Almond Cakes

200g blanched almonds
200g plain flour, sifted

a little orange flower water
grated rind 1 lemon, 1 orange, 1 tangerine

Lightly toast the almonds, grind coarse and mix with flour, sugar, cinnamon, rinds and a little orange flower water. Add just enough water to make a stiff dough. Knead lightly until well amalgamated and shape into ovals, approx. 17.5cm long, 5cm wide and 2cm thick. Place on a greased and floured baking trays and bake at 190°C for about 20 minutes. While still hot, spread with honey and press on the almonds.
