Méthodes

By Michel Bannwarth

 

Ingredients

 

For 1 kg of biscuits

 

Biscuit

To be prepared the previous day

  • 375 g whole almonds
  • 95 g hazelnuts
  • 420 g sugar
  • 5 g vanilla sugar
  • 5 g cinnamon
  • 110 g egg whites

 

 

Icing

  • 35 g egg whites
  • 200 g icing sugar

 

 

Biscuit

The day before, mix the almonds and the hazelnuts with the sugar, the vanilla sugar and the cinnamon.

Add the egg white with a spatula and mix to obtain a soft dough.

Leave to rest in a cloth overnight in the refrigerator.

The following day, lower the dough to 1cm and chop the biscuits with a star shaped biscuit cutter.

 

Icing

Whisk the egg white and the sugar to obtain a dense and firm consistence (shaving cream).

Using a fork, prick one side of each biscuit before soaking the other side in the icing.

Lay the biscuits on a cooking plaque, which you will have previously covered with baking paper and leave to crust overnight.

To finish, preheat the oven and bake at high temperature (280°C – 540°F) for 1 to 2 minutes, until the icing is coloured.

 

The chef’s trick

To obtain an even pastry-roll, spread the dough between two rulers of the desired thickness.
