150g/5oz plain flour
75g/3oz ground almonds
100g/4oz caster sugar, plus extra
a few drops of almond essence
1 egg white, lightly beaten
50g/2oz flaked almonds
• Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F/Gas mark 3. Lightly grease an
18 x 28cm/7 x 11in shallow baking tin.
• Combine the flour and ground almonds in a bowl. Cut the butter into
small pieces, and rub into the flour and almonds with your fingertips until
the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
• Stir in the sugar and almond essence, then squeeze the mixture together
to form a dough. Put the dough in the prepared baking tin. Spread to
the edges by pressing it down with a metal spoon.
• Lightly brush the top of the dough with egg white, and sprinkle the flaked
almonds over. Bake for 30–35 minutes until lightly browned. Leave to
cool in the tin, then cut into individual biscuits. Dust with a little extra
sugar just before serving.
