Pistachio tuiles: Thin, delicious and very nutty cookies!

Thin and crispy, tuile cookie is one of the easiest cookie that you can make at home. But the other thing that you need is a lot of time, because you have to bake the cookie in batch and if you want to create some effect on the cookie you can do it only when the cookie is hot from the oven.

There are many recipe for this kind of cookie, but I want to try this recipe because it contains a Pistachio paste in the batter too, and I imagine that this cookie must be delicious. 
And the other reason is I want to use it as a decoration for my cake (will post it later, hehe, it's the project for the Chicken farm ^^, that's I'm the host).
Because I want my cookies to have the same size, I cut them while they are still hot from the oven. You can say it's a lot of work but when looking at the uniform size of the cookie, I think it's worth.
This recipe can be halved easily if you want to, but it's delicious enough to bake a full batch of it too. 
If you want your tuiles to be crispy just wait until they are cool and bake them again in a 150°C for 4-5 minutes (or less, the time that you need will depend on the size of your cookies). I can't say that this cookie is better than a potato chips, haha but for me it's great to have them around, with a cup of coffee or tea, it's a delicious treat that no one deny.
