Amaretti Biscuits

Taken from the website:

Finally, I've attempted to make this biscuits ! I've always like almonds and these are fat free also. You can place a glaze cherry on top of each biscuit instead of an almond.

Makes approx 25 biscuits.


2 egg whites
125g almond meal
1 cup caster sugar
¼ cup sifted plain flour
Vanilla essence
Whole almonds for decoration
 Heat oven to 180C
 Place all ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat together for
5 minutes.
 Allow mixture to rest for another 5 minutes.
 Place the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a wide nozzle.
 Pipe small mounds onto trays lined with baking paper and place an
almond or cherry in the centre of each biscuit.
 Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
 Remove from oven and cool slightly before placing on racks.
