Almond Filo Pastry


These crispy crisps are very suitable for snacking and can be addictive too.  It's simple and easy to prepare but you must work quickly when preparing this pastry as the Filo sheets dry up very quickly, more so in our hot weather.  These are light and refreshing and should they lose their crispiness later, just pop them into the oven toaster to reheat.


Recipe for Almond Filo Pastry

Ingredients
  • 5 sheets of Filo pastry
  • 1 egg white
  • 30 gm melted butter or oil (I used butter)
  • 40 gm sugar
  • 30 to 40 gm almond flakes
Method
  1. Place the Filo sheets on a board, cut into half.  (Cover the sheets with parchment paper and place a damp cloth on top to prevent the sheets from drying).
  2. Beat the egg white with a ball whisk till foamy and broken down, add in the melted butter, mix well.
  3. Place a sheet of pastry on the board, brush with the egg white butter mixture, sprinkle the sugar on top generously.
  4. Then place another sheet of pastry on top of the first and repeat the process till you have 5 sheets of pastry, all brushed with egg white mixture and sprinkled with sugar.
  5. Cut the sheets into equal sizes, about 1.1/2 inches x 2 inches, then sprinkle the almond flakes on top.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 4 to 5 mins.till golden brown and crispy. Let cool on the pan before removing them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Store them in an airtight container.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
