Cousin Clare brought a big box of these along to our holiday last month & they were delicious! She got the recipe from the honey buns blog which I will be having a good nose about on later!

I couldn’t get any unwaxed oranges or orange oil from my supermarket, so took a gamble & made them without, and got away with it.  I did put 1tsp of Almond Extract in just in case it needed some oil.

They were really easy to make & were very yummy. I suspect they would have been everso-slightly nicer with the orange in, but I’ll have to send DH out to search for some in town next time.

Ingredients

  • 4 organic egg whites
  • 400g ground almonds
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 50g ground linseed 
  • 1tsp orange oil [extract]
  • finely grated zest of 2 oranges
  • 4 tbsp of icing sugar
  • 14 whole almonds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180c/Gas4/350f
  2. Put baking parchment on baking sheet
  3. Whisk egg whites in bowl until they form stiff peaks
  4. Add the ground almonds, sugar, linseed, orange oil and zest. Mix together until you have a sticky dough
  5. Dust hands with icing sugar and divide dough into equal portions – the original recipe suggests making 14 snooker-ball sized balls, but I made more smaller ones.
  6. Roll into balls and roll in the icing sugar.
  7. Place on sheet and leave space, flatten slightly. Place a whole almond on each cookie.
  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden on top and mid golden underneath. Leave to cool on baking sheet and then transfer.
