Almond biscuits
Tasty biscuits that go perfectly with a cup of coffee or tea after dinner

140g caster sugar

250g butter - softened

2 tsp almond extract
1 egg yolk
250g plain flour
50g ground almonds
2 tbsp flaked almonds

Heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Put the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy.

Add the almond extract and egg yolk and briefly beat to combine.

Sift in the flour into a bowl and add the ground almonds - stir until the mixture is combined.

Use your hands in the end to pull the ingredients together and press the dough into a cylinder shape – approx 8cm in diameter.

Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes in the fridge.

Remove the stick of dough from the fridge and, using a sharp knife, slice off 1cm thick rounds.

Place on the baking tray and spinkle a few flaked almonds on top of each biscuit.

Bake for 10-12 mins until pale golden, then lift onto a wire cooling rack to crisp up.
