orange juice



icing sugar






black and white sesame seeds, mixed

As needed:


citrus zest

Preparation method

  • Melt the butter without letting it become too hot.
  • Finely chop the almonds in a food processor (cutter) and mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl using a spatula.
  • Set aside to firm up in the refrigerator.
  • Use a small ice cream scoop to scoop little mounds of the mixture onto a baking sheet with baking paper. Make sure you leave enough space between the scoops because they will spread out when baked.
  • Bake at 190°C for 10 minutes.
  • If you wish to shape the cookies do so immediately after taking them out of the oven. At that point the sugars will not yet have caramelised and can still be shaped.
  • Store in an air-tight container with silicone granules to keep them crunchy. 

Serving suggestions

  • Small, thin wafers to use as a garnish or serve as a friandise.
  • Use in a composition with components of ginger, white chocolate, and vanilla.
  • Use in a composition with components of yuzu, almond, and ricotta.
