Serves 18-24 Prep Time 15 mins Total Time 32mins
2 ¼ cups ground almonds
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup caster sugar
Pinch of salt
½ cup icing sugar
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.
