An incredibly worthwhile cause, I am thrilled to do something to help.
Well add some jam & flaked almonds and make the size a little smaller and you get these!
They are a huge hit at my house now, so much so my daughter Frey has made them twice! I hope you like them too.
Raspberry & Almond Mini Macaroons
50g caster sugar
60g ground almonds
10g plain flour
1 egg white
½ tsp vanilla or almond extract
50g raspberry jam
small amount of flaked almonds slightly crushed to decorate with
Preheat the oven to 170 C (fan 150 C)
Line a baking sheet with rice paper. I used 2 sheets measuring 14 x 18 cm.
Mix together the sugar, ground almonds & flour.
In a small bowl lightly beat together the egg white, vanilla or almond extract & 25g of the jam.
Stir the wet into the dry and mix well.
Makes about 15 small macaroons. Cute treat or as petit fours with coffee.
They keep for a few days in a tin if you have any left.
