Pumpkin seeds crisps (tuiles)

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
100g sugar
1/4t vanilla
50g plain flour
100g pumpkin seeds
2T butter (melted)

Batter with pumpkin seeds

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.

Ready to go into the oven

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.

Blackswan  on March 2nd, 2010

OMG! This looks so yummy! Can I fry it instead? I’ve no oven to bake. LOL!

Little Inbox  on March 2nd, 2010

With oven baked, this is much more healthy!

Christine @ Fresh Local and Best  on March 2nd, 2010

These crisps look quite intriguing and delicious!

Selena Ze Arteest  on March 3rd, 2010

Oh I am a kind of addicted of pumpkin and sunflower seeds. And peanut is my love since my childhood.

tia  on March 3rd, 2010

ooh they look so buttery and enticing. wow, send some this way!

Mary  on March 3rd, 2010

@Janice - Give a try. I have been eating a lot :D and have just made another batch.

@Juliana - Thanks very much, Juliana! :D

@joey - Thanks very much, Joey! :D

@hopeeternal - Thanks very much for visiting and comment! Have fun trying :D

@Christine@Christine’s Recipes - I’m sure your friends would love you for that :D You will become popular…haha

@Faith - You are most welcome. Have fun making :D

@Kathleen - Thanks very much, Kathleen! :D

@Zibi - Thanks very much. Have fun baking! :D

@Blackswan - I have not tried frying it. I suppose you can. I would spread it thinly on a non-stick pan to fry a little while first and then transfer to a pot of oil to fry until crisp. The only thing is it will be more oily but I’m sure it will taste very delicious too. Otherwise, time to get an oven! :P

@Little Inbox - Yes, more healthy baked. For me, my kitchen is cleaner, too :D

@Christine @ Fresh Local and Best - They are….very delicious and addictive. I’ve just made another batch and will be munching away today :D

@Selena Ze Arteest - Thanks very much for visiting and comment. Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and peanuts are all healthy food, so that’s good addiction! :D

@tia - I wish I can send you some but I would prefer you to come so that we can have another all women’s party :P It would be more food and more fun :D

kristy  on March 3rd, 2010

Mary, these looks so crunchy and yummy! Btw, I’ve left something for you. Please feel free to stop by my blog. Have a wonderful day!

The Little Teochew  on March 3rd, 2010

What a clever, clever idea! Crispy and crunchy. A winner!

Kristi Rimkus  on March 3rd, 2010

I get pumpkin seeds at Fred Meyer in their bulk bins. They are very inexpensive, and so delicious. I can’t wait to try this. Right up my alley, a healthier treat!

Anju  on March 3rd, 2010

Am sure it tasted as good as it looks. They look so pretty.

xiaoyen  on March 3rd, 2010

This is by far the simpliest and easiest cookie recipe I have come across. I just need to convert the grams to the U.S. measurement metric. We use spoons and cups.

Mary  on March 3rd, 2010

@kristy - Awww….thanks very much for the award! You’ve made my day :D Really appreciate very much! I’ll tell my friend about her jelly recipe.

@The Little Teochew - Thanks very much for your lovely compliment! :D

@Kristi Rimkus - Wow….I wish I can get that too. They are actually very delicious too just plain baked with a sprinkle of salt. Great as snacks….but addictive too :P Have fun trying!

@Anju - Thanks very much, Anju! :D Give a try. They are very delicious.

@xiaoyen - Yes, this recipe is very simple and easy. That’s what Ilike :D I love using cups and spoons but sometimes I also use the metric system.

Catherine  on March 3rd, 2010

These crisps look delicious Mary!

tigerfish  on March 3rd, 2010

Pumpkin seeds. I snack on them!

tasteofbeirut  on March 3rd, 2010

I was looking for a recipe for tuiles (actually coconut) and I think I found it!

Mary  on March 4th, 2010

@Catherine - Thanks very much, Catherine! :D

@tigerfish - I love to snack on them too. The aroma and the crunch is very gratifying :D At least it’s a very healthy snack :)

@tasteofbeirut - Give this a try. Add coconut (use less) instead of the pumpkin seeds. Would love to hear how it goes. :D

grace  on March 4th, 2010

excellent! finally, something new to do with pumpkin seeds! these crisps are unique and undoubtedly quite delicious!

Kitchen Butterfly  on March 4th, 2010

Thanks…..I’ve been meaning to make sesame crisps and peanut brittle for ages……….these pumpkin ones look good!

COLARGOL  on March 4th, 2010

so cute, wonderful, I love it

Mary  on March 4th, 2010

@grace - Thanks very much, Grace! Have fun trying :D

@Kitchen Butterfly - Now you have a few to make :D I love all of them, especially the sesame crisps and this one.

@COLARGOL - Thanks very much, Colargol! :D

Conor @ HoldtheBeef  on March 6th, 2010

I’ll have to make these next time I have pumpkin seeds leftover from pumpkin baking! Love the look of the little green surprises inside :)

Mary  on March 6th, 2010

@Conor @ HoldtheBeef - That’s so wonderful to have your own pumpkin seeds from baking pumpkin. I just buy ready ones. Maybe I should try the butternut squash seeds next time. I love to see the green seeds, too :D

Shirley  on March 8th, 2010

Thats a simple and chewy snack! Looks like fun.

Mary  on March 8th, 2010

@Shirley - It’s very crispy & not chewy. It was fun to make :D I’m sure your children will enjoy helping out.

I love this recipe, and the look of this cookie. Perfect for a witchy night by the fire with some hot tea!

Mary  on March 12th, 2010

@Stella - Thanks very much for visiting and comment, Stella! :D

Gladys  on December 6th, 2014

I just got acquainted with Pumpkin Seeds Crisps when I bought them at Loblaws. They are very addictive. My husband and I really love them. I am so glad you posted the recipe on the internet. Can’t wait to make them myself. Thanks. I have a feeling I will be making them very often.
