Ingredients

BISCUIT INGREDIENTS

225 ground almonds
200 caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
6 tbsp Egg Whites
Sprinkles

ICING INGREDIENTS

1 cup icing sugar
Water to mix for drizzle piping
Sprinkles

Method

  1. Mix ground almonds and sugar in a bowl
  2. Separately whisk egg whites till just frothy
  3. Add enough egg whites and vanilla to the dry ingredients very gradually in spoonfuls till combined to a soft mixture that can be rolled into balls.
  4. Add a few sprinkles if desired for extra sweetness and colour.  If you prefer a very chewy middle just use the sprinkles for decoration.
  5. Form balls about the size of a walnut and place on a lined baking tray about 5 cm apart.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 170 Fan for approx 15-18 minute till light golden.
    They will still be soft and harden when they cool. Don’t overbake as you want a chewy middle.
  7. When cool drizzle some the icing over the top and sprinkle generously the most colourful funfetti you can find.
