Package Almond thins

Made from candy sugar, pure butter, and sun ripened almonds from Valencia, this fine almond biscuit was the beginning of Jules Destrooper's success.

Almond thins are often confused with speculoos in recipe books. These biscuits are closely related as they share a lot of ingredients. The biscuit dough that is formed with these ingredients must rest in a cool place overnight. The day after, it should be cut into very thin slices and baked.

Description

Details

This delicate biscuit made with real butter, sugar candy and ripe soft almonds from Valencia in 1886 laid the foundation of Biscuiterie Jules Destrooper. Originally the biscuit was a business gift for the customers of Jules Destrooper, a merchant of colonial wares. The biscuit was very much appreciated and soon the first orders starting coming in. Almond thins are, according to the ‘Academy for Regional Gastronomy’, a speciality of Brussels, Veurne as well as Lo-Reninge, and are closely related to speculoos. In fact, they are are often confused with speculoos in recipe books. The reason is clear: the two biscuits share many ingredients. Both are prepared with brown sugar and a mixture of ground nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, ginger powder and cloves, all traditional spices for baking biscuits and cake. This tough cake dough must be left overnight in a cool place. The next day the dough is sliced very finely and place on a baking tray to be baked.

Did you know that the biscuit was first used as a corporate gift for the clients of Jules Destrooper? It was such a success that more and more orders started to come in. The rest is history...
