Almond Biscuits

  Ingredients :

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp almond essence
blanched almonds for decoration
beat egg for glazing


  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. 
  • Cream the margarine (or butter) and sugar together until light, white and fluffy. 
  • Beat in the egg and almond essence. Stir in the sifted dry ingredients to make a stiff dough.
  • Form the mixture into balls about 1 - 1.5 inch diameter and place these on a greased baking tray. Place half an almond (split lengthways) on each ball and press to flatten slightly. Brush with beaten egg.
  • Bake in a moderate oven (350 deg F / 180 deg C) for 20 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack. This quantity makes about 45 biscuits.
