It was Chinese New Year a few weeks ago and we were at Hub’s parents. Hub’s brother’s girlfriend made some almond flakes cookie crisps and it went down really well…there was not enough to go around.
I quite fancy loads to munch on myself so I decided to try to make some myself.
Went web surfing and made some modification on the recipes I found. I then made a few batches and distributed to some friends to try. It was a hit and friends started to ask for the recipe, so here it is:
1. Beat egg white and sugar till sugar dissolved and bubbly (you can use a hand whisk or an electric whisk, I used the latter)
2. Add flour, almond flakes and melted butter, and combine well with a spoon. Leave it to rest in the fridge so it thickens a little (I’ve left it overnight before to save time).
3. Spoon about 0.5 teaspoon batter onto a non-stick baking sheet (1 teaspoon if you prefer bigger crisps, I make mine smaller as my munchkins have smaller mouths and as they are soooo crispy the cookies break as you bite into them …making a mess…best to make bite size portions) . If your so called ‘non-stick baking sheet is rubbish and sticks, spray or spread a thin layer of butter/oil on the sheet before spooning the batter.
