NQR Amaretti
  • Cooking Time: 13 to 14
  • 100g ground almonds (almond meal)
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract
  1. Preheat over to 180 degrees C.
  2. Sift together almonds, sugar and flour in a bowl to combine.
  3. Then mix in egg white and both extracts until well combined.
  4. Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on a parchment line cookie sheet.
  5. Flatten the balls of dough slightly. (Note: I like my amaretti soft so I don't flatten the balls of dough too much. If you want the cookies to be less soft, flatten the balls more.)
  6. Bake at 180 degrees C for 13-14 minutes or until lightly golden.
I found this recipe for amaretti on a fellow food-blogger's site. The results were Not Quite Right, though still very tasty! Read more on my food blog - Kitchen Wench
