Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 150C
  2. Cream the butter and caster sugar in a large bowl until smooth
  3. Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract and beat to combine
  4. Sift the flour into the mixture in stages whilst working it into the mix
  5. At this point using your fingers is best to bring the mixture together
  6. Roll the mixture into a tube
  7. Then roll in the almonds so that they cover all over
  8. Cover with cling film and put in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes
  9. Once chilled cut width ways in 1cm thick strips and lay the biscuits onto a baking sheet
  10. Place in oven for 15-16 minutes watching carefully until the biscuits are golden
  11. Bring out of the oven and allow to cool

These Almond Rolled Biscuits combined 2 of my great loves, biscuits and almonds, I would literally have almonds with everything and what is better than that? Nothing that is what, the biscuits were chewy and moist whilst the crisp almonds gave off a delicious flavour and crunchy texture, I will definitely be making these more often!
