I have recently become very addicted to these Almond Macaroons. They are so quick to make- which means that they get eaten quickly too...
1 egg white
85g ground almonds
85g caster sugar (golden or whatever)
1/2 tsp almond extract
Some almond halves if you really want
Put your pinny on, wash your hands and get the oven on 180 C (gas mark 4..?)
1. Beat the egg white until frothy (looks like saliva mmm!)
2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients
3. Squash it all up into a dough
4. Roll up about 12 little balls from the dough and put on a baking sheet
4a. Pop an almond half on top of each one, if the mood takes you
5.Bung in the oven for about 15-20 mins (until pale golden)
Try and have the patience to let them cool down before scoffing the lot with a pot of tea.
Get someone else to do the washing up :-)
