almond & Orange blossom biscuits
Makes 25 biscuits
100g caster sugar
100g plain flour
125g ground almonds
150g softened butter
1 egg yolk
3 tsp orange blossom water
Preheat oven to 180 C. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment.
Add the sugar, flour, ground almonds and diced butter to a food processor. Blitx until is forms breadcrumbs.
Add the egg yolk and orange blossom water and tip onto a clean surface. Knead for a minute or so until smooth. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin to a thickness of about half a cm.
*I finish the rolling using an embossed rolling pin to give a tile effect*
Use a 7cm cutter to cut the biscuits, and carefully transfer the biscuits to the baking sheet using a fish slice.
Bake for 8 mins, until golden at the edges. Leave on the baking sheet for 2 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
