Almond Biscuits

Simple Almond Biscuits

plate of amaretti(You can read a blog post about this recipe by clicking here).

These simple almond biscuits are best made in a food processor, if you prefer to use pasteurised egg, they taste just as good made with 2 chicks egg whites. If you need a gluten free biscuit for a trifle these are ideal as they soak up alcohol particularly well. I have even used them as the base for an impromptu Tiramusi!

Preheat the oven to gas mark 4. Gather together your ingredients and impress your friends with your baking talents!

almond biscuit ingredients

Ingredients

150g ground almonds

100g unrefined caster sugar

2 lightly beaten egg whites

2 tablespoons of Amaretto (or almond) liqueur (optional, but does  affect the taste if you leave it out).

Method

Line a baking sheet with silicone paper or baking parchment. Put all the ingredients in the food processor and process for a few seconds until all the ingredients are combined and the mixture resembles soft marzipan.

Scoop out spoonfuls of the mixture and roll into balls (I like mine about the size of a walnut).

Place the balls on the baking sheet.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until browned on the top, but slightly soft to the touch.

Allow to cool on a rack and resist the temptation to eat them all straight away!

  • Beautiful colours! New colours of @edencottageyarns Milburn 4 ply. Destined for a shawl, just for me, not a design commission or work project. Just an excuse to indulge in beautiful yarn. Shown here are Bramble, Catmint and Rain. Also there is a new ECY facebok group called ECY Garden - go check it out.

Colour inspiration in unlikely places. Saw these rocks & my first thought was "ooh perfect colours for a shawl" (& I'm pretty sure that @thefibrecompany has all these shades in its Cumbria fingering). Looks like last weeks big fat royalty cheque is about to be splurged on yarn!!
#colourhunter #lichen #naturelovers #grellow #knittersofinstagram #inspiredbynature #slowliving #thisthingcalledslowliving #theartofslowliving Garter stitch & great yarn = perfect knitting. I picked up this Koigu premium merino on my last visit to @looplondonloves & now I'm teaching my teenage neighbour to knit a little shawlette - much more fun than a garter stitch scarf!

This is the first time I've used @kingcoleltd Zig Zag sock yarn & it's great. I bought this from the Silver Beaded Needle in Cockermouth. I'm loving their new larger premises & expanded yarn section.

#crochet #crochetgirlgang #crochetconcupiscence #crochetaddict #crochetgifts #freepattern #bakingandmaking Finally some crochet! Five years ago I designed these little bags for the  wool shop where I worked I  still make them for wrapping presents - so much nicer (& more sustainable) than paper or plastic.  Link in my profile for details & free pattern.

I've hung this on my kitchen wall, rather pleased with this simple print of 3 plants from my garden (the middle one is from the tiny christmas tree we were given in December at Delamere Forest)
