Croquants de Cordes

Written by Ben

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!

The recipe from the site Marmiton:
It makes around 24 cookies.
-2 egg whites
-230g caster sugar
-50g flour
-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 ^^-
