Almond Curls Recipe

Almond Curls Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 30

100 g/4 oz/1 cup flaked (slivered) almonds
100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup butter or margarine

100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup caster (superfine) sugar
30 ml/2 tbsp milk
1530 ml/12 tbsp plain (all-purpose) flour

Method:

Place the almonds, butter or margarine, sugar and milk in a pan with 15 ml/1 tbsp of the flour. Heat gently, stirring, until blended, adding the remaining flour if necessary to make the mixture hold together. Place spoonfuls well apart on a greased and floured baking (cookie) sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 180C/ 350F/gas mark 4 for 8 minutes until light brown. Leave to cool on the baking sheet for about 30 seconds, then shape them into curls around the handle of a wooden spoon. If they become too cool to shape, return them to the oven for a few seconds to warm again before shaping the remainder.
