Step by step recipe

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

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

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Toasted flaked almonds
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.
Toasted flaked almonds
Put in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.

Stage 4
Toasted flaked almonds
Watching very carefully for coloration.

Stage 5 - 1 min.
Toasted flaked almonds
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.

Stage 6
Toasted flaked almonds
When cool, keep in an air-tight container.
Several days in a sealed container.
Home made after Gaston Lenôtre.
