Basic ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
  • 3/4 cup almonds
  • 125 g butter
  • 3/4 cup demerara sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • A small beaten egg

  • Preparation:
    • Previously preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

    • Pour the flour onto a baking sheet then place it in oven and toast the flour, shaking the baking sheet occasionally. Leave in oven for 8 minutes. Remove and reserve.

    • Toast the almonds until change color in a baking sheet. Now grind the almonds until they are finely ground.

    • The temperature of the oven should be reduced to 130 degrees.

    • Cream the butter, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the flour, finely ground almonds and beaten egg, and then combine all ingredients. The best way to mix the dough is with your hands.

    • Place a baking parchment on a work surface. Press the dough together to form a ball. Then flatten it down to about 1/2 inch thickness on the paper.

    • Use a Christmas cutter to cut out 2” rounds. With a small spatula move carefully the biscuits to a baking sheet for baking. Bake the biscuits on ungreased baking sheet for 25 or 30 minutes.
