Greek Almond Biscuits
3 cups almond meal
1 cup caster sugar
3 drops almond essence
3 egg whites, lightly beaten
1 cup flaked almonds
# Combine the almond meal, sugar and almond essence in a large bowl. Add the egg whites and stir until the mixture forms a firm paste. Do not over mix.
# Roll a tablespoon of the mixture into the flaked almonds, and then roll into an 8cm long roll. Repeat until all the mixture is used.
# Press the remaining almonds onto the rolls. Shape the rolls into crescents or other shapes, and place on baking paper-lined oven trays.
# Bake in a moderate oven (180c) for about 15 mins or until lightly browned. Cool on trays.
