Almond Crispy Crisps

Finally came to this recipe which is adapted to Anncoo's Hobby almond cookies recipe. I really wanted to thank her for this. There were lots of leftover egg whites after making the pineapple biscuits the other day and this recipe just perfect for clearing up all the egg whites for me.

Ingredients :

90gm all purpose flour
100gm sugar
60gm butter, melted
2 egg whites (roughly about 70gm), lightly beaten
1/4 tspn almond essence ( I used vanilla essence)
some almond flakes

Method :

- combine flour, melted butter and beaten egg white together and mix well.
- keep the mixture cover and leave to rest for an hour.
- finally, drop a spoon of batter onto baking tray and spread mixture to a round 5-6cm diameter.
*


- sprinkle each with almond flakes.
- then bake at 170'c for about 10 mins or untill slightly golden brown.
- leave to cool for about 5 mins before lifting.

This is such fabulous goodies. It's crunchy and it's smell terrific too! I just can't stop chewing on them. Actually, this sounds like some kind of the Chinese version meringue! So, what do you think?

Calling them a Chinese meringue works for me - they do look light and luscious. I'd walk a mile for anything with almonds.

Wow! My favorite cookies! Wish I had been there to try them! yummy. Guess I will just have to make them.
Don't know if they are a version of Chinese meringue, but they do look like French tuilles.

Kristy, I am trying your Almond Crispy Crisps and wondering if I can make them ahead of time - like just a few days ahead, or do you have to serve them right away. I am making them for 15 people. Thanks Shann Anderson

My Little Space said...

Hi Shann,
Sorry for the late reply, I was away !
You may prepare them a few days earlier or a week before and keep them in air tight jars. The crispiness still stays as good.

Good luck & have a great week ahead!
Blessings, Kristy
