Ingredients

  • 125 g Ground almonds
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Egg whites
  • ½ tsp Vanilla
  • 2 drops Almond essence
  • 20 Blanched almonds

Preparation

Combine ground almonds, sugar, egg whites, vanilla and almond essence in a mixing bowl. Beat mixture with electric whisk on medium speed for about 3 minutes. Let mixture rest for 5 minutes while you prepare baking trays with non stick baking paper and pre heat oven to 180 C. Spoon mixture into a piping bag with a 1 cm plain tube. Pipe mixture onto the baking paper in a circular motion to form a biscuit. Place one blanched almond on top of each biscuit and bake for about 12 - 15 minutes or until tops are lightly brown. Remove from the oven, leave to cool for a few minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool.
