Decorating Tips

  1. For an extra festive touch, sprinkle with edible glitter or colored sugar before baking to add a sparkle.

  3. Serve with a selection of teas or a glass of dessert wine to enhance the flavors of the cookies.

Ingredients

  • 200 g finely ground blanched almonds
  • 100 g of sugar
  • Juice of one medium sized lemon
  • Zest of half an organic lemon (grated)
  • 2 medium egg whites
  • 200 g all-purpose flour
  • Strawberry jam
  • Powdered sugar for rolling
  1. Mix the dry ingredients: In a bowl, mix together the ground almonds, lemon zest and sugar until well combined.
  2. Add the wet ingredients: Gradually add the egg whites and lemon juice to the almond mixture, mixing thoroughly after each addition.
  3. Form the dough: Slowly stir in flour until dough becomes slightly sticky but manageable.
  4. Shape the cookies: Using floured hands, shape the dough into 20 equal-sized balls (about 25g each). Roll each ball in the caster sugar, then flatten slightly and press a well in the centre of each with your thumb or the back of a spoon.
  5. Add jam: Place a small amount of strawberry jam in the hollow of each cookie.
  6. Cook: Place the biscuits on a baking tray and bake them in a preheated oven at 190°C (374°F) for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
