  • Baking
orange and almond cookies

Ingredients

Method

  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 ¼ cups ground almonds 
  • 1 cup caster sugar 
  • Zest of 1 orange 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup icing sugar
 

  1. Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celsius fan bake. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites to soft peaks using a whisk or electric beater. 
  2. Add the ground almonds, caster sugar, orange zest, vanilla and a pinch of salt, then fold until the ingredients are fully combined and have formed a thick mixture. 
  3. Sieve the icing sugar onto a plate. Spoon heaped tablespoons of biscuit mixture then drop onto the icing sugar. Roll to cover in icing sugar, then roll into a ball in your hands. 
  4. Place onto a lined baking tray, and press down to flatten slightly. Leave a 3-4cm space between each biscuit, and repeat with the remaining mixture. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until lightly golden on the edges. 
  5. Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
