Ingredients list

  • 200 g ground almonds
  • 3 egg white
  • 100 g powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp amaretto


  • Put the egg whites in a bowl and beat with a hand mixer until very stiff. Add the powdered sugar and ground almonds and mix with a dough scraper. Gently fold in the amaretto. If the dough is not yet firm enough, mix in a few more ground almonds.
  • Preheat the oven to 170°C/340°F top/bottom heat (150°C/300°F convection oven).
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper. With the help of two teaspoons, place small round heaps on the baking sheet with a distance of approx. 3cm/⅓in.
  • Finally, place in the oven and bake for about 18 minutes (convection oven about 15 – 17 minutes) until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool briefly before serving.
    Buon appetito!
