Rico Almond and Coconut Biscuits

Receita em Portugues Clique AQUI.

One other day I made a spaghetti carbonara my own recipe ,and used 3 egg yolks to achieve a velvety cream, I was however left with 3 egg whites, I know I already made a cake here on the blog to use egg whites ...well this is one more way of using them and is so easy I beg you all to make them really, maybe with some alteration add some dried figs or anything they are great (I invented them today) with other left overs I had in the cupboard.

Picture on the left shows them still in the tray after cooking on the non stick Teflon, which is a great idea for cookies/biscuits, especially if they have no "grease" as this ones take no butter oils or margarine's..nothing....

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 100grs ground almonds
  • 100grs rice flour (fine)
  • 50grs coconut (dessicated)
  • 4 spoons of self raising flour
  • 1 tea spoon of baking powder
  • 3 egg whites
  • 250grs of sugar
  • (optional lemon zest and or vanilla essence)
  • some whole almonds with skin.
  • a little of thick granulated brown sugar

This is soooooo easy you must really make and please spread the word on my blog address to others I am making all this economical and good recipes but so little views I am finding it frustrating that not many people are benefiting from them.

Here it goes, in a bowl mix the egg whites with the sugar beat it so hard that it becomes a very dense white cream, then throw in all the dried stuff all well mixed, fold it in with a spatula until homogeneous, then with two spoons shape each biscuit and put them on a tray preferably with a Teflon sheet, if not grease it and flour it, or anything else you do for them not to stick. Place and almond in the center of each and some brown granulated sugar on top, bake in the oven (180c) for 17-20 minutes depending on the oven, take them out let them cool and eat them all without sharing them joking share them with your loved ones ...and maybe send me some too :)
