Croquants aux amandes
During the cold of the winter you yearn for the warmth of summer. Best time to get a bit if France on your plate. The crunchiness and the fine flavour of almonds will ripe you right out of the snowy and foggy days. They pair well with a cappuccino or a café au lait. Hopefully you will have as much fun as we had while baking and eating.
Preparation Time: 30min
Total Time: 75min
Ingredients (for 10 pieces):
125g fine sugar
125g whole almonds
1/2 packet of baking powder
2 small eggs
orange blossom water
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Put the flour, sugar, yeast, 2 eggs, and a dash of orange blossom water in a bowl. Mix well. Add the whole almonds at the end and continue to knead to incorporate them well.
Pour the mixture onto a floured work surface. If necessary, add more flour if you find the mixture too sticky. Shape the dough into two balls.
Place them on a sheet of greaseproof paper, spacing them out as they will expand during baking.
Bake them in an oven at TH 180°C for 30 minutes. Remember to turn the tray over halfway through the cooking time to ensure even cooking. When you take them out of the oven, cut them while they are still hot.
I baked them again for 5 minutes to dry them out even more, but some people prefer them a little softer and still warm.
