These amaretto biscuits are great after dinner with a digestif or I like to nibble on one with my morning coffee.
They are very moreish to have lying around so, if you are making them as a gift, get them packaged and sealed quickly — or you will be making them a second time.
- Preheat oven to 170C. Line two baking trays with paper.
- Beat the egg whites until firm. Fold through the sugar, almonds and essence or liqueur.
- Place teaspoonsful of the mixture on to the trays. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, until they just start to get a bit of colour.
- Remove and cool on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar and store in airtight containers.
