Italian Almond Cookies

A few of you have got in touch to say that you have misplaced the recipe card we included for these scrumptious cookies so thought we’d pop it up here for you!

If you bake them then please do send us a photo and let us know how you get on. Do pop a photo on Instagram with #ibakedcake or post to our Facebook page.

For this recipe you will need baking trays lined with greaseproof paper and the oven preheated to 170C/Gas 4. This mix will make anything from 20-50 cookies depending on how big you make them – just remember to make them all the same size as it will affect the cooking time.

  • 280g Ground Almonds
  • 280g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 1 tsp Almond Extract
  • Extra Caster Sugar and Icing Sugar for dusting


  1. Whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks
  2. Gradually fold the almonds and caster sugar into the egg whites
  3. Fold in the vanilla and almond extract
  4. Roll mixture into small balls – you can make these any size, just make sure that they are even
  5. Roll each ball in caster sugar and then in icing sugar
  6. Place them on the baking tray and flatten slightly with the tip of your finger or the back of a spoon
  7. Bake until golden on the edges – approximately 10-15 minutes
  8. Allow to cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack
  9. Find a comfy spot, brew a cuppa and gobble these sugary delights!
