Almond Amaretti Biscuits


1kg almond meal
Eight egg whites – room temperature
2 tablespoons baking powder
500 grams caster sugar
3 teaspoons almond extract/essence
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
120 grams almond flakes
Icing sugar to dust


  • Pre heat oven to 170 degrees C
  • Beat egg whites with a whisk attachment, gradually adding sugar until thick and creamy (don’t over beat it) add your almond extract and vanilla bean paste.
  • Combine almond meal & baking powder in a seperate bowl and gradually fold (yeah like you do your clothes) through meringue until incorporated.
  • Scoop mixture and roll into little logs (ok not the best term but you get me, mine are bodgy because I let the kids do them so my OCD is a bit defeated) and roll into almonds flakes.
  • Place on a lined baking tray and dust with icing sugar. Bake for 13-15minutes until golden kissed – do not over bake them because no one like a hard pellet amaretti biscuit.

Let them cool and devour with a coffee. Keep in an airtight container if they last. Give some to your neighbour because you’re nice like that!
