Utensils

whisk and a large bowl, pastry brush, wire rack and air tight container

  • Step 1/7

    • 18¼ g almond flour
    • 27⅜ g all-purpose flour
    • 18¼ g sugar
    • tsp baking powder
    • tsp baking soda
    • tsp salt
    • whisk and a large bowl

    Combine all the dry ingredients in a stand mixer. With your mixer on low medium speed (with the beater attachment), mix all together.

  • Step 2/7

    • 9⅛ g vegetable oil

    Slowly add oil and mix until a cohesive dough forms.

  • Step 3/7

    The dough should be just enough to hold its shape when you try to roll it into a ball. If they look more like crumbs, add 2-3 tsp (10-15 ml) vegetable oil at a time.

  • Step 4/7

    Weigh the dough to make 1-inch (2.5 cm) cookie (0.4 oz, 10 g) or 1 ½-inch (3.8 cm) cookie (0.7 oz, 20 g). Roll the dough into a ball with your palms. Place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and repeat until all the dough is used up. You can make a 10-gram ball using a teaspoon measuring spoon.

  • Step 5/7

    • almond

    [optional] If you want to put a piece of almond on the cookie, hold the cookie ball on your palm and gently press the almond into the dough

  • Step 6/7

    Beat the egg yolk in a small bowl. Using a pastry brush, lightly glaze the top of the cookie balls with the egg yolk.
