Delices and Gourmandises’ almonds wafers are crispy and light. They are generously garnished with almonds. This pastry is prepared with very little flour, eggs, sugar, and a good amount of almonds. In order to prepare a dozen, it takes nearly 250 g of finely chopped almonds, for only 30 g of flour, 140 g egg whites, 160 g sugar, and 50 g of melted butter. In addition, it is very easy to make.
You just have to merge almonds, sugar and flour in a bowl, then pour in the egg whites and melted butter and mix well. Then let the dough stand in the refrigerator for one hour before preheating the oven to 175 ° C. You need to put the wafers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Each wafers represents a tablespoon of dough. To give it its oval shape, just gently down the dough with a fork. It only takes about ten minutes to cook the wafers.
Nothing beats a soft and sweet dessert to end a good meal. The pairing of this peach and apricot appetizer wine and almond wafers perfectly meets this expectation. The dessert sweet blends perfectly with the character of this wine, and the sweetness of the drink compliments the taste of almond wafers. Their association is delicious to the palate.
To enjoy the full flavor of this wine, be sure to serve it at a temperature between 10 ° C and 12 ° C. Shake the bottle well before serving so that the juice does not remain at the bottom. To sweeten its taste, you can add in some sparkling water.2015-03-29
