These are so good. Chewy inside and slightly crunchy outside…mmm. The best part is that they are gluten-free. It’s a really simple and easy to make recipe, only using 5 ingredients. The almond flavour is slightly overpowering for me personally but they are still delicious.
- 3 cups (300g) almond meal or flour
- 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon almond essence
- 3 egg whites
- 1 cup flaked almonds
- Icing sugar to dust, optional
Preheat oven to 180°C. Place non-stick baking paper onto baking trays.
Place almond flakes into a bowl or onto a plate. Combine almond meal, sugar and essence in a large bowl. Add the lightly beaten egg whites and stir until the mixture forms a firm paste.
Roll small balls of the mixture, about 3 cm in diameter in the flaked almonds. Place the balls onto baking paper-lined oven trays and gently flatten them a little.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are lightly browned. Cool on racks. They cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
