Almond Biscuits Recipe


These are a nice plain biscuit given a lift by the subtle almond essence. You could add more essence to give it even more flavour. Although they are crisp around the edges they don’t have a hard crunchy centre.


  • 8 oz/230 gm butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond essence
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • blanced almonds


Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and then the almond essence and mix well. Stir in the remaining, combined dry ingredients. Roll into balls and place on an oven tray. Press down with a fork. Place an almond in the centre of each biscuit and gently press in. Bake at 180 C/350 F for 10 to 15 minutes (if you are using a fan-forced ovenĀ  then you will need to lower the temperature by up to 10 degrees centigrade and/or adjust the time). When cooked place on a wire rack to cool and store in an air-tight container.
