Tulipe Cookies

Tulipe cookies are perfect for garnishing any dessert. It is seen here in a curlycue, garnishing a Mango Bavarian. The recipe calls for equal parts, by weight, of four ingredients:

melted butter or margarine
egg whites
bread flour
confectioner's sugar

Mix wet ingredients and dry ingredients and then mix together, don't overmix. Then, pipe onto a baking sheet in the shape you want and bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Quickly shape the cookie right when it comes out of the oven!
