Almond Crisp Cookie Recipe


I grew up with lots of goodies sitting around during the holidays. My mom would make peanut brittle and delicious fudge among lots of baked goods. I remember our neighbors dropping by a plate of delicious treats, too.

When I had my own family I continued to make the same things, but added treats like Christmas Crack, toffee, and cranberry bread. I thought I would add something new to the mixture so I found this recipe for Almond Crisps and made it my own. I loved the idea of making them into a bowl to serve peppermint ice cream in. I tested these out on my family and they loved them. If fact, I saw a few kids licking their bowls. The almond crisp cookie bowl is just perfect size to hold a scoop of ice cream. We added a bit of drizzled chocolate to the top, too. Oh my. They are so good served this way.

Another thing I love about this recipe is that they can be rolled into pirouettes. Have you ever eaten the amazing Pepperidge Farm chocolate pirouettes? These are very similar and I love them. Here is the easy recipe. I hope you try them.   


Almond Crisp Ingredients


The ingredients for the almond crisps are simple items you may already have in your pantry.

  • flour
  • sugar
  • butter
  • eggs
  • almond extract
  • chocolate chips (optional)


Cookie Ingredients


Almond Crisp Instructions


Making the cookies are just as easy as the ingredients are. The most time consuming thing is waiting for the egg whites to become room temperature and the butter to cool. Once that’s done the cookies go together really quickly.

  • Beat the egg whites in a standing mixer. It’s nice to walk away and get other things done while waiting for the egg whites to whip. I put the mixer on high and whip the egg whites to soft peak.
  • Once the egg whites are whipped add the sugar and continue to whip them on high until stiff peaks form.
  • Add half of the flour and fold the mixture together. Once that is done add the cooled butter and almond extract and continue to mix with a spoon. Then add the remaining flour and mix well. You will want the mixture to be a bit runny.
  • That’s it. Grease or spray a baking pan well and place a tablespoon of mixture on the pan and spread out. I like to use the back of a spoon that has been sprayed with cooking oil. Sometimes I found it easier to use my finger that had been sprayed.

  • Bake for 5-6 minutes at 375 degrees or until the edges are golden.
  • Once baked remove and immediately roll them on a greased wooden spoon handle for pirouettes or placed on the backside of a muffin pan for dessert bowls.




  • The cookies will harden quickly.
  • The options are endless on what to do with your crisps. You can fill pirouettes with Nutella or dip in melted chocolate. Add ice cream or chocolate mousse to the bowls and create a delicious dessert.

Almond Crisps

A sweet crisp cookie that can be shaped into a bowl or rolled and dipped in chocolate for a beautiful presentation dessert.

Course Dessert
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 10 Cookies
Calories 36 kcal


  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)
  • 2 tsp. shortening (optional)


  1. In a mixing bowl let egg whites stand for 30 minutes at room temperature.

  2. In a small saucepan heat butter or margarine over low heat just until melted. Set aside to cool.

  3. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl).

  4. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight).

  5. Fold in about half of the flour.

  6. Gently stir in butter or margarine and almond extract.

  7. Fold in the remaining flour until combined.

  8. Drop tablespoons of batter at least 3 inches apart onto greased baking sheet (Be sure to grease between batches.). Spread batter into 3 inch circles. Spraying oil on the back of the spoon helps or using your finger sprayed with oil may work better for you. (Bake 3 cookies at a time.).

  9. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 5-6 minutes or until cookies are golden.

  10. Immediately remove a cookie from the baking sheet. For pirouettes, place the cookie upside down on the counter and quickly roll it around a greased handle of a wooden spoon. Slice the cookie off the handle and cool on a wire rack. For tulip cups, place the warm cookie on an inverted muffin pan. Working quickly repeat with the remaining warm cookies. (If they harden before you can shape them, reheat them in the oven for about a minute.)

  11. To dip the pirouettes, in a small, heavy saucepan heat chocolate and shortening over low heat just until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Dip one end of each cookie into the chocolate mixture. Let excess drip off. Transfer to a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Let stand until chocolate is set.

Recipe Notes

Be sure to roll batter evenly with a spoon on the baking sheet. If the middle is too thick it will break apart.

    Totally get the quest for free porno movies. One legal option you might want to check out is Crackle. It has a decent collection of movies, and it’s free with ads. Another cool one is Tubi, they’ve got a diverse selection and it won’t cost you a dime. Just keep in mind, with free services, there might be some ads, but they’re usually not too intrusive. Happy movie watching!

    What a delicious treat these almond chips are! They have the ideal balance of nutty and crispy flavors, which makes them impossible to resist. I adore that they have just the right amount of sweetness to satiate my desires. In addition, they’re simple to prepare at home, which is fantastic for on-the-go snacks like me. And, hey, I know where to find someone to write my assignment for me cheap if I overindulge and need more time to prepare another batch!
