RECIPE FOR ALMOND CRISPS

Source: Adapted and modified from Agnes Chan’s Baking Make Easy (蓝赛珍,轻轻松松学烘焙)

Make: 26-28 crispsgrease proof paper, baking paper, GLAD BAKE, non stick

Ingredients:
2 large egg white (about 64g each with shell)
50g plain flour
60g castor sugar (note 1)
30g butter (melted)
100g almond flakes
1/8 tsp vanilla essence (optional)

Preparation:

  1. Thaw egg white at room temperature.
  2. Sieve plain flour twice.
  3. Melt butter with double boil method. Put butter in a small bowl, transfer to a sauce pan filled with water. Heat the pan with medium flame until the butter melts. Stir occasionally. Set aside to cool down.
  4. Line baking tray with grease proof paper (I used GLAD BAKE non stick baking and cooking paper. Refer to photo above.)
  5. Preheat oven at 170°C.

Methods:

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg white with a hand whisk until you see white bubbles. Add in sugar and beat in circular movement until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Add in flour and mix till no traces of flour and lump-free.
  3. Use a spatula to fold in almond flakes until well-combined.
  4. Stir in melted butter and mix well.
  5. Spoon 1/3 or ½ tablespoon of mixture on the baking tray. Spread out into a round shape (about 2cm diameter) or any other shapes you like using a spoon (note 2).
  6. Bake at 170°C for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. If there is uneven colour among these crisps, rotate the baking tray towards the last 2 minutes (note 3).
  7. Remove from the oven, leave to cool and then store into an air-tight container.

Notes:

  1. I had cut down the original amount of sugar from 90g to 60g.
  2. The layer must be very thin and even (no overlapping of seeds) so that it will be very crispy. You can spread the batter with either the back of the spoon or your wet fingers.
  3. You may have to bake these crisps in 3 rounds. The unbaked mixture can be left in the room temperature.
  4. If you want your almond flakes to be more flavourful, you can bake them in a preheated oven at 170°C for 10 minutes. Use a spatula to stir them once after 5 minutes.
  5. These crisps will become crispy and crunchy after they have cooled down completely.
  6. If these crisps have not turned golden brown after 10 minutes, then bake at 160°C for another 2 minutes. You can flip over the crisps when doing this step.
  7. If these crisps turn soft, you can reheat them for 2-3 minutes at 150°C in a preheated oven.

  26. Sadhana says:

    First time here, love it. Great clicks and fun recipes.

  27. Ash says:

    I baked this today but the crisps sticked to the greaseproof paper :( have a hard time peeling off :( but the taste is great. :) love it and will bake again.

    • food-4tots says:

      Ash: Thanks for sharing your feedback!! Did you use GLAD greaseproof paper (as per the photo shown in the recipe)? This brand is slightly pricey but the quality is fantastic and will surely guarantee to solve your current problem. ;)

      • Ash says:

        I didn’t used the GLAD greaseproof paper. I used those from NTUC and I know where went wrong. The greaseproof paper from NTUC is greaseproof paper n not baking paper. GLAD greaseproof paper is actually baking paper… The NTUC greaseproof paper cannot go into oven (cos there’s a layer of wax) but the GLAD greaseproof paper can.

  29. Yenn says:

    Need ur advice…

    Many thanka in advance

  31. kym tan says:

    Hi, thank you for replying :P
    I have one but i do not know how to attach here :(
    I tried to make them thin…..

  32. Sharon says:

    They are in the oven now….. hehehehe :) Txs for this recipe! <3

  33. Sharon says:

    My son loved it!!! However, I didn’t read the instructions clearly before I attempted the receipe so I only baked one tray- using more than half a tablespoon each of batter for each crisp. When they first were taken outta the oven they were delicious. The next day they turned very chewy and not crispy even though I baked them again for 3mins. I’ll try the receipe again and this time I promise to stick to your recommendations hehehe. No short cut for baking!

  34. pauline says:

    hi
    where you buy almond flakes. can i buy from supermarket?

  35. Karen says:

    Hi, can you advise why is my crisp chewy instead of crispy? I did try to make it as thin as possible but after cooling, they became soft.
    Also, are the crisps supposed to be bit sticky after bake? Thx in advance!

    • food-4tots says:

      Karen: They are supposed to be crisp. As soon as they are cooled, you need to store them in an air-tight container. No, they are not sticky at all. Do you have any photo to show me?

  36. CCL says:

    Thank you… Thank you….
    One of my family’s favourite. It’s a great snack. The first time we made, we made 2 portions, and we plan to make another 2 cos it disappears very fast. Hahaha….
