Crunchy Snow Ball

Crunchy Snow Ball

The tip is the baking time. Follow the recipe, then you can make crunchy snow balls. Adding fresh cream will make them crunchy and soft.

Ingredients: about 40 balls

Cake flour
75 g
Powdered sugar
30 g
Almond flour
30 g
Skim milk
15 g
Butter
60 g

Steps

1. Leave the butter out at room temperature. Sift the flour together.
2. Knead the room temperature butter and milk together with a spatula until it's like a paste.
3. Add the sifted flour into the bowl and mix lightly.
4. Then, form into a rough ball.
5. Wrap in plastic wrap and leave for more than 2 hours in a fridge. (I make it the day before and let it sit overnight.)
6. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Roll the dough into 2 to 2.5 mm (5 g) size balls. Line up the balls, leaving spaces between.
7. Bake for about 15 minutes at 170°C. It's really soft just after baking.
8. When the batter has cooled a little, sprinkle with the powdered sugar (not listed in the ingredients.)
9. Try using a tea strainer for dusting.
10. It's done. (It's crunchy when you eat it.)

Story Behind this Recipe

The taste will differ depending on how much skim milk you add. I tried several different variations and ended up with this recipe.
