Freshly Baked Almond Rings – Guest Post from La Petite Paniere

Time’s flying, ain’t it! This month, the guest blogger I would like to introduce is Linda who blogs at La Petite Paniere. Like I have always said, blogging has introduced me to people from across the globe. Linda is from Algeria but currently lives in Dubai with her family. Wow, Algeria – a country I know nothing about.

If you are a lover of International cuisine, then Linda’s blog is a must visit. You can really get to learn and understand more about traditional Algerian cuisine and dishes. Linda has a way with making her dishes look so delectably gorgeous; go take a look! And my favourite section of her blog – the traditional Algerian dishes.

Today, Linda brings us a batch of freshly baked, melt in your mouth almond rings sprinkled abundantly with decadent pistachios. I loved these almond rings; not only can these made in a jiffy, these are healthy and a perfect snack or tiffin-box addition for your children. I can easily see myself baking a batch of these for my ‘almond crazy’ son.


So here’s goes the recipe for Almond rings – simple yet indulgent.

In Linda’s words;

‘This recipe is from my family; we love to enjoy these little rings in the afternoon with a good “cafe au lait”. Bon Appétit.



Makes 14 rings:

1. 100g of powdered almond
2. 200g of wheat flour
3. ½ teaspoon of baking powder
4. 100g of caster sugar
5. 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
6. 2 egg yolks
7. 170g of soft butter
8. Powdered pistachio for garnish
9. 1 egg yolk for brushing


1. In a food processor add the almond powder, flour, baking powder and the vanilla sugar.
2. Mix for a few seconds, add the egg yolks and mix again to combine.
3. Finally add the soft butter.
4. Remove the dough from the bowl and cover the dough with a plastic wrap.
5. Put the dough into the fridge for 30 minutes.
6. Preheat the oven to 180C degrees.
7. Flour a clean surface and roll out the dough into a long log.
8. Cut into long sticks of 15 centimetres length and 3 centimetres wide then join the two ends to form a ring.
9. Flour a cookie pan and place the rings on the top.
10. Brush the rings with egg yolk and sprinkle the pistachio powder on top.
11. Bake for 20 minutes, till the bottom turns golden; then turn off the oven and keep the rings for 10 more minutes in the oven.
12. Remove allow to cool for 30 minutes.

    There´s a traditional Christmas recipe here called Vanillekipferl this pastry reminds me of – however no pistachio involved. This, pistachio, is exactly what I love about your recipe, so good!

Her blog includes recipes from around the world (from India to the Middle East no name just a few), and also features stunning pictures.

    Did it taste eggy as I don’t use egg wash cause I feel it might be too eggy.



    • vanyadhanya August 4, 2014 at 7:38 am Reply

      Anu, this is a guest post by Linda for my blog as I mentioned in the post. But I will ask her what you asked and get back to you.

      Anu, there is no eggy taste 🙂 Or mix the egg yolk with a little of milk. I hope it helps!
