I found this recipe in an old Wilton catalog. They used chocolate numbers which I thought were adorable but I couldn’t find the right mold. I tried making chocolate numbers on wax paper like my Fireworks topping. It didn’t work. That’s when I decided to get creative with icing. Here’s the Wilton Tuiles.
|Prep time||10 minutes|
|Cook time||1 hour|
|Total time||1 hour, 10 minutes|
|Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with vegetable spray. In a large bowl combine the egg whites, sugar and flour until well blended.|
|Mix in the melted butter, vanilla, and salt.|
|Place two tablespoons of dough on the cookie sheet about 6 inches apart. Place in the oven and watch closely. They will bake in 4-7 minutes.|
As soon as I saw the cookie edges turning brown I removed them from the oven. Use a spatula to lift the cookie from the sheet onto a plate then roll it into a scroll with the edge of the spatula. Work quickly while the cookie is warm. I scraped and sprayed the cookie sheet after each batch of two cookies was made.
Follow the directions on the box of filling and add the pudding mix. Beat until stiff peaks form.
Fill each cookie with icing.
Decorate the cookies with your school colors.

Lina is just like any other fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941. She paints, she draws, she gets crushes on boys. Until one night when Soviet officers barge into her home, tearing her family from the comfortable life they've known. Separated from her father, forced onto a crowded and dirty train car, Lina, her mother, and her young brother slowly make their way north, crossing the Arctic Circle, to a work camp in the coldest reaches of Siberia. Here they are forced, under Stalin's orders, to dig for beets and fight for their lives under the cruelest of conditions.
Lina finds solace in her art, meticulously--and at great risk--documenting events by drawing, hoping these messages will make their way to her father's prison camp to let him know they are still alive. It is a long and harrowing journey, spanning years and covering 6,500 miles, but it is through incredible strength, love, and hope that Lina ultimately survives. Between Shades of Gray is a novel that will steal your breath and capture your heart.
