Almond Crisps Recipe

Hello all! I have been stopping to blog on my bento for quite some time. The reasons are because I only pack very simple snack bento for my little girl to daycare/nursery which I don't think the bento is worth to blog about. It is just very simple one. But I do take photos of the bentos I made occasionally. I update in my IG very timely usually. LOL. 

As Chinese New Year is around the corner, everyone is rushing to do spring cleaning and baking. For me, I have not started on spring cleaning yet, but I started baking. I started with almond crisps this year as I found this recipe for quite some time and I just can't wait to try! This almond crisps is a hit for my little girl and big man in the house! I uploaded my almond crisps photo to my fb wall and also baking group, and it was a hit among the baking mommies too. Many requested for the recipe, so I think it is better for me to quickly share the recipe here, so you guys manage to try this recipe for CNY bake. :)


Almond Crisps Recipe
(recipe adapted from food-4tots - you may check out this page for step-by-step photo tutorial)

Ingredients
2 large egg white, room temperature
50g plain flour (sifted twice) I used organic unbleached plain flour
60g castor sugar 
30g unsalted butter (melted)
100g almond flakes

Instructions
1. Line the baking tray with parchment paper.
2. Pre-heat the oven to 160 degree Celcius.
3. Whisk the egg white with hand whisk until you see white bubbles. Add in castor sugar and beat until the sugar dissolves.
4. Add in sifted flour and mix well until no traces of flour and lump-free.
5. Use spatula to fold in the almond flakes gently so not to break the almond flakes.
6. Stir in melted butter and mix well.
7. Spoon 1 teaspoon of mixture on the baking tray. Spread out the mixture using fork. Try to spread it very thinly and evenly (no overlapping of the flakes).
8. Bake at 160 degree Celcius for 13-15 minutes. 
9. Remove from the oven and leave it cool completely before store them into the air tight container.
