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.
