Crunchy & Moist Dacquoise

Crunchy & Moist Dacquoise

The outside is crispy while the inside is moist. The aroma of the almonds and the peanut cream makes for a good flavor. A trendy sweet that makes for a wonderful present.

Ingredients: makes 7 barrel-shaped dacquoise treats

Almond powder
80 g
Powdered sugar
30 g
Cake flour
10 g
Egg whites (about 3 eggs' worth)
100 g
Granulated sugar
40 g
Powdered sugar (for topping)
as needed
Peanut cream:
Peanut butter (unsweetened)
50 g
Powdered sugar
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon


1. Combine the almond powder, powdered sugar, and cake flour and sift twice. Leave the peanut butter out at room temperature.
2. Add the granulated sugar to the egg whites in 2 parts. Use a whisk to beat until stiff peaks form to create a stiff meringue.
3. Add the dry ingredients while sifting, and use a wooden spatula to lightly mix, being careful not to destroy the foam. Pour into a pastry bag with a 1 cm opening.
4. Place the barrel mold on a plate covered in cooking paper, and squeeze out the dough to a 1 cm thickness. Use a toothpick to smooth out the shape.
5. Remove the barrel mold and make the shapes, leaving plenty of room inbetween.
6. Use a tea strainer to sift the powdered sugar over the dough, twice, in large amounts. Bake in the oven at 180℃ for 10 minutes, then at 150℃ for 10 minutes.
7. Once they've finished, let them cool as-is. Once they've completely cooked, remove from the baking sheet.
8. Use a wooden spatula to mix together the softened peanut butter and the powdered sugar. Add kirsch for flavor, and create sandwiches using the cooled biscuits.
