Our Ticks of Yum

Almond Puffs

Posted by Bee & John on July 22, 2010 at 2:56 AM

Well... I know I was supposed to stick with the everyday cookbook..... but I saw a CWA cookbook in one of those collections of books you get for sale at your work... and just couldn't resist.

After all!  If Thermomix allows you to go "back to basics" easily - then what is better than a cookbook that was written in 1929!  Admittedly it has a shiny new hard cover and looks new, but..

So.... I thought I would try some of those recipes too and convert them after I've tried them.

DELISH!  The almonds, somehow, go in the middle with the flour encasing it like a little pie.  Makes 12

  • 90g ground almond (cheaper to do it in the TMX - 15 seconds on8)

Put the almond meal into a small bowl (like a soup bowl)

  • Melt 90g of butter on 100oC for 1 minute on slow

  • add the ground almonds,
  • add 90g of flour (easy to grind some seeds or grain for someone who is gluten intolerant)
  • add 60g of sugar
  • add 125g of milk
  • add a flat teaspoon of baking soda

  • mix for 30 seconds on 4
Use your spatula to put it all into that small bowl (remember - no metal spoons in the TMX!)

  • Divide equally into 12 patty cases.  Each patty pan takes approx a heaped soup spoon of mixture.  They aren't very big, but there's quite a bit of nut mixture, you don't want them too big. 

  • Cook in a pre-heated oven on 180oC for 20 minutes.

Cool on a tray and bask in the glory of the people who eat them!!

They are very nice - next time I might...

  1. add a little more sugar - they're nice but not that sweet
  2. or sprinkle them with sugar when they come out
  3. OH!  Cinnamon and sugar when they come out!!
  4. try them with walnuts, or a mixture of walnuts and almonds
