|Recipe Name||Almond Biscuits|
|Traditional food from||Anywhere|
|Ingredients||50g unsalted butter
50g golden syrup
50g caster sugar
1 tbsp Grand Marnier (orange liqueur)
50g ground almonds
25g plain flour
|Preparation||Preheat the oven to 180°C / gasmark 4.
Line two baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
Put the butter, syrup, sugar and Grand Marnier in a small pan and heat gently until the sugar has melted.
Stir in the ground almonds and flour and allow to bubble gently for a minute or two.
Place 4 teaspoonfuls of the mixture, well apart, on one tray.
Bake for 2-3 minutes, or until the biscuits have spread and turned golden, with slightly darker edges.
Leave for a minute, then gently lift each biscuit with a palette knife.
Curve over a rolling pin or other cylindrical object. If the biscuits harden before you curl them, pop them back in the oven for a few seconds.
While you are curling one lot, cook another batch on the other tray.
Repeat with all the mixture.
Cool the curled biscuits on a wire rack.
