Thin Crispy Almond Cookie Recipe


Yield: About 40 pieces


  • 125g powdered sugar
  • 15g high gluten flour
  • 25g low gluten flour
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 3 egg whites
  • 150g almond slices


  1. In a medium bowl, sift each flour. Sift the powdered sugar as well, to make sure they don’t clump together.
  2. In a separate small bowl, separate the egg white from the yolk.
  3. Add egg whites and melted butter to the flour/sugar mix.
  4. Stir in almond slices gently into the batter with a rubber spatula.
  5. On a large rectangular baking sheet, lined with either a non-stick silicone mat or greased foil (foil greased with butter, oil or Pam)
  6. Spread the batter onto the baking sheet – make sure it is a thin layer and that the almond slices don’t all stack on top of each other.
  7. Bake at 300F for about 20-30 minutes, checking half way, until golden brown.
  8. Cut into square pieces of desirable size. Best to use a pizza cutter, or you can use a knife or break with your fingers.

    Thank you for the recipe for thin almond cookies, i want to make them, but would like to know if you could convert the recipe into American measures. We are not on the metric system and do not measure in grams.

    Thank you

    im not good on conversion can you please convert em to cups or tsbp?

      That would be difficult and tedious. Since they are all measurements of weight, just buy a kitchen scale and weigh everything out (most models do both oz and g). You should be doing that with baking anyway. Good luck!

    Plenty of websites that have measurement conversions. Just google and plug in the numbers.
