It's so exciting when something that you thought could only be made by professionals is actually really simple to bake at home.

The great news is that these contain no fat and because of the way that they are cooked, they last for ages in a container in the pantry.

They also make a lovely gift, wrapped in nice paper or in a cute little jar.


1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 lemon, with rind finely grated
2 cups plain flour
0.5 teaspoon baking powder
150g whole almonds (leave the skin on)


Preheat the oven to 170C and line a baking tray with paper.

Place eggs, sugar, and grated lemon rind into a mixing bowl. Beat with electric beaters until the mix looks pale and thick.

Sift in the flour and baking powder, then add the almonds. On a floured work surface, bring the dough together in a ball until smooth.

Split the mixture in half. Form 2 logs around 25cm long x 5cm wide and place on the baking tray, leaving some space in between. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the dough is firm to touch and golden on top. Remove from the oven and cool completely for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 140C.

Now that the dough is cool, use a sharp knife to cut 0.5cm slices from each log on an angle.

Lay slices flat on the baking tray and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, turning once, until completely dried out. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely again.

These keep well, stored in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks.
