Because almonds are in all of my Lush products, im trying to incorporate it into my diet a lot more, its gotta be good for both inside and out!
This recipe is from bbc good food, they’re supposed to be a bit like amaretti biscuits, they go well with yogurts and other desserts, theyre light and fluffy. And if you do it the way i did it (i never follow a recipe properly, ever) then they’re a little more interesting and unique.
- 4 egg white
- 140g caster sugar
- 2 tbsp plain flour
- 140g ground almond
- Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment. Place the egg whites in a clean bowl and whisk until they form soft peaks. Add the sugar and continue to whisk for a few mins more until the whites are glossy. Sift the flour onto the whites, spoon over the almonds, then fold everything together quickly, keeping the mixture light and airy.
- Spoon tbsps of the almond mix, well spaced apart, onto the prepared trays. Bake for 20 mins until golden. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. Serve with the gooseberry fool. These biscuits are best freshly baked but will keep in a sealed container for up to a week.
What i did different:
I used whole almonds and ground them myself (took forever.) as you can see on the surface of the top (before baking) photo those chunks wouldn’t be there if the recipe was followed exactly, but i like crunch!
I made these a few days ago and they’re all gone! everyone loved them 🙂 Have them with natural yogurt. Yum.
