Amaretti (Italian macaroons)

Amaretti
  • 500g almond meal
  • 1 3/4 cups (400g) caster sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tbs vanilla essence
  • 30 whole blanched almonds
  • 30 red glace cherries, halved

Makes 60-70, so you can halve this recipe

Preheat oven to 160°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Place almond meal, sugar, egg whites and vanilla essence in a large bowl. Beat with a wooden spoon until well combined.

Roll 2 teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Place on the trays. Press a blanched almond into the top of half of the biscuits and a glace cherry into the remaining balls.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until light golden. Set aside to cool slightly on the trays before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
