- 125g icing sugar
- 2 tbsp water
- 110g caster sugar
Preheat the oven to 1700c and line a baking tray.
Mix the icing sugar, ground almonds and 40g of the egg whites in a large bowl to make a paste.
Put the water and caster sugar in a small pan and
heat gently to melt the sugar, then turn up the heat and boil until the
mixture starts to go syrupy.
Add the almond paste and mix again until it becomes shiny. Then divide the mixture in to 3 parts and colour on blue, one red and one green.
Spoon into the piping bag and pipe 4cm circles (yes mine are far too big!) onto the lined tray, about 2cm apart. Then give the tray 2–3 slams on a flat surface to flatten them. Sprinkle with desiccated coconut.
You can then sandwich them together with whipped cream - although we just ate them as biscuits. Next time I am going to investigate different fillings!
Also what I found out: Mine needed more like 20 minutes in the oven. I made my circles far too big!!!! They were really really yummy!!!!
