As mentioned in the previous post, I had 10 egg whites left after making Kueh Lapis. So I went online to search for recipes that calls for many egg whites and found many variation of this crispy almond flakes cookies. After looking through the ingredients required and the steps, I decided to use this recipe. I would like to apologize to the owner of this recipe. I forgot to note down your website. If this is your recipe, do drop me a note and I will acknowledge you here.
I made this straight after the Kueh Lapis, which is 13th February, a day before Valentine's Day, I decide to make it into heart shape and gave it to my hubby as Valentine's present, together with the card. The bouquet of roses that served as the backdrop of my Kueh Lapis is from him. Haha. He just gave me the bouquet and nothing else. Typical of him. Unromantic. Haha. Come to think of it, at least I got something from him, though I would prefer something more practical. : )
Crispy Almond Flakes Cookies (makes 15 pcs)
2 egg whites
60g castor sugar
50g plain flour
100g almond flakes
25g melted butter
1. Lightly beat the egg white and sugar till sugar dissolved.
2. Add in flour, almond flakes and melted butter. Mix well.
3. Spoon the mixture on a non-stick baking sheet, and use the bake of spoon to spread the mixture into a heart shape (make as thin as possible)
4. Bake at pre-heated oven for 13-15 minutes at 160oC or until golden brown.
Quite easily done. I think I over beat my egg white which made my batter very thick and hard to spread it out thinly. The cookie is not as crispy as I thought to be. A point to note. Anyway, the taste is good and I love the fragrance of the almond.
