Almond Cherry Biscuit
These are a typical Christmas biscuits, well…my grandmother made them during Christmas time, but they are so good that they are without a doubt, bake any time biscuit. With roots based on the famous Italian “ Pasta di Mandorle” these tiny Almond morsels are a delicious crunchy outside/chewy inside biscuit which are very difficult to resist.
Although the actual recipe is very simple to follow, there is a 12 hour waiting time before baking to allow the biscuit to settle and form a structure as this is a gluten free recipe. Nowadays you could easily add some xanthan gum to the recipe and cut back on the waiting, but I’m following traditional steps and this is the way my grandmother made them.
I hope you try these, they are very easy to make, and will grace your table beautifully. They truly are dressed to impress without much work tiny morsels of delight.
