Crispy Almond Bread 杏仁脆饼








There are so many varieties of biscuits and sweeties served during chinese new year. Almond Bread is one of it and it's the only biscuit I eat during chinese new year. At first, I thought I was eating biscotti, but after I google and checked, it's actually different. Almond Bread is similar to biscotti but the ingredients used were different. Almond Bread uses egg whites where as biscotti uses whole eggs. I have yet to try on biscotti's recipe. Perhaps will try on it one day.
Yes, I am a 'picky biscuit eater'. I don't like any of the butter cookies but I like this a lot because it's not oily, well basically no oil added in it and it's a guilt-free snack! Once I started eating 1, I can't stop munching and munching more.....It's very crunchy and packed with nutrients, almond nuts are nutritious. So I made this for my son to eat during snack time in kindergarten. I kept this in an air tight container, whenever I pack his snack box, I just add 3-4 pieces in it.  

Ingredients:

3 Egg Whites 蛋白 3粒

120g All Purpose Flour (sifted) 面粉 120克 (过筛)

90g Castor Sugar 糖 90克 

120g Whole Almonds 杏仁 120克







Preheat oven 180'C 预热烤箱 180度

Method:

1. In a stand mixer, whisk egg whites in medium speed till foamy. Gradually add in sugar then whisk in high speed till stiff.
把蛋白打发,慢慢加入糖,打至硬性发泡。

2. Stir in sifted flour and almonds.
加入面粉和杏仁,搅拌均匀。

3. Pour mixture in a lightly greased dish. 
把面糊倒入模具里(蛋糕模要预先涂些油)。



4. Bake 180'C for 30 minutes till light brown.
烘烤30分钟。

5. Remove from oven, let it cool in the dish.
烘烤后取出待凉。



6. When it's completely cooled, remove from dish and sliced thinly. 
切成薄片。(看下图)







7. Place on a lined tray, bake 130'C for 35-40 minutes till crispy and crunchy. (Baking time depends on the thickness).
烤盘铺上油纸,把切好的杏仁饼片放在烤盘,不要重叠。放进预热烤箱,以130度烘烤35-40分钟或至香脆。
每个人切杏仁片的厚度有别,烘烤时间须自己拿捏。



8. Let it cool completely before storing in an air tight container.
待凉后放进密封罐。



9. The left over bread (before slicing), can wrap with aluminum foil and keep in the freezer for 1-2 weeks. 
如果不要一次烘烤,也可以把其余的用锡纸包好,收进冰箱冷藏。若喜欢我的食谱,可以LIKE和追随我的面书专页,不要错过最新食谱发布。

Oreo Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream (without ice cream maker)




The smooth and creamy ice cream with the peanut butter swirl. Yummy!!

The weather was too hot here, it's melting too fast that I can't get a nice shot of it. 

My boy likes ice cream, but not all ice cream...only Anderson's and Ben & Jerry's ice cream that he never wants to share with anyone. I seldom buy ice cream tubs to keep in my freezer but I like to make my own. At least I know what ingredients I used in the ice cream. 
I used to make sorbet with fresh fruits or frozen fruits for him. But this time, I want to make something creamy....something that can pair with my overstock Oreo cookies. I got some left over thickened cream after I made his blueberry scones, just nice for the creamy and smooth Oreo Peanut Butter Ice Cream.

M&M Oreo Cookie Bars



 I made this colorful cookie bars for my son's birthday party in kindergarten. The original recipe of this cookie bars should be a little moist and chewy, but because I baked this 2 days in advance of his birthday party, I baked till it's crunchy in order to keep it longer. Well, I personally like the crunchy version more than the moist and chewy one.

1 Large Egg
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 cup All Purpose Flour
14 Oreo Cookies (I use blueberry ice cream oreo, with a little minty flavor)
1/2 cup Mini M&M

4. Pour 1/3 of the batter into a lined baking tray.
5. Layer oreo cookies and pour the remaining batter over the cookies. Sprinkle M&M on top.



6. Bake for 20 minutes. (At this stage, cookie bars are chewy)
