Those almond cookies are a french tradition recipe from the south of the France and if you wonder about the nature of its name, it comes from a town named Cordes…
It is between a macaron and a “tuile” -flat, lacy and crunchy cookie used mainly for decoration-
What I didn’t know was it is incredibly simple to do, and full of sugar!
Well baked, you can see the bubble net and imagine how crunchy it will be
The recipe from the site Marmiton:
It makes around 24 cookies.
-2 egg whites
-230g caster sugar
-125g roughly crushed almond
Preheat your oven at 180 C,
Mix flour with sugar and add the egg white with a spatula. Do not whisk the mixture. add the crushed almonds. You can let some entire pieces.
Prepare a pan and put on it parchment paper or Silpat.
I baked mine on both and the best baking solution was the perforated pan with Siplat.
With a little spoon, take some of the mixture and put it on your pan.
It will spread a lot so let a lot of space between each cookie.
Bake them for about 12 minutes.
If it doesn’t come out from the parchment paper or Silpat, it means it isn’t baked enough -like macarons ^^-
