First ITJB bake -- Almond Splats!
Okay, they were supposed to be almond horns, but I had a great deal of trouble measuring the egg whites our properly. Even after beating, I would get blobs of albumen which would fluctuate the weight over and under and I finally thought, how big a difference would 4 - 5 grams of egg white make? Oops! Any suggestions on the egg whites are appreciated. Perhaps I should have just thrown out the offending albumen strand.
I had to improvise using cold dough and spooning it out on to sliced almond covered parchment. The saving grace here as these splats taste wonderful! To borrow a line from Guy Fieri, you could spread the home made almond paste on a rubber flip flop and it would still be good. The ITJB adventure begins!
