  • 1 cup roasted almonds crushed
  • 2 egg whites lightly whisked
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp almond essence
  • ¼ cup icing sugar


  • Preheat oven to 180˚ degrees (or 160˚ degrees fan forced) and line your favourite baking tray with baking paper.
  • Place your ground almonds, egg whites, caster sugar and essences in a bowl and mix well with a fork. 
  • Sprinkle your icing sugar on chopping board or plate.
  • Roll a small scoop of mixture into a small ball and coat generously with icing sugar.
  • Bake for around 10 to 15 minutes, until the outsides are nicely crispy yet the cookies are still soft inside. 


Your Italian Almond Biscuits will be deliciously soft and chewy, so you'll be tempted to eat them straight out of the oven, but we recommend allowing them to cool slightly before serving. ????
