Elderberry flower sorbet with an oatmeal tuile and raspberry coulis

This sorbet is a twist on a Swedish drink called “flädersaft”. The oatmeal tuile is easy to make and delicious to every type of ice cream. You can also make bowls with these cookies if you shape them over a glass while they are still hot.
