    Serves: 4 

    • 1 kg caster sugar
    • 7 or 8 eggs
    • 1 kg almond meal
    • a few drops of vanilla essence
    • a few drops of almond essence
    • slivered almonds or glazed cherries
    • icing sugar

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Mix caster sugar with eggs until combined.
    2. Slowly add almond meal to the mixture until you can roll it into a ball.
    3. Roll them into balls. At this stage I like to add slivered almonds but you can put glazed cherries on top. Spread the balls onto a baking tray about 10cm apart.
    4. Bake in a very hot oven for approx 5 minutes or until lightly coloured.
    5. Put the amaretti on a wire rack and sprinkle with icing sugar.


    For a more interesting taste you can add lemon essence.
