  • 140g blanched almonds, lightly toasted
  • 115g soft unsalted butter
  • 2 tbs caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 140g (1 1/4 cups) plain flour

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Place the almonds in a food processor and finely grind.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the ground almonds and vanilla essence and sift in the flour. Mix to form a smooth dough.
  4. Use your hands to roll the dough into balls the size of a walnut. Transfer to the lined tray and bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and sift icing sugar evenly over the biscuits. Return to the oven for a further 2 minutes. Set aside on the tray to cool.
