Video: Almond biscuits. Dipped in chocolate. Plus me.
As many times before, I found my fridge full of egg whites.
The majority of recipes I love use only egg yolks, so this was just the consequence.
To solve the problem without throwing away food (I hate that!), I looked for an egg-white-only recipe on my Italian book by the master himself Iginio Massari and found this gem: chocolate-dipped almond biscuits… perfect for tea time.
The recipe is very easy to make, although the dough was very hard at the end and I had to leave it at room temperature for a while before I was able to pipe it well.
The only difficulty in the recipe is in tempering chocolate, but if you follow the instructions with a thermometer you might succeed at the first attempt (and even if you fail, you can start from scratch at any time).
Oh, by the way, this is also the first video in which I appear!!! 😛 I think I still need some practice when speaking in front of a camera, but I hope you like the video. Let me know in the comments what you think!
