Cooking method :
In the oven
- 160 grams of protein (about 4 pcs.)
- 120 grams of sugar (finely ground)
- 100 g of almond flour
- 60 g of powdered sugar (+ 1 tablespoon for sprinkling)
Recipe for cooking at home
Peel the almonds from the peel, dry them in a dry frying pan and grind them into flour using a grinder or blender. Mix almond, wheat flour and powdered sugar.
Chop the egg whites into a mixer until a thick foam forms. Do not stop whipping the whites, pour in fine sugar and beat until soft peaks (as in the photo). When turning the bowl, the squirrels should not fall out of it.
Add the flour mixture to the beaten proteins and mix the dough with several movements. Do not mix for a long time, so that it does not opal. Prepare sheets of parchment paper, draw on them circles with a diameter of 18-20cm. Turn the painted side down on the baking sheet (so that the pencil does not print on the biscuit).
Using a pastry bag or a packet with a cut off corner, draw spiraling circles within the drawn circle. Of the indicated amount of the test, 4 biscuits come out. Sprinkle biscuits half the sugar powder through a sieve, leave for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, sprinkle the biscuits with the remaining powder and leave again for 5 minutes. Bake dakuaz at 180C for 15-20 minutes. After baking, transfer the products along with the paper to the grate and leave until completely cooled. The cooled biscuit is removed from the paper and used for its intended use.
