A quick and easy treat to make. Have a go. Just make sure the egg whites are firm enough 😉
Ingredients (makes 50)
unsalted butter , for greasing
4 large free-range egg whites
350 g caster sugar
350 g ground almonds
30 ml amaretto liqueur
Preheat the oven to 170ºC/gas 3, and grease and line two baking sheets.
In a bowl, whisk the egg whites until firm. Gently fold in the sugar, almonds and amaretto to make a smooth paste.
Using a teaspoon or a piping bag, place dollops of the mixture on the trays, 2cm apart.
Bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, before dusting with icing sugar.
