4 medium egg whites
350g caster sugar
350g ground almonds
30ml Amaretto liqueur
icing sugar to dust
Place paper bun cases in a small bun or biscuit tray then preheat oven to 180 centigrade/ gas mark 4.
In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks. Gently fold in the ground almonds and sugar. Then add the Amaretto and mix in gently to a smooth paste.
Use a teaspoon to scoop a little of the mix into each bun case.
Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes until golden brown.
Either eat the Amaretti warm or place on a wire rack to cool. Dust with icing sugar.
If keeping for a few days place in a sealed airtight container or the Amaretti will go hard.
