Macaroons are very sweet meringue-like cookies with a crispy outside, and softer middle. They evolved from traditional Italian amaretti biscuits, and used to be made by monks in Italian monasteries as far back as the 9th century. Macaroons later became popular with Jews because they contain no flour and can be enjoyed during passover. Essentially, a macaroon is baked almond paste and would make a nice treat for afternoon tea. Based on the brands I used, each biscuit is about 110 calories.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 12 servings

Ingredients
125g ground almonds
125g Xylitol sweetener (or caster sugar if you prefer)
2 large eggs
1 tbsp cornflour
1/2 vanilla extract
3 drops food colouring (optional)


Method
Pre-heat your oven to 160 ༠C/ 140 ༠C fan/300 ༠F/2 Gas.



Mix the ground almonds, cornflour, and sweetener/sugar together.



Separate the eggs and whisk the eggs whites with the vanilla extract to soft peaks.





Fold the egg whites into almond mixture (and add the food colouring if you want).



Divide the dough into 12 rounds and bake in the oven, then allow to cool.
