I recently got a copy of the "Be-ro book of Home Recipes". Near the beginning is a recipe for 'brandy snaps'. This is a kind of cracker that is rolled after cooking to make tubes that are then filled with cream. However, my attempt to cook them failed and I want to know where I'm going wrong.
The first set was on parchment paper but not properly greased so they stuck to the paper.
The second set was greased but still tore when trying to lift off the paper. Also they have to be rolled when hot but they are far to hot to touch until they cool but then they are too stiff to roll.
The third set again just tore and couldn't be rolled.
On the plus side, the did taste nice but how can I stop them looking like something the dog should be eating.
