Thanks to Sylvia for letting me share her delicious & easy recipe.
Ingredients
  • 500g Blanched Almonds into almond meal
  • 500g caster sugar into icing sugar
  • 6 egg whites
  • Amarena cherries in syrup 250g
  • Almond flakes or pistachios to roll into the biscuits
Instructions
  1. Mix the almond meal, icing sugar & egg whites in the Thermomix to form a marzipan like consistency low and slow. (I did it at speed 4 for about 30 secs.)
  2. Form the biscuits into balls and put a cherry in the centre. Roll in almond flakes and let them sit for 4-6 hours the longer the better, at room temperature.
  3. Cook until golden on 160 degrees.
Notes
Sylvia normally makes a half batch.
You can make your own almond meal & icing sugar in the Thermomix on speed 10 for about 10 secs.
