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!

  • Today I have been planning recipes, working on new design commissions - and tidying my small, but perfectly formed  stash of beautiful British wool!
#bririshwool #britishfibre #wool #stashenhancement #minimalism #knittersofinstagram #crochet Slow down, look around you and see the beauty in small things. Breathe fresh air, watch sunsets, make time for friendship, love and laughter. 
A bit philosophical for a wet Tuesday morning, felt the need to remind myself there is beauty in the ordinary. 
#slowliving #naturelovers #foraging #permaculture #homesteading #keepthewildinyou #hedgerows #beautyintheordinary Major dessert envy last night - Mr T chose the baked alaska - need to go back & try this for myself! Delicious food, great service & my "Heaton Mess" was delicious!! Oh and the gin menu - superb! If you find yourself in Newcastle check this place out - Chillingham Rd. Xxx
#heaton #puddinglove #newcastle #eatingout #instafood #foodphotography #bakedalaska Passionflower. One of the joys of our holiday this year was stumbling across the unexpected. We walked past a garden fence covered in these flowers & their ripening fruit. In my schoolgirl French I asked the elderly gentleman if I could take a photo, in better English than my French he invited us in to admire his plot. You can read more about him on the blog, where I've also been writing about how having too much can be a good thing - even if you're a minimalist!

Finally got a photo of me wearing my new sweatshirt, bought from @mirandagorebrowne I ♥♥♥ it so much. The fabric is soft, it fits really well and now washed 3 times it still looks like new! Go buy one before they sell out (also available: "nice buns" & "jammy dodger")
