Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 3 min.
Toasted flaked almonds : Photo of step #1
Preheat the oven to 150°C (300°F).

Mix 150 g flaked almonds, 3 tablespoons Sugar syrup and 1 teaspoon orange flower water with a fork.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Spread the almonds evenly on a cooking parchment sheet on a baking sheet (important as the almonds are very sticky when they come out of the oven).

Try as far as possible to make sure the almonds are not touching each other.

Stage 3 - 20 min.

Put in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.

Stage 4

Watching very carefully for coloration.

Stage 5 - 1 min.

Immediately after taking them out of the oven, unstick the almonds from the sheet with a wooden spatula and let them fall onto the worktop. They will still be a bit soft while hot, but not for long.

Separate them quickly as far as possible.

After a few minutes (or seconds maybe), the almonds will cool and harden. They will become very crunchy and are now ready.

When cool, keep in an air-tight container.
