Gaga, Irmina: Thank you for your nice comments ;D
Oh again, my comment went missing! Anyway, I was curious about the recycle sheet that you mentioned about! Is it the wax paper sheet you're using?
Kristy: No, this is not wax paper. Is reusable baking sheet like plastic sheet. After each baked, I wash with soapy water and hang dry. Also can it from Phoon Huat.
Estas son mis preferidas.Merry Christmas!!

Saju, Thanks for visiting. You've nice blog too.
You've got a nice round biscuit here! I was too lazy and did the short cut way 😛
Hello Joy: Sure, here it is! Make sure you catch it…hahaa…
Merry Christmas to you 😀
Hi Janice, How are you? The portion of this recipe is quite small. I think about 40 pcs.
@mummyooiAre you using the non-stick baking sheet or silicon paper from Phoon Huat? You don't have to add butter or foil on the baking sheet. Just spread the batter, try to spread as thin as possible, the center should be thinner than the edge.
@AnonymousJessie, I usually use the egg yolk first and keep the egg white in the fridge. Not sure can keep the egg yolk or not.It is sitting one hour before you drop the batter on the baking tray. You can try not resting it.I don't is advisable to add milk which the result will be in different texture anyway the batter should be thick. Try not to reduce the sugar too much.
oh i see… hmmm no i didnt add butter on to the baking sheet… I'm from Kuching. Well will try again next weekend.. hehehe thanks for your advise really appreaciate it…
Hi Anncoo,I am totally new to baking and I have tried out this recipe, they taste nice n crispy. May I know what can I do to the yolk as this recipe use only the white? Is it a must to let it sit for an hour before baking? I reduced the amt of sugar and found that the batter is a bit thick, can I add in some milk or is there any other alternative to make the batter thinner? Thank you. Jessie
Ann, my friend tried ur almond flake biscuit posted dec 2009 but the batter is very thick n sticky and cant even lay down on the baking tray evenly. From the photo of u it looks watery. Anything wrong that u can comment? Thanks.
Yea, I'm using the non-sticky baking sheet. What is the another alternative besides the non-sticky baking sheet as i do not have time to go to the bakery to get one during the weekday…
Hi Anncoo,Thanks for the recipe and i'd tried it but my cookies sticked to the baking sheet and not able to be removed. Shall I spread a layer of butter or aluminium foil might help?Hope to hear your reply.Thanks.
Clary, I mean add butter in the batter not baking sheet. if you're using the non stick baking sheet, shouldn't be any problem. I suggest you brush some shortening or crisco on baking sheet next time before you make this cookies.
Hi Tracy: Try to cheat a little. When spreading the batter, spread the centre thinner than the outer side.
Thanks Anncoo. This is how mine turn out. Btw its not easy to spoon the batter to form a nice round biscuits. I almost throw in white towel 🙂 Your biscuits turn out is perfect. Great job! http://fatmumbaking.blogspot.com/2010/01/flaked-almond-biscuits.html
I tried making the cookies last time but it turn out brown on the outer side and white in the centre. the colour is not even.how do i bake until it's so nicely done like yours?
Jane,did your friend add melted butter or she had lessen too much sugar? OR is it she add flour to the egg whites instead? Many bloggers made this and so far not much problem. When spreading batter just remember to spread it as thin as possible, the center batter should be thinner than the edge.Anyway sorry for the recent comments in the new system, really gave a big headache (I'm really sick now 真的生病了), most probably will switch back to my old system.
@mummyooiYou have to remove the biscuits with a palette knife about 30 seconds after the tray of biscuits taken out from oven. There are many bloggers making this, so far no problem. Maybe next time you grease your tray with some butter or shortening to prevent sticking.
wow.. thank god i saw your blog, i finally found my favorite cookies's recipe. so happy and i had tried it, it is so wOnDeRfUl!! and Successful. Thank you so much!!=] Happy Chinese New year!! ALL tHe BeSt!!
I didn't do mine in curves, neither did I bake them in rounds, I just spread a thin BIG piece and break it up randomly when cooked 😛
Hi Clary, Firstly the baking sheet is non stick type and did you add butter? Don't wait until the cookies cooled down, remove it when cookies is still hot. Are you from Singapore? If so get the baking sheet from Phoon Huat. There are few blogger friends had tried this recipe, so far I did not hear this problem. Let me know how is it.
Hi Ann,I've just finished making the cookies but according to your recipe we need the baking sheet right… we'll i've used it but seems like the cookies are sticked to the sheets and can't be removed unless i tear it… Any advise?
I like all things almond and this is interesting. Have not seen this! Gotta try. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Your photos are so beautiful, Ancoo. And I love this recipe, I must try it since I am an almond lover.
Oh my~ how can u make such a round shape biscuits evenly by using the spoon?? Mine turned out all different shapes when i made this last time.. =.=
Oh, Those cookies look fantastic and it sounds so yummy. I'd love to try some.:)
Oh wow, that is one super thin cookies. How you get the size all so uniform?
The size of the biscuits is very consistent, you are a great chef!
They are as thin as paper crepe except that these are crunchy. Nice… Can send some over to Adelaide or not?? Please…
