COFFEE PANELLETS

COFFEE PANELLETS

For the coffee lovers...we suggest you to include coffee into the traditional recipe for panellets. 
Ingredients:
In order to bake the main pastry:
100g of ground coffee
1kg of powder almond
800g of sugar
300g of baked sweet potato
2 or 3 egg whites
 
For decoration we need:
Glazed sugar
Some toasted coffee beans
 
We mix the coffee, the almond, the sugar, the sweet potato and the egg whites to obtain de main pastry. We knead the pastry until it's sticky.
Then we let it settle inside the fridge for at least 24 hours, covered by a wet cotton cloth.
After 24 hours we can start making little balls, shaping them with oval form, and coating them with the glazed sugar. We make a cut in the middle in order to create a coffee bean like looking. 
Finally, we bake them in the oven for 10 minutes and then we let them cool down.
