By RubySlippers



  • 1 bag icing sugar (to dust)

  • 115g caster sugar

  • 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 230g ground almonds

  • 2 egg whites


  1. Sieve all the dry ingredients together into a bowl.
  2. Beat the egg whites until they become stiff and then fold them into the dry ingredients a bit at a time.
  3. Leave the mixture to set for a few minutes, and then roll into about 24 balls.
  4. Place the balls on a lined/greased baking sheet and bake for 18-24 mins at 175C (fan oven).
  5. The balls will be soft when you get them out of the oven, but they will harden up!!
  6. To finish, place the still warm balls into a bag of sifted icing sugar to coat them, then place on a wire rack to cool.

Handy Hint

Wet your hands before you roll the balls, and this will help you form the dough into rounds.
