Serves 18-24 Prep Time 15 mins Total Time 32mins


  1. 2 ¼ cups ground almonds

  2. 2 egg whites

  3. 1 tsp vanilla extract

  4. 1 cup caster sugar

  5. Pinch of salt

  6. ½ cup icing sugar

  7. Zest of 1 orange


  • 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. 

  • 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. 

  • 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. 

  • 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. 

  • 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.
