon as you can coax a thin metal spatula under a cookie without destroying it) and shape them as described above.
It makes sense. Thin cookies have loads of surface area. They brown easily, so the ﬂavors of caramelized sugar, browned butter, toasted ﬂour, nuts, and seeds permeate the entire cookie. Ingredients such as coconut (or hazelnuts in Hazelnut Sticks, page 34) that often require pretoasting to bring out their ﬂavor actually toast while the cookies are baking, so it is not necessary to toast them separately. Sesame seeds proved an exception (see Sesame Sticks, page 30): lightly toasting them beforehand improves the cookie enough to make it worth the quick extra step.
It will continue to soften as you work. Roll the dough between two sheets of wax paper or plastic sheets from a cut-apart resealable plastic bag to a thickness of V inch. Turn the dough over once or twice while you are rolling it out to check for deep wrinkles; if necessary, peel off and smooth the paper over the dough before continuing to roll it. When the dough is thin enough, slide it (still between the sheets) onto a cookie sheet and refrigerate. Repeat with the remaining patties, sliding each rolled-out piece on top of the others in the fridge.
