MTR #5 - Almond Crisps

I am trying my best to clear the recipes I have tried in the past 2 weeks before I go on a long 1-month vacation in Singapore at the end of this week. First in the list is a nice and crispy almond crisp which I tried on 12 Jan, it was the very first CNY bake I tried this year, way before I started baking my bak kwa. I like this recipe because it uses very little sugar, flour and eggs and absolutely no butter, so my sense of guilt is somehow lesser :)

The recipe is adapted from Minty's Kitchen. I followed her recipe exactly, however instead of 25 pieces, I managed to make 40 pieces, maybe because my almond crisps were smaller and thinner, really paper thin. But they were really crispy and crunchy, very addictive!

  1. Hi your almond crisps look so thin and delicate. So glad you like it. Happy holiday!

  2. wow, it seems that everyone who made these are raving about it.. seems like i should line this up on my list for CNY bakes!

    thanks for linking this up to Best Recipes Ah B

  3. Wow, they look amazing and tempting to make them. I can just imagine the texture of the cookies! Just wondering, what is the secret in making them such paper thin??

    1. There is no secret, I just scooped some batter, and spread it with the back of a spoon as thinly as possible in a circular motion. The batter will thin out and shrink in size so I would smoothen it again in a circular motion.

  4. Ms Bee, very tempting thin & crispy almond crisps !
    BTW, have a safe and pleasant journey home ^-^!
