Amaretti biscuits by Catherine Fulvio
These delicious biscuits are the perfect treat for after Christmas dinner.

350g ground almonds

350g caster sugar

4 egg whites

1 ½ tbsp amaretto

Butter, for greasing

Preheat the oven to 180C / Gas 4.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently mix in the sugar, amaretto and almonds.

Place some baking parchment on a baking tray and butter lightly.

Using a teaspoon place small dollops (about 2cm) onto the sheet.

Bake for 12–15 minutes until a pale golden brown. Leave to set on the baking tray, as they are quite soft at this stage. They will harden as they cool.
