Anything crunchy or crispy can be very addictive. That’s why crisps, or tuiles, are selling very well. Why not make your own one? It’s healthier and taste better, free from preservatives and additives, too. Homemade food is always the best. Pumpkin Seeds Crisps (Tuiles) is one crisp that I made every now and then for my family. It’s very delicious and addictive. Well, at least it’s quite a comfort to know that it’s a healthy crisp. Sometimes I use sunflower seeds or almond flakes.
I made this last week for a few friends whom I invited over to my place for a simple Chinese New Year lunch. Martha, the lovely lady who made the most impressive strawberry jelly for our Chinese New Year Women’s Hot Pot Party liked it so much that she wanted me to post the recipe as soon as possible as she wants to make them. Of course I would, hopefully in return for some strawberry jelly…haha.
So here is the recipe…..simple and easy.
2 egg whites
50g plain flour
100g pumpkin seeds
2T butter (melted)
Mix the egg white and the sugar. Add the vanilla, flour and mix well. Finally add the seeds and melted butter and mix. You can adjust the sugar and amount of seeds according to your preference.
Spoon onto paper-lined baking trays and spread it out thin. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness, or until crisps. Do not overbake. Cool and enjoy.
