I did not make the tuiles, only the sherbet and it's very good. I'm surprised there is only 1/4 cup of cream in this. I got five 1/2 cup servings.
This was way too tart for me and my family. In addition, the heavy cream, while not a large amount, left a fatty film behind.
Alright, I cheated and didn't make the cups since that seems like an exorbant amount of effort for something that doesn't "keep" well. I think I would just buy cups at the store and dip in chocolate if I wanted to serve to guests. However, I did make the sherbet and it was fantastic! Admittedly, the base only filled up 1/2 of my ice cream maker so the recipe only really makes half a pint of sherbet. Otherwise, the tartness of this dish is fantastic and I plan on making fresh raspberry sauce (C.L.'s no bake version) topped with a smudge of whipped cream as a wonderful holiday treat on this sherbet. Would definitely make again - total time (minus the "hands off" chill time in the freezer & in the maker) was a whopping 10 minutes. Can't beat that for holiday sherbet cheer - enjoy!
