Almond Biscuits

Lately, I am on the lookout for recipes that is not time consuming but yet produce fantastic results. These almond biscuits are so easy to make and taste so good. I do still look at more elaborate recipes which have multiple elements but only use them when I have more time on my hands.

250g ground almonds
1 1/4 cup icing sugar
3 egg whites (50g eggs, if using 70g eggs then use 2 egg whites)
sesame seeds for coating (or almond flakes)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Put almond and sifted icing sugar in a bowl.
  3. Add egg whites and mix with a fork.
  4. Using 2 teaspoons, roughly shape the mixture into balls.
  5. Roll the individual balls and coat with either sesame seeds or almond flakes.
  6. Put on a baking tray and bake in preheated oven for 10-15 mins.
