1 cup butter
1/2 cup sifted confectioner’s sugar (icing sugar)
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup finely chopped nuts (almonds are best – you can also substitute almond meal)
confectioner’s sugar for rolling.
1. Pre heat oven to 200C
2. Mix butter, sugar and vanilla in your Kitchen aid with a flat beater until well combined.
3. Stir flour and salt together and add to the butter mix.
4. Fold nuts through the mixture until the dough comes together.
5. Roll dough into 1 inch balls.
7. Place on un-greased baking sheet 1 inch apart and bake 10 – 12 minutes or until set but not brown.
8. Have a shallow dish with icing sugar ready and while still warm, roll each in the icing sugar. It’s important to do this gently and while the bikkies are still warm.
9. Let Cool.
These are just my favourite – perfect for arvo tea or as a gift at Christmas.
Ms Gingham says: Yum!!! We have a Greek version called the kourambie which is virtually identical and they’re melt in your mouth yumminess!
Nerida of Nerida McMurray Photography says: “I love weddings and I feel blessed that my job is a significant element of a very special day for people. Giving the couple their photos after their honeymoon, and seeing the delight and joy on their faces as they reminisce over one of the most memorable days in their lives, is one of my favourite parts of my job.”
